Berkley Life Sciences names Emily J. Urban as President
Ewing, NJ, October 18, 2018 – Berkley Life Sciences, a Berkley Company
We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Emily J. Urban as president of Berkley Life Sciences, a Berkley Company. Ms. Urban succeeds Jill E. Wadlund, who has been named non-executive vice-chairman of Berkley Life Sciences. The appointments are effective immediately.
Emily and Jill have worked side by side to build a unique organization to serve the life science industry, and to create a special, collaborative relationship with you, our customers. Commenting on this transition, Jill noted: “Emily is the best and natural choice to lead Berkley Life Sciences as we continue to grow and prosper. Change is very healthy for any company, and I am confident that Berkley Life Sciences will reach new heights of achievement under Emily’s leadership.”
During an all-employee town hall held earlier today, Emily expressed her thanks to W. Robert Berkley, Jr., president and chief executive officer of W. R. Berkley Corporation, and William M. Rohde, Jr., Executive Vice President of W. R. Berkley Corporation, for the opportunity to continue the mission that she and Jill began over 11 years ago. Emily also shared an emotional “thank you” to Jill for all they have learned together over the years, and wished her all the best in her transition.
To our valued customers, Emily expresses a message of appreciation for all of their support since Berkley Life Sciences’ inception in May, 2007. “Without you, we would not have reached this level of success in this relatively short period of time. I look forward to working with all of our customers to achieve further success, and commit that Berkley Life Sciences will provide the innovation and service necessary to meet our customers’ needs in a dynamic marketplace.”
Emily looks forward to speaking with each one of you personally in the near future. In the interim, if you have any questions, please contact your territory manager.
