Vineti announces new executive team members

Today, Vineti, Inc., the provider of the leading digital platform of record for personalized therapeutics, is very pleased to share the news of new appointments for Heidi Hagen, Co-founder and Advisor, Louise Pacini, Chief Strategy Officer, and Brett Robertson, Chief Financial Officer.

Because the needs of cancer and rare disease patients continue, so do we. The last few months have been incredibly challenging and volatile for everyone. But the advanced therapies industry — including Vineti — has come together with steady hands, clear minds, and courage. As we continue to find new ways to move forward, our best-in-class team has grown that much stronger. 

First, it is my great honor to announce a new role for Heidi Hagen, as Co-founder and Advisor to Vineti. She has worked tirelessly in the cell and gene therapy industry, and for Vineti since our earliest days. Heidi is an active consultant and advisor for a variety of cell therapy companies, and sits on multiple Boards of Directors. With Heidi’s extensive track record in leading operations and commercializing innovative technologies worldwide, her expertise is in high demand.  We feel honored to have Heidi as an ongoing colleague and a key voice within Vineti. Our team looks forward to our continued work with her. 

Next, I’m pleased to announce that Lousie Pacini will be our new Chief Strategy Officer. Louise brings almost 25 years of global experience in biopharmaceutical and healthcare technology to Vineti. Before joining the company as Chief Strategy Officer, she led major biopharmaceutical engagements in Europe and the U.K. for IQVIA, a global leader in the use of data, technology, and analytics to advance healthcare. She has also led large-scale technology transformation programs for global pharmaceutical leader GSK in the Asia-Pacific region and leading medical testing provider Quest Diagnostics in the United States. Louise has already been playing a key role in driving progress with our strategic customers, partners, and investors.

Louise is a truly empathetic leader, always willing to assist and drive new projects, with a genuine enthusiasm for customer care. Louise also has an incredible intellect, and is one of the most thoughtful people I’ve ever worked with. I have the utmost confidence in her ability to lead Vineti in new expansions and initiatives. Welcome to the team!

We’ve also made one more truly singular hire. Brett Robertson, our new Chief Financial Officer, will be responsible for corporate development, our finance-related operations, and our strategic financial growth. Brett is an experienced senior executive who is strategically focused and driven to provide return on investment for shareholders. She has crossover experience in healthcare and technology, and has handled US and international operations for both public and private companies including Invuity, StubHub, CureSeq, Ask Jeeves, Critical Path, and Broderbund.

As a leader, Brett drives development and execution of financial and operational strategies, and as well as mergers and acquisitions to ensure growth and continued technological competitiveness. Throughout her career, she has been instrumental in developing strategy and building infrastructure capabilities, as well as in enabling liquidity through acquisitions and IPOs. Brett reflects our strong and deeply committed culture, and her impressive reputation for execution and achieving results makes her the right choice to lead our financial strategy. She has spent part of this year getting to know our team, and I’m so pleased that she is joining us full-time.

I couldn’t be more thrilled about these new colleagues, along with the many others who have joined us in 2020 across all our locations. This may be an unprecedented time, but we continue to thrive and grow!

We’ve been welcoming new hires weekly (remotely for now), with more to come. If you’d also like to join our expanding team, please check out our Careers page. Thank you for reading, and please stay safe and healthy.
