Jason Hill
We worked together at Myriad Genetics
In the 10+ years that I've known and worked with Karl, he has always demonstrated ambition and drive. He continually looks forward and tries ... to anticipate where technology and science meets and positions himself to be at that epicenter. His strong science background is an invaluable asset to a cofounder that could focus on building the business.
