Hello, I’m Liz and I am the Director of Business Development at Lhasa Limited.
Before coming to work at Lhasa in December 2003 I did my first degree in Biochemistry and Biological Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. After this I travelled to Borneo (Indonesia) and Uganda to do some conservation studies which involved measuring trees, counting orangutan nests and catching small rodents and bats amongst other things.I then started a job on a Graduate Management Program with a logistics company called Christian Salvesen which I did for a year. However, I missed science so I decided to do a PhD in Plant Biochemistry at the University of York.
After completing the PhD I came to Lhasa Limited in order to combine my scientific background with a business role. After working at Lhasa for about 5 years, I proposed the business development position in order to specifically focus on building excellent regulatory relationships and collaborations and to initiate and champion new projects for Lhasa Limited.
I’ve now been in business development for over 6 years and expanded the team over that time period. In business development we look after regulatory accounts and collaborations; we also bring in the new projects/products and oversee these until they are handed over to the operations team.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, running, ski-ing and orienteering.
