To effectively achieve our mission as the champion and advocate of biotechnology, BIO works with a broad network of organizations. Foremost among these relationships are the ones we possess with a broad network of state-based organizations known as the Council of State Bioscience Associations (CSBA).
Pennsylvania Bio (PA Bio) has been a key ally to BIO and vocal advocate for state and federal public policy in support of the biotechnology industry since our inception. Just last week, PA Bio welcomed Craig Tucker aboard as the new Vice President, Policy & Public Affairs.
Craig brings extensive experience in government affairs and advocacy to our organization and will continue PA Bio’s track record of success as the voice of advancement for the life sciences industry.
Craig is a founding partner of Novak Strategic Advisors, a lobbying and government affairs and government procurement firm, where he served as a government affairs consultant, lobbyist and chief financial officer. In this role, Craig was responsible for the coordination of advocacy activity for clients in a diverse range of industries, advocating client positions before the Pennsylvania Legislature, the governor’s office, cabinet agencies and various regional governing bodies.
BIO congratulates Craig on his new position and welcomes him to the CSBA community.
