JL is a serious intellectual with both academic and commercial experience. It is an unusual combination and even more unusual to be so good at both. He works very hard and adds value to every effort in which I was involved with him. He manages people well, also, when he is leading and making decisions as well as being a team member.
Lynne GaileyIndependent Director at Francis Crick Institute
Former Global Communication Leader, GE Healthcare
Jean-Luc as a knowledgeable research scientist who is able to communicate complex scientific theories using simple understandable language that can be easily understood by non-scientists. Jean-Luc has superior communication skills. He is highly motivated, enthusiastic and energetic.

Jean Luc is a market visionary and thought leader in the Molecular Diagnostics space. He also has great passion for creating new markets for products and services for companies looking to find new growth opportunities. I strongly recommend JL to healthcare companies looking for growth leaders.
Eric AgdeppaExecutive Director of Innovation, Hill-Rom Former Global Molecular Imaging Scientist, GE Healthcare
For more than six years I have worked with Jean-Luc and have seen his mastery of molecular imaging as a scientist and innovator. That expertise is seen through his ability to publish original work on apoptosis, author review articles on radiopharmaceutical development, enable collaborations between GE and academia, and drive the field forward as part of industry panels and boards. I have admired his curiosity and problem solving ability both of which mesh well with his uncanny ability to seek global solutions in molecular imaging and personalized medicine.
S. Marshall PoindexterChief Communications and Marketing Officer
Former Senior Leader, Global Corporate Communications and PR, GE Healthcare
Jean-Luc is able to bridge the deep scientific expertise he has with a clear understanding of how to grow a business. In addition, he can easily explain complex scientific and biotechnical topics to customers, the media, employees, and other key stakeholders. His scientific acumen in pharmacy and radiochemistry could be very valuable to research or academic groups that seek to understand how best to commercialize products in those areas. He also has a strong range of experience that could assist in the human evaluation of translational diagnostics. But most importantly he has a passion for scientific advancement leading to improved patient care. It is Jean-Luc’s innate ability to wield the power of science to help companies create products that clinicians can use to diagnose and treat disease earlier that sets him apart from his peers.

For me, one phrase comes to mind when I think of Jean-Luc: “consummate scientist.” At the drop of a hat, he will share his time –and knowledge – with you, and simply for the asking! And if Jean-Luc attends your meeting, the meeting is instantly better off because of it.
Micheal HaimourGeneral Manager, Global Field Research Programs GE Healthcare
Jean-Luc has exceptional ability to simplify and explain complex scientific concepts. He is very experienced in working with academic institutions. Always willing to go above and beyond to help meet customers’ needs.
Philip FantasiaPresident, Fantasia Consulting Associates LLC
J-L successfully managed the research and development of a chemically challenging new linker arm for annexin as well as its reformulation during a critical part of the IND clinical program persevering thorough many difficult challenges in radiochemistry and quality under a very tight budget. He has exceptional management skills, organizing a radiochemistry lab, hiring and retaining a very talented group of scientists… I highly recommend J-L for high level scientific and business roles that make best use of his excellent skills.
David MorraAdjunct Faculty, Cairn University Former Vice President, Mallinckrodt/Tyco
As the leader of my Nuclear Medicine R&D team, Jean-Luc enthusiastically contributed the important balance between the scientific promise of new products and the business realities of budgets, timelines and ROI. He brought new life to a dispirited program, rebuilding it with projects that had great promise for cost effectively improving patient care through earlier diagnoses and treatment.
Brent BarronPresident and Chief Executive Officer, NGAGE-US
Former Senior Director of Marketing, Imaging, Mallinckrodt Medical Inc.
The leadership Jean-Luc has demonstrated has been a refreshing reminder of his high caliber thinking style and very engaging interpersonal style. He demonstrates maturity, enthusiasm and sound judgment in inspiring new ways. He demonstrates a consistently thorough grasp of the science related to any project. Since our work together was primarily focused on new drug development or M&A activity, I gained a deep appreciation for his empathy and understanding of the business aspects. He could evaluate technology scientifically while completely supporting return on investment analyses. J-L is pleasant to work with, drives team progress and cooperation, and leads with enthusiasm. I strongly recommend his work based on our extensive professional experience together.
