Before joining the company nearly four years ago, Bourdage spent his career in the pharmaceutical industry.

Baim began his career at The Procter & Gamble Company in 1984, and has since held several leadership, management and technical positions at other prominent companies including Novartis and Bristol-Myers Squibb/Mead Johnson. Most recently, he served as an analytical laboratory director, designing a new analytical chemistry lab and revitalizing chemistry operations by adding new technologies and staff to optimize technical guidance and improve customer service. These efforts resulted in a sustained, double-digit growth rate for the company.
