WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --Tesaro, an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company, is proud to announce that co-founders Lonnie Moulder, CEO, and Mary Lynne Hedley, Ph.D., President and COO, have been named EY Entrepreneurs of the Year® 2017 Overall National Award Winners. They were also recognized as the National Award Winners in the Life Sciences category.
“TESARO could not have achieved this honor without the dedicated work of our associates and our strategic partners in advocacy, industry and academia. We are especially grateful to the patients who selflessly participate in our clinical programs, and who with their advocates help us to understand the needs of people living with cancer,” said Dr. Hedley. “We are humbled to accept this award on behalf of our entire TESARO team and we congratulate all of the entrepreneurs who participated in the 2017 national program; their vision and commitment inspire each of us to dream and accomplish more.”
“Thank you to EY and the judges for recognizing TESARO and the important work our team of associates does each day to address the needs of the patients we serve,” said Mr. Moulder. “We founded TESARO with a commitment to building a biopharmaceutical company that strives to put the patient at the center of what we do and because of our passionate and committed associates we have had the privilege of bringing two important new medicines to the cancer community in just seven years.”
As TESARO leaders, Mr. Moulder and Dr. Hedley enable their team to continuously seek out new possibilities to responsibly develop and commercialize innovative cancer treatments. Since its founding in 2010, TESARO has become a leading oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company with more than 750 associates across the U.S. and Europe.
