SAN DIEGO, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HALO) today announced the appointment of Sunil Joshi as Vice President and Global Product Team Lead (GPTL), for PEGPH20 and Oncology. With over 20 years of experience in the biopharmaceutical industry, Mr. Joshi brings strong expertise in oncology drug development and commercialization. Mr. Joshi most recently served as Head of New Product Strategy and Commercial Assessment at Onyx Pharmaceuticals where he co‐led the activities to identify, value and acquire new oncology assets for Onyx. In addition, Stephen Daly has been named Vice President, Hylenex ® Sales & Marketing and will assume leadership of the current sales and marketing efforts for Hylenex in addition to continuing to lead the team involved in preparing for the potential approval and subsequent launch of Hylenex for use in the pretreatment of the insulin infusion site for people with type 1 diabetes using insulin pumps.

Prior to joining Onyx, Mr. Joshi held roles of increasing responsibility in global marketing, U.S. brand marketing and sales at Bristol Myers Squibb. Most recently Mr. Joshi served as Oncology Business Unit leader for the Intercontinental Region, responsible for product launches and commercialization of oncology products including Erbitux ®, Ixempra ®, and Yervoy ® across multiple solid tumors (colorectal cancer, head and neck cancer, melanoma and breast cancer) and Sprycel ® in chronic myelogenous leukemia, and Philadelphia positive, acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Mr. Daly joined Halozyme in July 2013 as Executive Director, Endocrinology Marketing. Prior to Halozyme, Mr. Daly worked at Amylin for six years in increasingly senior roles in endocrinology marketing for products including Byetta ® and Symlin ®.  Mr. Daly is replacing James Shaffer, Halozyme's Chief Commercial Officer who resigned effective March 31, 2014, to spend more time with his family on the east coast. Mr. Shaffer will continue working with the company as a consultant during a transition period.

"I'm very excited to have Sunil Joshi, with his deep oncology experience, leading our PEGPH20 development efforts," said Dr. Helen Torley, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Through working with Sunil at Onyx, I am confident that he will be a strong and impactful leader for our oncology program. In addition, with the appointment of Steve, we will benefit from having a strong leader and experienced diabetes marketer shaping our commercialization efforts. I would also like to thank Jim for his dedication and significant contributions to the growth and success of Halozyme over the past two and a half years."
