“We could not be more pleased, or fortunate, to have Annette return to the Chair position as we prepare for our first approvals and transition to a commercial stage company,” said Brian O’Callaghan, CEO of ObsEva. “Annette’s contributions to ObsEva are undisputed and her distinguished career spanning research and development, commercialization, and business development constitute the ideal skill set to position ObsEva for success in this next stage of growth. I would also like to sincerely thank Frank for his years of Board contribution. The tremendous progress across the pipeline, which positions ObsEva for upcoming milestones, is a testament to Frank’s Board leadership. We wish him success in his future pursuits.”
Ms. Clancy has over 30 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry, including fifteen years in business development at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) where she was most recently Head of Transactions and Alliance Management, responsible for innovative deals ranging from early drug discovery partnerships to global commercial alliances, and mergers and acquisitions. Since her retirement from GSK in 2008, Ms. Clancy has advised venture capital health groups in the United States and Europe, namely as an Operational Investor for Jeito Capital and previously a Senior Advisor to Frazier Healthcare Ventures. Ms. Clancy has extensive Board experience and in addition to her role with ObsEva, she is Chair of the privately held French company, Enyo SA, and a non-Executive Director of the Swedish public company, Sobi. Prior to Ms. Clancy’s time in business development, she held a number of positions in clinical research, research and development project management, and commercialization. Ms. Clancy holds a BSc (Hons) Pharmacology from Bath University (UK) and a series of American Management Association diplomas (finance/marketing).
Ms. Clancy commented, “I’m honored to be reprising the role of Chair at ObsEva at this pivotal time and building on the momentum created by Frank and the executive team as ObsEva prepares for commercial launch. My dedication to ObsEva and conviction in its prospects is long-standing, and I am excited to be presiding over this potentially transformational period as we pursue our first approvals and seek to change the treatment paradigm for women with uterine fibroids and other underserved conditions.”
Dr. Verwiel commented, “It is a privilege to have been part of the exceptional team at ObsEva over the past six years, and I take great pride in all that we have accomplished together. I look forward to following ObsEva’s continued achievement as the company nears prospective approval of linzagolix and pursues its vision of delivering life-changing therapies to address the most challenging unmet needs facing women.”
