Curia, formerly AMRI, a leading contract research, development and manufacturing organization, today announced the appointment of Niall Condon as president of its Manufacturing Division, with immediate effect. Condon will drive growth and be responsible for operational delivery of Curia’s commercial manufacturing services and products, including API and Drug Product.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Niall to Curia at this critical point in our growth journey,” said Curia Chairman and CEO John Ratliff. “Steve has transformed our manufacturing capabilities over the past few years with a blend of scientific depth and operational excellence. I am confident that Niall will continue to drive our progress with his extensive experience and an exceptional record of success leading global teams across all aspects of the global biopharmaceutical supply chain.”
