News Feb 12, 2013
As COO, White will be responsible for overseeing the daily operation of Aqua and developing business strategies, serving as second-in-command to the company’s President and CEO, Craig Ballaron.
“I can always depend on Ted to be ahead of the curve,” said Ballaron. “He’s a fantastic manager, and his combination of sales savvy and steadfast leadership have helped him move up quickly within the company.”
White joined Aqua in 2011 following a successful 21-year sales career with Novartis Pharmaceutical Corporation, where he led sales teams in new product launches and executed tactics for multiple billion-dollar brands. In July 2010, PharmaVoice magazine named him one of the top 100 inspirational leaders in the health sciences field.
As the new Director of Finance, Boyer, who is a licensed CPA, will manage the company’s budget and lay out operational fiscal policies.
“Having someone with a solid, analytical understanding of both numbers and the pharmaceutical industry in general is invaluable to Aqua,” said Ballaron. “As Controller, Mark demonstrated a knack for both. He’s adept at data analysis and managing corporate funds, so moving to the role of Director of Finance was a natural progression.”
Prior to joining Aqua in 2010, Boyer worked as a Senior Accountant for Teleflex Incorporated’s ARROW International division, where he was responsible for financial reporting, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and fixed-asset management.
“This is a dynamic time of growth and change for Aqua,” said Ballaron. “I am excited to help write the next phase in our company’s history with Ted and Mark at my side.”
