I met Bernard through a mutual friend. He is a very seasoned exec in the life science space. He is also very savvy when it comes to business ... strategy and selling into large biotech/pharma. He is a super-sharp guy. He is very well-spoken and has a great network in life science. He'd be a great advisor to any startup in life science or one looking to sell to life science companies. He also has great general business acumen and could help a startup or any company out side of life science as well. He's been a Strategy Consultant and also has an MBA from Harvard which he puts to good use. Lastly... he is a great guy and fun to be around.
