LA JOLLA: DermTech Inc. (NASDAQ: DMTK) announced the addition of Adelle Walker to the organization as Vice President of Consumer Products.
Adelle Walker takes on this new role as DermTech further invests in bringing its precision genomics platform to the skin health and wellness categories.
Walker brings more than 20 years of experience to DermTech, having led category-defining products at Allergan in both Medical Dermatology and Aesthetics, SkinMedica, Candela Laser Systems and SENTÉ Labs. She has a proven track record in launching new products, building markets and using a data-driven and analytical approach to grow brands.
“Adelle is a tremendous addition to the DermTech team,” said Todd Wood, chief commercial officer of DermTech. “Her deep consumer and e-commerce expertise in skin care health and aesthetic categories will allow us to expand our technology to a consumer audience interested in understanding their skin health at the DNA level.”
DermTech has successfully launched its DermTech Melanoma Test, which uses Smart Stickers™ to assess suspicious moles for selected genomic markers associated with melanoma. The company is continuing to expand its revolutionary non-invasive skin genomics platform with the development of UV damage DNA risk assessment products to serve patients seeking better skin health.
“Consumers want more definitive information on the health of their skin so that they can more appropriately protect, correct and restore it,” said Walker. “With DermTech’s technology, consumers can have a clearer picture of what is happening at the DNA/RNA level, empowering them to make more proactive decisions both at home and in their dermatologists’ offices.”
