John Maraganore wanted to become a biotech granddad after leaving Alnylam. With his new role at RTW, it looks like he got his wish
On his way out of Alnylam, outgoing CEO John Maraganore, who had led the biotech through thick and thin for 19 years, said late last year he wanted to advise new biotech companies in the grandfather phase of his career.
“It’s like a grandfather, right? You get the benefit of loving your grandchildren, but not having to take care of them all the time,” Maraganore said at the time. “I want to be a granddad.”
