"Doug Lawrence has the ideal experience, perspective and leadership skills to guide CeQur as the company moves rapidly through manufacturing scale-up and into broad commercialization of the PaQ Insulin Delivery Device," CeQur chairman Erik Milledge said in prepared remarks. "Importantly, he has proven ability to successfully launch diabetes devices in multiple markets, and understands the needs of those who have diabetes, those who treat the disease, and the companies that support them."
