Joslin Names John Brooks as President and Chief Executive
Thursday, March 31, 2011
Joslin Diabetes Center has appointed John L. Brooks III, a well-known leader in the life sciences industry, as President and Chief Executive Officer.
"Having seen John in action and worked closely with him, I know he will bring exceptional talents and experience to the role of Joslin chief executive," said Ralph James, interim Chairman of the Board of Trustees. "He has been a very successful senior executive and director in a number of life sciences firms, he is deeply committed to improving the lives of people with diabetes and he has played a major and highly productive role at Joslin since joining the Board in 2005."
Brooks became Chairman of Joslin's Board in May 2010. He will leave that role to take the chief executive position. He is replacing Kenneth E. Quickel, Jr., M.D., who retired as Joslin's President and CEO in October 2010.
"I'm deeply honored and excited to take up the challenge as CEO at Joslin," said Brooks. "With the diabetes pandemic that is exploding across the world, Joslin's excellence in research, clinical care, education and awareness is even more essential than ever. We have never been more focused in advancing this institution so we can continue to provide the right solutions in all aspects of diabetes."
