Ian RansomeHead of Product Management, ambr systems at Sartorius Stedim Biotech
Ian Ransome is Head of Product Management, ambr systems at Sartorius Stedim Biotech. Ian's education is in cell biology and biochemistry (University of York, UK); this was followed by clinical experience in the UK’s National Health Service and R&D experience with AstraZeneca. This grounding was followed by a variety of commercial roles at Tecan, which led to European and North American responsibilities for TAP Biosystems. Once the US business had established a suitable degree of autonomy, Ian developed a network of distributors across Asia and drove the expansion of the ambr business there. Following the acquisition of TAP by Sartorius in 2013, Ian led the commercial integration of the ambr products into the Sartorius organisation. He then managed and developed a team of application specialists with responsibility for the whole fermentation technologies portfolio, and now leads the group defining the future global direction of the ambr portfolio.
