Biotech family business grew out of local shedPublished: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 By: Scott Meacham Source: NewsOK
Sean and Scott Bauman, CEO and chief operating officer of biotechnology company IMMY, literally grew up in the family business.
“There isn’t a job that my brother and I haven’t done,” Sean said, “from sweeping the floor to putting together bulk mailings, whatever needed to be done, we’ve done. Our whole family was involved in the business.”
IMMY manufactures, markets and distributes innovative lines of diagnostic tests and reagents (substances used in chemical analysis). Stan Bauman, father of Scott and Sean, founded the company in 1979.
With a Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology, Stan was teaching at the University of Kentucky when his own father passed away. Stan decided to move back to Oklahoma to be closer to family (he grew up in Norman) and to start a business.
