Commenting today, Allan Wood, Non-Executive Chairman of Venn Life Sciences Holdings Plc, said: “The divestment of Innovenn, and subsequent flotation of Integumen, has facilitated a more singular focus on our core business, which now provides a unique range of drug development services for our customers. This coupled with key management additions and the conclusion of certain systems implementations leaves Venn well positioned to execute on new business opportunities. I would like to welcome Christian Milla to the team, Christian’s deep sector knowledge will be of significant benefit to the Group as we grow in the future. I would also like to express my gratitude to Gracielle Schutjens for her significant contribution to the business thus far and welcome her future commitment to developing new business for the Group.”
