At Two Labs, we value partnership. We work hard to make sure our clients view us as an extended part of their team, and not just another vendor. As the pharma market continues to evolve, we are excited to expand our team so that we can provide even more value to our clients as they navigate the path of bringing their products to market.
Two Labs welcomes Doug Troy to the team as our new Chief Operating Officer. As we continue to expand by acquiring new partners and elevating our current services, Doug’s expertise in scaling entrepreneurial companies will become essential to our continued success in providing unmatched client service. He will work to prepare Two Labs for future growth, while ensuring smooth integration with regard to Two Labs’ recent acquisitions.
“Bringing Doug on board is an intentional step towards maximizing our value and efficiency as a company,” said Rich Wartel, founder and CEO. “In his new position, he will be responsible for the growth and success of Two Labs as we continue to expand our suite of services.”
Doug comes to Two Labs after spending the last 12 years with Lake Capital, a $1.3 billion private equity firm based in Chicago, and its family of companies. He held multiple C-suite positions at Lake Capital’s companies, where he guided their operations and finances.
Doug earned his Bachelor of Science in accounting from Indiana University and an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management. In 2012, he won CFO of the year in the private company category in Los Angeles County.
Doug has extensive experience in private equity for portfolio companies, having worked both as a company executive and as an investor. He will bring this knowledge with him to help Two Labs bridge the gap between executive management and private investors, a role that Two Labs has never had before.
"Two Labs is doing great things,” said Doug. “I’m excited to contribute my skills in an operations capacity so that Rich, Howard and the rest of the leadership team can keep working with the entrepreneurial spirit that has made the company so successful. Two Labs is on a path of tremendous growth and I’m excited to join the team and do work that truly impacts the clients, the employees, the business and the operations.”
Doug is hitting the ground running in his new role, already upgrading back-office systems and creating a scalable platform for us as we continue to grow.
