Rob portrait

Genovis is expanding its sales and marketing organization at its Lund headquarters and has hired Rob Horsefield as Sales & Business Development Manager. Rob has multiple years of experience in the industry from sales in analytical chemistry, pharmaceutical development and protein chemistry.

We are happy and proud to have you on board, Rob. Welcome to Genovis!

 

Tell us a bit about yourself.
I moved to Sweden in 2004 from the UK and live outside Lund with my Swedish wife and two children. I am now a Swedish citizen and fluent in Swedish. In my spare time I am a passionate road cyclist and enjoy long rides with my friends.

 

If you were to describe yourself using only one word – what would that word be?

Trustworthy.

 

Tell us a bit about your previous working life.

I have a background in protein biochemistry and did my PhD in membrane protein crystallography. After that I worked at Gothenburg University for four years and then AstraZeneca for three and a half years. But most recently I was with Agilent Technologies for six years selling their analytical instruments in Southern Sweden and more recently liquid chromatography as their product specialist for the Nordics.

 

What will your main focus be here at Genovis?

My focus is to be the trusted associate at Genovis for our customers. I believe in always putting our customers first and securing their satisfaction. I like to work in a structured manner, pay attention to details and be on-time.

 

What do you believe will be the biggest opportunity in your new position as a Senior Application and Market Area Manager?

I hope we can leverage my experiences in protein biochemistry research, the biopharma market and LC/LC-MS instrument sales to grow Genovis’s business in Europe and Asia, and further expand our customer base.

 

Four Quick Questions:

Coffee or tea?

Tea, very strong with milk. But not fruit tea. And I never drink coffee, no, really.

 

Aerosmith or Depeche Mode?

Depeche Mode of course.

 

Ice cream or candy?

Both please, lots of.

 

Cricket or Rugby?

Rugby for sure, but there is still a small space left in my heart for cricket too.

We are happy and proud to have you on board, Kevin. Welcome to Genovis!

 

Tell us a bit about yourself.
Even though a Focused Generalist does not make perfect sense, I think it fits since I have a broad life sciences discovery background with a specificity towards LC-MS and orthogonal technology.

 

If you were to describe yourself using only one word – what would that word be?

Curious.

 

Tell us a bit about your previous working life.

My on-the-job learning experiences, with small and large companies, started with DNA/RNA focused laboratory work, moved into LC-MS to support small molecule pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism, and has migrated into a focus on providing biologics sample preparation technology for LC-MS analysis.

 

What will your main focus be here at Genovis?

On behalf of the Genovis team, I have the pleasure of building relationships with scientists in the western US. I am excited to learn more about the challenges my colleagues in the industry are facing and how our team can help.

 

What do you believe will be the biggest opportunity in your new position as a Senior Application and Market Area Manager?

Genovis has built a customer centric reputation that shows in current products and formats, and how LC-MS scientists are utilizing these tools. Genovis has demonstrated the ability to rapidly respond to customer requests and I am looking forward to helping promote current products while building for the future through customer feedback and collaboratory efforts.
