Emmes, a global, full-service Clinical Research Organization (CRO) dedicated to supporting the advancement of public health and biopharmaceutical innovation, today announced that Matt Bond has become its chief financial officer (CFO). 

Emmes Chief Executive Officer Peter Ronco said, “Matt combines a rich set of CFO experiences with a deep understanding of the biopharma and clinical technology solutions space. A seasoned executive with over 30 years of financial leadership experience, he has led the finance function for many successful, private-equity-backed companies in the pharmaceutical services and contract research market segment.” 

“This is a perfect time to join the company, as we continue to build our reputation with government and biopharma clients and ramp up our presence in new global markets,” noted Bond. “I’m able to hit the ground running, because I’ve worked in this sector for decades and have been successful in generating profitable growth while partnering with great management teams.” 

Before joining Emmes, Bond was the CFO of Bracket (now Signant Health), a leading technology provider to the drug development market. There, he led the organization through a period of sustained growth, including a successful sale of the company to another global, private-equitybacked firm. Before that, he was a founder and served as CFO of Aptiv Solutions, a technologyfocused CRO. Bond was part of the leadership team that grew the business from a startup to a large multinational organization through the acquisition of more than 10 companies. 

Previously, Bond was executive vice president and CFO of PRA, a global CRO, where he led a successful initial public offering. Earlier in his career, Matt was vice president of finance with Marriott International and a consultant with a leading, global financial consulting firm. He holds a B.S. degree from Wake Forest University.
