Dr. Patti joined Telix in March 2021 to lead the Company’s United States (U.S.) operations.

Darren holds a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) from the University of Illinois at Chicago and is an Authorised Nuclear Pharmacist.

Dr. Christian Behrenbruch, Managing Director and Group CEO commented, “Darren has been an exemplary leader in our Americas region and fundamental to the success of our commercial operations and vertical integration strategy. Darren’s deep experience in radiopharmacy network management and operations, combined with an intricate understanding of the Telix business makes him the ideal leader for our global operations function as we expand into new commercial markets and bolster our manufacturing capabilities to support our therapeutic and imaging programs. I am looking forward to continuing to work closely with Darren in this new role as we prepare to bring additional diagnostic products to market and drive towards our next phase as a leader in therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals and precision medicine.”
