“We couldn’t be happier that David has decided to join our firm,” commented Nerites CEO Thomas Mozer. “This is a transitional moment for us, as we approach clinical trials for our first set of products. With both corporate partnerships and private financing, our financial picture is becoming more complex. David will provide an experienced hand to guide strategic growth and a commitment to responsible capital management in these difficult economic times. His track record should be very comforting to investors.”
