"It is rewarding to work in the ever evolving Life Sciences industry and to be on the forefront of the various stages of research, development, and technology transfer."

Bill Sayles

Director of Life Sciences

Joined Columbia in 2017   

As Director of Life Sciences at Columbia, Bill is our in-house expert on the Life Sciences industry. With over 25 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, Bill’s extensive experience includes both business development and project management roles. With a firm grasp on the technological complexities of specialized building facilities and systems, Bill enjoys rolling up his sleeves and working side by-side with the project team to strategize and help solve problems. A strong collaborator and coach, Bill also works closely with the senior leadership staff to develop, implement and continually update Columbia’s strategic plan for our Life Science sector.

Outside of the office, Bill stays just as focused on his family as he does his work, affirming that his military background shapes his strong sense of commitment and discipline. A dedicated dad, on the weekends you may find Bill on the soccer field coaching his kids, in his garage fashioning a homemade Halloween costume, or just enjoying a day at the beach with his wife and their three children.
