Fabrice Chouraqui, Cellarity CEO-partner (LinkedIn)

Drug de­vel­op­er, Big Phar­ma com­mer­cial ex­ec, now an up­start biotech chief — Fab­rice Chouraqui is ready to try some­thing new as a ‘CEO-part­ner’ at Flag­ship

Fab­rice Chouraqui’s ca­reer has tak­en some big twists along his life jour­ney. He got his Phar­mD at Uni­ver­sité Paris Descartes and jumped in­to the drug de­vel­op­ment game for a bit. Then he took a sharp turn and went back to school to get his MBA at In­sead be­fore re­turn­ing to phar­ma on the com­mer­cial side.

Twen­ty years lat­er, af­ter steadi­ly ris­ing through the ranks and jour­ney­ing the globe to nab a top job as pres­i­dent of US phar­ma for the Basel-based No­var­tis, Chouraqui ex­it­ed in an­oth­er ca­reer switch. And now he’s head­ed in­to a hy­brid po­si­tion as a CEO-part­ner at Flag­ship, where he’ll take a shot at lead­ing Cel­lar­i­ty — one of the VC’s lat­est par­a­digm-chang­ing com­pa­nies of the ground­break­ing mod­el that as­pires to de­liv­er a new plat­form to the world of drug R&D.
