Innovotech Announces Appointment of Dr. Tyler Boone as COO



 

Edmonton, Alberta – TheNewswire - April 14, 2021 – Innovotech Inc. (TSXV:IOT)  (“Innovotech” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Tyler Boone as Chief Operating Officer of the Company to replace Dr. Amin Omar who, after many years of productive and valued service to the Company has relocated to his homeland, the Kingdom of Jordan, where he will remain a valued advisor to Innovotech.

 

Dr. Boone has been with Innovotech since mid 2017 when he was hired as a Microbiologist IV. He was appointed Laboratory Manager in December 2017.  Dr. Boone obtained his undergraduate degree (BSc. Honors in Microbiology) in 2006 at the University of Alberta in the Department of Biological Sciences.  He stayed to earn his PhD at the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Medical Sciences, following which, he accepted a Post Doctoral Fellowship at Loyola University in Chicago where he spent five years of laboratory work primarily in the study of spore formation.  Through this internal appointment we expect that the transition of the COO office to Dr. Boone will be completely seamless as he knows both our clients and our business well.  

 

“We are privileged to be able to fill this key office internally with a scientist and manager of Dr. Boone’s calibre” said Dr. James Timourian, President of Innovotech.  “We look forward to continuing to deliver our exacting contract research services to our valued clients under Dr. Boone’s watch.  Our work begins and ends in our laboratories and that work is continued by him in his new role as Chief Operating Officer”.
