The News: M&A Beyond Wall Street

eFC logo

Biopharmaceutical company Biogen has hired Michael E. Lytton, formerly a general partner at the venture firm Oxford Bioscience Partners, to be its executive vice president of business and corporate development. As the Deal points out, the move comes as Biogen is exploring the purchase of Acorda Therapeutics to get to a multiple sclerosis treatment it has under development. Since a lot of growth in the pharmaceutical world happens through acquisition, it's easy to see where companies in the sector would value talent like Lytton's, and why exploring opportunities there could be a smart move for people looking for a new area to put their financial skills to work.
