Mr Enyedy brings more than 25 years of senior leadership experience in the biopharmaceutical sector, including executive management, corporate development and legal roles, across multiple therapeutic areas with a focus on rare diseases and oncology.

Mr Enyedy was also previously President of the Transplant, Oncology and Multiple Sclerosis division at Genzyme Corporation, and under his leadership the division achieved revenue growth from under $10 million to more than $675 million in just seven years. He began his career as an attorney at Palmer & Dodge, a Boston-based law firm where his practice focused on representing biopharmaceutical, high technology, and energy companies in M&A, licensing, and financing transactions.

 

Mr Enyedy also serves on the Boards of Directors of The American Cancer Society of Eastern New England and LogicBio Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: LOGC). He holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School and a B.S. from Northeastern University.
