Senior Executive from Fortune 500 company to lead business development and marketing for integrated fluidic circuit inventor.

Fluidigm Corporation has announced Fred Walder has joined the company at its new Chief Business Officer. Walder joins Fluidigm after a long and celebrated career at a Fortune 500 company, Thermo Fisher Scientific, where he was most recently Senior Vice President, Customer and Commercial Excellence.

For Fluidigm, Walder will lead the company’s business functions to increase awareness and cement opportunities for Fluidigm integrated fluidic circuit-based technologies. Products based on these technologies bring various capabilities to researchers working on single-cell gene expression, high-sample throughput genotyping and automated sample preparation and target enrichment for users of next generation sequencers.

“Fred brings a new level of business acumen to Fluidigm. His experience and wisdom will help us uncover fresh opportunities and drive Fluidigm’s growth to new heights,” said Gajus Worthington, president and chief executive officer of Fluidigm. “We have been seeking a person of unique capabilities to fill this position and just weren’t willing to compromise on someone who didn’t meet all of our needs. Fred exceeded those requirements and we believe we have strengthened our team significantly with his addition to Fluidigm.”

Fred Walder, Fluidigm’s new Chief Business Officer said, “Fluidigm technology brings amazing new capabilities to life science fields such as single-cell gene expression and stem cell research. I believe integrated fluidic circuit technology is the real deal. It represents the next big evolutionary step in biological research and applications.”

Walder’s career began as an Engineering and Scientific Associate at Sandia National laboratories in 1979. A few years later he joined Nicolet Instrument Corporation where he spent 10 years in a variety of technical and management positions. In Thermo Fisher, Walder held various senior operating roles including president of several operating divisions. In his most recent position, Walder served as a corporate officer and Senior Vice President, Customer and Commercial Excellence reporting to Thermo Fisher’s Chief Executive Officer.

Walder received his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts. The University awarded Walder with their Career Achievement Award in 2008. He also completed the Technology Leadership Program at Stanford University’s Executive Institute, Graduate School of Business.
