ANN ARBOR – Genomic search company Genomenon has hired industry veteran David Anstey as Vice President of Sales. In his new role at Genomenon, Anstey is responsible for building out and leading the company’s sales and business development efforts.

“Dave brings 20 years of experience selling into life science companies, and he has an excellent track record of driving growth and building partnerships with his customers” said Mike Klein, CEO of Genomenon. “We’re excited to have Dave join our team and help drive our success.”

Anstey was most recently the Vice President of Sales at Fabric Genomics, which provides bioinformatics solutions to clinical labs. Prior to that, Anstey held positions at Illumina, YarcData, and IDBS, selling informatics solutions to genomics labs and pharmaceutical companies.

“What I found most compelling about Genomenon is its leadership position in genomic search for clinical decision support and its role in advancing pharmaceutical research and development” said Anstey. “Much of the genomic data that is critical to precision medicine has been buried deep inside millions of scientific publications. Genomenon unlocks this data and provides a comprehensive genomic landscape that accelerates patient diagnosis and drug discovery.”

Last month, Genomenon announced a $2.5 million equity financing round to fund the acceleration of its commercial efforts. Anstey is actively recruiting sales talent to drive that acceleration.
