Nuzum, CPA; and Greg St. Clair — bring with them more than a century of invaluable experience in business development, marketing and financial expertise in the life-sciences space.
“These appointments signify our absolute commitment to aligning our Board’s expertise with the company’s strategic vision of developing and commercializing an offering that will enable us to support the improvement in healthcare outcomes for oncology patients and increase value to our shareholders,” said POAI CEO Dr. Carl Schwartz. “Each of these members brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and thought leadership that will be highly valuable as we execute our plans to develop and market AI-based predictive models that leverage our unique tumor bank.”
Bringing with her more than 25 years of business development and marketing experience in the life sciences market, Chung-Welch has built a strong record of national and global accomplishments. She currently works as an independent consultant in the life-science sector, with a targeted focus on the research product/tools market.
She has served as director of business development at both Cell Signaling Technology and Thermo Fisher Scientific as well as technical marketing manager for Fisher Scientific. In those roles, she conceptualized, launched and managed products and services in the laboratory, medical, biotech/pharma, academic and government markets. Chung-Welch earned a PhD in vascular physiology and cell biology from Boston University.

In addition, he co-founded and served as CFO for two companies: Tyburn Group, a financial services company that creates and delivers prepaid payroll and general-purpose card programs, and SVC Financials Services, one of the first companies in the field to integrate a mobile money solution for global distribution. As CFO of Loomis Fargo & Co. for almost 20 years, Nuzum transformed the company from a small Seattle-based armored car company to an international security and diversified-transportation company with more than $350 million in revenue and over 3,000 employees. An Army veteran and recipient of the Bronze Star and Army Commendation Medal, Nuzum served all over the world and as an intelligence officer in Washington, DC.
