Botanix has announced the promotion of Dr Howie McKibbon to the role of Chief Operating Officer, from his current position as Chief Commercial Officer.
Howie has more than 20 years of leadership experience in the pharmaceutical industry. He has launched 15 products including 11 in dermatology, and managed over 30 dermatology products. Importantly too, he played a significant role in two of the world’s largest dermatology acquisitions with combined valuations of $7.8 billion.
Howie’s role will be expanded to include responsibility for all commercial, manufacturing, medical affairs and regulatory activities. We believe the breadth and depth of his experience will be invaluable as the Company prepares for FDA mid-cycle review of our lead asset, Sofpironium Bromide in late Q1 2023.
