Jeff Lee comes to Proteintech with 28 years of experience in management and operational roles. At Thermo Fisher Scientific, he has served as Senior Director of Operations for the Clinical Diagnostic Division's Contract & OEM business unit, General Manager in the Immunoassay Systems SBS and Global Operations Director for Thermo Fisher’s Protein Biology business. Prior to joining Thermo Fisher, Jeff held a variety of operational roles at 3M Company including project engineer, manufacturing operations supervisor, manufacturing manager, and is a six-sigma black belt.

“Jeff Lee is an invaluable addition to Proteintech since his experience and knowledge in the market will enable Proteintech to better serve antibody-users globally,” says Proteintech CEO Jason Li. “His association with Pierce Protein Biotechnology has enabled him to have a wide knowledge of proteins. He knows the significance of the authentic glycosylated human protein and can help deliver Proteintech’s Humankine recombinant protein product line to the research, diagnostic and pharmaceutical markets.”

“I have a clear understanding and deep appreciation for Proteintech’s excellence in antibody and protein production, technical support and customer service,” says new Proteintech COO Jeff Lee. “Proteintech offers a quality and unique antibody to their customers due to its commitment to selling only products made by its own scientists, a unique feat in the current antibody landscape.”

Jeff has broad experience in manufacturing; international operations; project management; global supply chain; quality systems, including cGMP as an FDA-regulated manufacturer; and new product hand-off and scale-up. His previous role’s responsibility for the combined Thermo Fisher and legacy Life Technologies antibody-related business will help with the challenges in the integration of future acquisitions into Proteintech.
