Vestaron hires COO

With more than 23 years of experience in global manufacturing and supply chain management, Ash Patel will serve as the new chief operations officer.


Ash Patel has been hired as the new chief operations officer at Vestaron. As an accomplished operations director, Patel has more than 23 years of experience leading manufacturing, engineering, capital projects, supply chain and IT/automation systems.

“With a background including global manufacturing and supply chain management experience in multi-national biotech companies and a strong focus on value creation, we believe the transition for Ash will be seamless,” shared Anna Rath, CEO of Vestaron. Rath continues to explain, “Ash’s previous roles, encompassing fermentation-based manufacturing oversight, plant expansions, supply chain management and international experience in LATAM, APAC, and Europe, as well as experience with regulated manufacturing processes comprise the resume Vestaron’s leadership team and board were searching for.”

Patel joined the team on June 12, shortly after the organization announced its Series B funding and completes the corporations’ senior executive team. “The recent success of the new IRAC group 32 coupled with the last round of fundraising clearly showed the potential Vestaron has, and I am pleased to have become a part of the team,” expressed Patel.

Patel will oversee all of Vestaron’s manufacturing and supply chain operations, including associated regulatory processes, throughout the globe.
