We recently spoke with Audrey Greenberg, co-founder and chief business officer at the Center for Breakthrough Medicines, to learn how her participation in the Collaborative is supporting her organization’s mission of saving lives by refining and accelerating the development and manufacturing of advanced therapies, and to record her story for the CEO Council’s “Discovery Starts with Me” video series.
“We are hiring at every level of the organization,” Greenberg said. The Center for Breakthrough Medicines, which currently employs 80+ people, plans to onboard 50-100 more hires by the end of 2021, and then 500 new staff members each year for the subsequent four years, growing the company to 2,000 employees by 2024 at the King of Prussia site. “The advanced therapy revolution will require an ever-increasing number of trained professionals. We participate in programs to retrain displaced workers for the industry, and we promote in schools the life science industry as a great career path here in Philadelphia,” she added.
