Actuated Medical CEO Honored with Life Sciences PA Frank Baldino Bioscience CEO of the Year Award
BELLEFONTE, Pa. - May 27, 2021 - PRLog -- Maureen L. Mulvihill was honored at the Life Sciences Pennsylvania annual awards ceremony, May 26, 2021. The Frank Baldino Bioscience CEO of the Year Award recognizes a CEO who has demonstrated visionary leadership and active participation to advance the science industry. Frank Baldino, Jr., founder, and CEO of Cephalon, Inc., was a pillar of the life sciences community in the Greater Philadelphia region and of the biotechnology industry.
Like Frank Baldino, Maureen L. Mulvihill is widely recognized as a visionary leader of Actuated Medical. The company works to solve clinical needs using electronically controlled motion. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, her team quickly reacted and within 7 days stood up a reusable face shield manufacturing line - shipping shields to first responders, manufacturers, and schools. Maureen set aside her entire commercial business to repurpose her manufacturing facility and make these face shields that addressed the PPE shortage. The product line grew over the next 4 months due to calls from businesses, schools, and parents to include reusable face shields for children, hard hats, and sports helmets. In 2020, AMI grew in people and doubled its footprint to accommodate manufacturing scale-up.
"It takes a village and Covid-19 brought out the incredible strength of the Life Sciences community. Life Sciences involves vaccines, diagnostics, ventilators, PPE, and much more. Our team jumped into the fight on a Sunday afternoon with the energy and enthusiasm to make a difference. I am so proud that we were able to help healthcare workers as well as the community and very honored to receive this award".
Life Sciences Pennsylvania (LSPA) was founded in 1989 by two Penn State researchers and has grown to represent the entire life sciences industry.
