I have over 17 years of work experience as a consultant and auditor. I understand what it’s like to feel stuck in a career and how to reinvent and pick yourself up to scale greater heights and feel fulfilled (well for a while before you need to reinvent and repeat the process). Have worked for great entrepreneurs who embark on projects with just a vision and guts, only to realise their multi-million dollar projects a few years later. I provide advisory services to public utilities and government departments across Africa and have worked on PPPs – so happy to provide tips to those in those sectors.

Justin has over 35 post-Ph.D. years of experience in biotechnology and pharmaceutical process development, manufacturing, and quality, and in development, application, marketing, and sales of software solutions to address operational issues and quality compliance in the global biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. He has held several executive and management roles with responsibility for large and small teams in research and development labs and production plants, and in software product management, product development, and product marketing and sales. During the span of his career, he has participated as Principal Scientist in two IPO’s (Genetics Institute in 1986, and Somatogen in 1991), and as Founder in the transaction that resulted in the sale of Aegis Analytical Corporation to Accelrys in 2012 and its subsequent integration into Dassault Système’s BIOVIA brand.
As founder of Aegis Analytical Corporation in 1997, Justin was responsible for conceiving the initial product concept and requirements for the Discoverant software system, and had the leading role in securing $25 million of venture funding, as well as the first product sales, industry partnerships, staffing, management, customers, scientific advisers, product suite names, trademarks and patents. His other roles at Aegis were as the primary conduit for information flow between the FDA, Aegis and the industry to guide the company’s product vision and market strategy; initiating lead development to opportunity stage and supporting sales efforts for closing $75 million of total business with Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology companies; making presentations to bring Aegis and its offerings to the attention of decision-makers and influencers in prospective customer companies, professional groups, industry organizations, and regulatory bodies; and supporting the penetration of Aegis’ offerings into new markets and territories. Aegis was acquired by Accelrys, Inc. in October of 2012 for $30M, and Accelrys was then acquired by Dassault Systèmes for $750M to become the BIOVIA brand in April of 2014.
