The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), a leading supporter of research into new treatments for cystic fibrosis (CF), recently announced the appointment of Marc Ginsky as its executive vice president and chief operating officer. Ginsky will be in charge of overseeing the foundation’s daily operations, focusing on field management, information technology, and infrastructure.
He will work alongside and report to Dr. Preston W. Campbell III, CFF’s president and chief executive officer, to advance CFF’s mission to better treat and one day find a cure for CF.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Marc to our team and have him join us in our fight against cystic fibrosis,” Dr. Campbell said in a press release. “Marc brings significant expertise in health care with almost two decades of experience and will be an extremely valuable addition to our team. He shares a passion for our mission and will make major contributions across the organization, helping to ensure that serving people with CF and their families is at the heart of everything we do.”
Ginsky earned an M.B.A. from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business, and a J.D. from University of Pennsylvania Law School. He was a corporate attorney in private practice for 10 years before joining Covance, a contract research organization supporting clinical trials and market access needs for its clients. There, Ginsky worked in the legal department, from 1998 to 2006, supporting aspects of drug development and market access.
He began his most recent position, as vice president and general manager for the company’s Market Access Services division, in 2007, helping to develop and manage patient support programs for pharma and biotech companies, and provide them with health economics consulting support.
Ginsky brings to CFF more than 18 years of experience in the healthcare industry, with a focus on expanding patient access to needed treatments.
“I’m honored to become part of the CF Foundation — an organization that has had an unmatched impact on the lives of people with CF and their families,” Ginsky said. “I have been so impressed by the progress that has been made in the fight against cystic fibrosis, thanks to the Foundation’s efforts, and the deep connections the organization has with its supporters. I’m eager to put my background to good use on behalf of people with CF and the entire CF community.”
