Tetra Natural Health and Tetra Veterinary Health
ORLEANS, Ontario, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc., a leader in cannabinoid-based drug discovery and development (TSX VENTURE:TBP) (OTCQB:TBPMF), is pleased to announce that Mr. Richard Giguere has been hired as Executive Vice-President, Commercial Operations. He will be responsible for the commercial sales and operations of Tetra Natural Health and Tetra Veterinary Health.
Richard has more than 20 years’ experience in sales and marketing in the pharmaceutical industry from coast to coast. During his career, he has held various business development, management and negotiation positions and launched several new products on the Canadian market. He has worked for various pharmaceutical companies in sectors such as generics, branded products and medical devices. He has also worked with OTC, natural products and original medications. Richard is recognized for his deep ethical sense, respect of others and talent for developing long-term business relationships through flexibility and efficiency. In the past 10 years, he was also a board member at the companies for which he worked.
“We’re very proud to add Richard Giguere to our senior management team. His vast experience in the sales and marketing of OTC, natural health products and original medications in the pharmaceutical industry across Canada will help drive the execution of our corporate strategy for our Tetra Natural Health and Tetra Veterinary Health divisions,” says Guy Chamberland, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Tetra Bio-Pharma.
Richard Giguere’s arrival is perfectly aligned with Tetra Bio-Pharma’s decision to restructure its corporation by commercial markets. While Tetra Bio-Pharma will be dedicated to pharmaceutical development and commercialization of cannabinoid-based prescription drugs and treatments, Tetra Natural Health will develop and sell cannabinoid-based OTC (self-care) products to leverage the post-legalization market and Tetra Veterinary Health will focus on commercialization of cannabinoid-based products for the pet product market.
“I am honored to be able to play an active role in growing both the Tetra Natural Health and Tetra Veterinary Health divisions,” says Richard Giguere, EVP, Commercial Operations. “Tetra has a sound business model, and there are significant opportunities for us to grow our two commercial divisions. I am committed to making the best business and commercial decisions to accelerate the development of these huge potential markets for our cannabinoid-based products.”
As a result of this senior management change, Anne-Sophie Courtois left the corporation thereby terminating her role as Vice President, Marketing and Communications.
