Her appointment supports our governance principles and continues to ensure that the Board has the right mix of skills, diversity and independence. An accomplished leader with a strong track record in commercialisation and building large-scale businesses in the radiopharmaceutical sector, Tiffany’s deep operational understanding of radiopharmaceutical manufacturing, distribution networks and customers will be invaluable as Telix rolls out its first commercial product.”

Ms. Olson added, “I am delighted to join the Board of Telix at this exciting phase in the Company’s journey.
