“As a long-time advisor to Dyadic, I am intimately familiar with the Company and thrilled to have the opportunity to join the team” said Brooks.

Brooks continued, “Dyadic continues to compete with larger industrial enzyme companies using its game-changing C1 enzyme expression platform. Together, we will continue to build commercial momentum through enzyme sales and strategic partnerships across a wide range of sectors including cellulosic biofuels, biopharmaceuticals and industrial applications. We look forward to introducing new C1-based products to the many industries and companies that can benefit from C1’s ability to produce enzymes and other proteins with class leading performance.”

While at J.P. Morgan, Brooks advised clients across a broad spectrum of sectors, including chemicals, renewable energy and industrials.

He has held senior operational, engineering and manufacturing positions with Dell Inc., Mars Inc. and Ford Motor Company.
