PALO ALTO, Calif. - November 1, 2017 - Bioz, Inc., developers of the world's first and most comprehensive search engine for life science experimentation, today announced the appointment of Sarah Steele Chang as Vice President of Sales. Chang will be responsible for the management of all sales efforts and the growth and development of Bioz's sales teams.
"Sarah's proven success and unique background make her a strong addition to our executive team as we continue our rapid-growth," said Daniel Levitt, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Bioz. "Her experience with online rating systems and cultivating client partnerships will be a critical asset as we expand our products and services for stakeholders across the life science sector. We are excited to have her join the team."
Chang's extensive sales experience will support key Bioz monetization vehicles, including the Vendor Partner Program with its Bioz Stars scoring system that connects scientists with the best research tools. The proprietary evidence-based objective Bioz Stars scores, available for over 200 million life science experimentation products from 50,000 vendors, is globally recognized as the benchmark of quality for scientific products. Chang will also spearhead the monetization of the company's Data Analytics Program, which provides customers with never-before-available competitive landscape insights and product usage-share data.
"The life science industry is ripe for disruption as endless dollars and time are lost analyzing, aggregating and structuring data within and between research papers," explained Chang. "I see a lot of similarities between Bioz and a platform like Yelp and am excited to support Bioz in its mission to help scientists make faster and smarter experimentation decisions, ultimately speeding up drug discovery and increasing the rate of success in finding cures for diseases."
Chang brings over a decade of sales experience at Yelp, advancing through the company to her most recent position as Regional Vice President of Sales where she was responsible for the team that secured $150 million in annual revenue. She also led the company's national San Francisco office and developed the infrastructure to support Yelp's top national accounts and the training and development of the national sales representatives.
