Fauad was most recently the CEO of Bonti, a biotech startup that he co-founded in 2015 in an area of biologics where he saw a key need. He was right, as the company had great success and was acquired by Allergan about a year ago. Before Bonti, he was an executive at Allergan in biologics development and manufacturing.
He’s had a very successful career in biopharmaceuticals, and was at both Baxter and Regeneron before Allergan. Fauad has developed quite a reputation as an innovator and leader in the industry, and he’s already at work on his next venture, Ornovi, which he’s going to build here in Orange County.
He’s currently on the board at Biopharm, as well as OCTANe. He is a great example of an entrepreneur driving innovation and making it happen in Orange County.
