He brings a wealth of industry experience to the role and a passion for the work that we do to protect the integrity of medications during transit. With his penchant for relationship building, proven track record of commercial results, and interest in emerging digital technologies for a green supply chain, I am certain that Rick will be a strong contributor to our already impressive growth trajectory.”

Lozano said: “I am delighted to join a company with the passion, innovation and experience to make a true difference in the lives of patients. From the COVID vaccine to maintenance medications people take every day to feel their best, AeroSafe is committed to fortifying the cold chain so that no inferior product ever reaches a patient. With the maturing of personalized medicine, emergence of the digital supply chain and renewed focus on corporate ESG initiatives, there are countless applications for AeroSafe’s solutions which deliver benefits for the patient, the provider and the planet.”
