Motif Bio Plc (LON:MTFB, NASDAQ:MTFB) has appointed experienced financial professional Robert Dickey as its new chief financial officer (CFO).

The clinical stage biopharmaceutical company said Dickey had extensive experience in private and public healthcare companies.

Before joining Motif he was CFO at Tyme Technologies Inc, a US-listed company valued at around US$180mln.

Dickey will replace Pete Meyers, who is leaving Motif, though he will hang around to help with the hand-over to Dickey.

"I am delighted that Rob has agreed to join Motif Bio at this important time as we await data read-out in the second quarter of 2017 from REVIVE-1, our Phase 3 clinical trial in patients with ABSSSI (Acute Bacterial Skin and Skin Structure Infections),” said Graham Lumsden, chief executive officer of Motif.. 

“Rob's proven leadership and strategic skills will be a tremendous addition to the team. I am immensely grateful to Pete Meyers for his tireless dedication and hard work during 2016, culminating in a successful NASDAQ IPO and raise of $25 million. I wish him well in his future endeavours," he added.

“Robert is a strong addition to the Motif team, particularly due to his considerable experience in the biotech sector. Also, his NASDAQ experience will prove useful to the company given its recent dual-listing on the market,” suggested Vadim Alexandre, at Northland Capital Partners.
