Leadership placements announced at Marken, Eloxx, ABEC


Aug. 31, 2018 (Park City, UT) The Hennessy Group, an executive search firm specializing in the life sciences industry, announced the completion of three new leadership placements at Marken, ABEC and Eloxx Pharmaceuticals.

Marken has selected Inge Briand de Crevecoeur to serve as Director of Ops, Eastern Region. Ms. Briand de Crevecoeur brings more than 20 years experience in the logistics industry to the role, previously serving as Head of U.S. Ocean Freight Operations at DHL. Currently, Marken, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UPS and the life sciences industry’s second largest specialty courier company, is the only patient-centric supply chain organization dedicated to the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries.

Martin Pleyer has joined the team at ABEC as the firm’s Chief Operating Officer. Since 1974, ABEC has been delivering integrated process solutions and services for manufacturing in the biopharmaceutical industry, and the addition of Mr. Pleyer will contribute to ABEC’s leadership role in this space. As COO for U.S. operations at Grenzebach, Mr. Pleyer saw the company named Georgia’s Small Manufacturer of the Year (2017), and was personally named “Face of Manufacturing” in May 2016 by Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) for his role in developing an apprenticeship program for high school students.

Joining Eloxx, a global biopharmaceutical company developing treatments for rare and ultra-rare premature stop codon diseases, is Dr. Matthew Goddeeris. Dr. Goddeeris will serve as Senior Principal Scientist, and brings with him 10 years’ of research experience, including his role at Mitobridge, where Dr. Goddeeris helped the company reach its goal of three Investigational New Drugs (IND) in five years, explored new indications and led programs to the clinical stage.

“The contributions that Ms. Briand de Crevecoeur, Mr. Pleyer and Dr. Goddeeris have already made to the life sciences community are immense, which makes each of these top leaders ideal to serve these growing companies,” said Robert Hennessy, CEO of The Hennessy Group. “We’re proud to help Marken, a company that we’ve worked with on multiple searches, ABEC and Eloxx connect with talent on these levels.”
