Mr. De Paolantonio joins BDSI with over 35 years of varied financial and business experience in the pharmaceutical industry, and his skill set is intended to broaden BDSI's executive level expertise as the company continues its evolution from a research and development and outlicensing business into a commercial stage enterprise.

While at CorePharma, Mr. De Paolantonio was directly involved in the financial and commercial strategy to establish their proprietary labeled portfolio of products. In addition, he previously served in finance and controller positions in roles of increasing responsibility at Colombia Laboratories, where he was also responsible for business development and logistics, including supply chain management for the company's first commercial product launch.
