Lau­rence Reid re­turns as CEO of Deci­bel Ther­a­peu­tics — as Steve Holtz­man re­tires

Two Oc­to­bers ago, Rev­o­lu­tion Med­i­cines bought Warp Dri­ve Bio and the com­pa­ny Lau­rence Reid built up for 3-plus years was gone. Reid, ever the 21st-cen­tu­ry busi­ness­man, went to LinkedIn and an­nounced his new po­si­tion: “Learn­ing to sail.”

Oth­er du­ties in­clud­ed “learn­ing to do good,” and “trav­el­ing.” The com­pa­ny – “none” – was based, like Reid, in Cam­bridge, MA.

“I think we all take our­selves a lit­tle too se­ri­ous­ly,” Reid told End­points News. “And I was lucky enough to have a few months off out­side biotech, and fo­cus on fam­i­ly and oth­er things.”
