Cybin Corp., a life-sciences company advancing psychedelic pharmaceuticals, has announced that Doug Drysdale has been appointed as CEO. With more than three decades of experience, Drysdale brings invaluable insight and expertise to his new role. In 2014 as a corporate director of a NASDAQ-listed pharmaceutical company, he led the company’s recapitalization efforts, raising an estimated $65 million. Consequently, he was appointment chairman and CEO and revamped the company’s management team and board of directors while also building a 220-person sales team — all within the first year. Ultimately he grew the company’s enterprise value exponentially from $80 million to around $800 million. In addition, as head of M&A at Actavis Group between 2004 and 2008, Drysdale led 15 corporate acquisitions across three continents along with raising approximately $3 billion of capital and managing lending syndicates, including over 25 banks, to fund growth. “With his myriad business accomplishments, Doug is the ideal leader for Cybin,” said Cybin co-founder and COO Paul Glavine in the press release. “We believe that his extensive health care sector background and international company management skills will help Cybin strengthen partnerships, develop strategic alliances and expand our international presence. We believe his strong leadership experience will help focus Cybin during our initial path to profitability.”
