I’m Mark McBride. I work in CAR-T cellular therapy in Seattle, Washington. I focus on digital strategies and innovations that integrate supply chain, manufacturing, and patient operations in a very new segment of personalized healthcare. It’s a complex and humbling space, but deeply rewarding. Way back, I graduated from West Point with a degree in computer science and spent several years as an Army officer in the Signal Corps, which is the Army’s communication branch. After the military I transitioned to the seemingly unrelated world of biotechnology, working at Genentech and Roche. I’ve spent time in inventory planning, demand management, ERP lauch and sustainment, product data management, and clinical study data analytics. Now I’m a leader in the CAR-T business unit at Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) by way of back-to-back aquisitions of Celgene and Juno Therapeutics. If you aspire to find a career in this space, don’t hesistate to contact me.
In my free time I tinker with my Linux-based homelab. I find it fascinating to bootstrap even the most mundane things. Sure, you can download an app, but where’s the fun in that?! When I’m not geeking out in my garage lab, you can find me chasing kids, traveling with my wife, and cheering on the Mariners.
