NanoString Names VPs
NanoString Technologies, the Seattle-based maker of a genetic analysis instrument, said today it has hired two new vice presidents to fill out its commercial management team. Chris Grimley, the new vice president of marketing, previously worked at Agilent Technologies and Applied BioSystems. Katherine Webster, NanoString’s new vice president of worldwide sales, comes from Qiagen, and before that, 454 Life Sciences. NanoString has seen demand for its instrument increase in the past year, and it has staked out a new strategy to diversify beyond its base of academic research customers, and into a new market of cancer diagnostics.
