Veteran Biotech Communications Execs Launch Opus Biotech Communications, New PR/IR Services for Emerging Biotech and Life Sciences Companies

SEATTLE–October 12, 2016 –Two experienced executives, a former Biotechnology Industry Organization Vice President of Communications and a former President of Georgia Bio, announced the formation of Opus Biotech Communications ( with offices in Seattle and Atlanta. Opus Biotech will offer reputation management, strategic public relations and investor relations services geared toward early-stage companies as well as communication audits and programs for established companies.

“They must prove now not only that their science works, but also convince a price sensitive health care system to adopt it.”

“Start-up companies are focused on advancing their research,” said Opus Biotech cofounder Dan Eramian, “but unless they can compellingly articulate the value of their unique stories to investors early on, they risk leaving their technology in the lab.”

Eramian and cofounder Charles Craig have a combined four decades experience in public relations, investor relations, government affairs and reputation building.

“Start-up companies live in a highly competitive environment,” said Craig. “They must prove now not only that their science works, but also convince a price sensitive health care system to adopt it.”

Eramian served as the first vice president of communications for the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) during the industry’s transformation from fascinating science to global health care innovator. He has managed challenging communications and investor relations at public and private biotech companies and served on their management boards. Eramian was also chief spokesman for two national federal agencies, the Department of Justice and the Small Business Administration.

Craig has been on the front lines of the biotech revolution as president of Georgia Bio and as a writer, editor and communicator for the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), BioWorld Today and annual Ernst & Young Global Biotechnology Report. During his 30-year career, he also worked as a writer and editor for mainstream newspapers, magazines, and television news.
