New Open Financial Posting - ABFO Member Company - Neurotech Pharmaceuticals

Neurotech Pharmaceuticals is an innovative biopharmaceutical company located in Cumberland, RI, within the realm of Greater Boston’s vast biotechnology landscape. Since our inception more than 20 years ago, we have been developing a proprietary biological drug device combination technology for treatment of a variety of retinal disorders.

The CFO will be a decisive, hands-on, strategic business partner with exceptional financial leadership and project management skills who will achieve the desired results through articulating a clear vision, cross-functional collaboration and effective influence with all levels of internal/external stakeholders.

Ultimately, we are seeking a sophisticated financial expert who will quickly build trust with and gain the respect of the company, leadership team, Board of Directors and other financial professionals with whom Neurotech partners.
