08/13/2020 | 08:32am EST

Wilco Groenhuysen appointed to an expanded Chief Operating Officer role

Ashley Cordova promoted to Chief Financial Officer

Frank Leonard promoted to Chief Development Officer

Novocure (NASDAQ:NVCR) today announced an expansion of its Executive Leadership Team, effective Sept. 1, 2020, intended to further solidify executive leadership in preparation for an anticipated period of significant innovation and growth and to recognize the proven senior management experience of key Novocure leaders.

After eight years of service as Chief Financial Officer, Wilco Groenhuysen has been appointed to an expanded Chief Operating Officer role responsible for the general and administrative management of the company. He will also assume responsibility for the strategic and operational leadership of Novocure’s supply chain, warehousing and distribution, quality assurance and information technology operations. Mr. Groenhuysen is tasked to ensure organizational readiness in anticipation of the completion of four Phase 3 clinical trials over the next few years.

Ashley Cordova has been promoted to Chief Financial Officer and will assume responsibility for the oversight of Novocure’s global financial operations, including financial reporting, financial planning and analysis, treasury, tax, and investor relations. In her new role, Ms. Cordova will report directly to Asaf Danziger, Novocure’s CEO.

With more than 15 years of experience in financial operations, Ms. Cordova has played a key role in leading multiple financial functions for Novocure with increasing responsibilities since she joined as Director of Global Treasury in 2014. Most recently, she served as Senior Vice President with responsibility for financial planning and analysis, treasury, investor relations and corporate communications. Prior to joining Novocure, Ms. Cordova served in various financial roles at Pfizer and Zoetis. Ms. Cordova graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Music and Business from Furman University, and earned her international MBA from the University of South Carolina.

Frank Leonard has been promoted to Chief Development Officer, a newly created executive role with responsibility for engineering, product development, business development, and the overall strategic and operational leadership of Novocure’s innovation platforms. In his new role, Mr. Leonard will report directly to Mr. Danziger.

Mr. Leonard joined Novocure in 2010 to help prepare the company for the commercial launch of Optune®. In this role, he established Novocure’s health policy and business development groups, and additionally led various finance functions. Prior to joining Novocure, Mr. Leonard was a venture capital investor focused on high-impact medical technologies. Mr. Leonard holds an A.B. from Harvard and an M.A. from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

“Novocure’s track record of innovation and financial performance is a testament to the strength of our leaders and the focus and drive of all of our employees,” said William Doyle, Novocure’s Executive Chairman, and Mr. Danziger. “We are confident that Wilco’s expanded role and the addition of Ashley and Frank to the Executive Leadership Team places Novocure in the best possible position to prepare for the future.”

After 10 years of service as Chief Operating Officer and 14 years after signing on as Novocure’s first U.S. employee, Mike Ambrogi will transition to become Senior Technology Fellow. Mr. Ambrogi joined Novocure with a background in technology development. This newly created position allows Mr. Ambrogi the freedom to focus exclusively on the development of high-impact technologies to further Novocure’s mission.
