AM Technical Solutions (AM) is proud to introduce life sciences industry leader Scott Lessard as the new Vice President, Life Science.
In his executive role, Scott is responsible for contributing to the growth of our Life Science division as well as other business units within AM.
Scott brings more than 18 years of industry experience to our company, with a deep understanding of the management, operations, and technical aspects of the life sciences industry.
The Right Mix of Life Sciences Expertise For VP Role
In his prior industry role, Scott gained significant, relevant experience within the technical services sector of the life sciences industry. Scott also supported the business side of Architectural & Engineering Design, Construction Management, Project Management, and Commissioning, Qualification, and Validation (CQV).
Additionally, Scott built a successful career on the operations side of the life sciences industry, specifically within Upstream and Cell Culture Operations.
Scott’s work with a leading pharma company included leading the site through a very challenging Consent Decree. In some cases, this consisted of full remediation of Quality Systems, Process, Utility and Automation Systems, and Documentation. The Consent Decree lasted nearly eight years. Completing this effort was one of Scott’s career highlights.
During this period of his career, Scott was responsible for all aspects of manufacturing over site and operations management. In addition he frequently gravitated toward complex capital projects, specializing in Tech Transfer, Manufacturing Operational Readiness, and delivery of full EPCMV capital projects. This experience provided Scott with rewarding, hands-on technical expertise that transfers well to his executive role in our company.
How Scott Lessard Will Support Growth for Our Company
As the VP, Life Science, Scott will be focused on growing and expanding our life sciences division to take advantage of tremendous opportunities in the industry.
As a cross-functional leader, Scott will also contribute to other key areas of the business by providing unique industry perspective and lending his expertise to support decision-making.
“Life sciences, especially in the U.S., is exploding and I see a tremendous opportunity for AM to contribute and ultimately play a pivotal role in the industry for years to come,” says Scott.
“AM has been very welcoming and I am most excited about the opportunity to make my mark in other key areas of the business that I wouldn’t have previously had the opportunity to explore.”
Scott Fits Our Company Culture
As a faith-based company, we are also confident that Scott Lessard is the right person for the VP role because his values and beliefs align with our core values.
