Jeff Hawkins Is Appointed CEO of Quantum-Si – Effective October 10, 2022

Veteran Life Sciences Executive to Oversee Commercial Launch of Next-Generation Single-Molecule Protein Sequencing Platform

Jeff Hawkins will succeed Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, Founder and Executive Chairman of Quantum-Si, who has also been serving as Interim Chief Executive Officer, and lead the next phase of growth as the Company prepares to launch the Platinum™ instrument, which will be the industry’s first system to enable next generation, single-molecule protein sequencing.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Jeff to Quantum-Si. He is a proven business leader and life sciences inventor with decades of experience driving commercial excellence and execution in both early-stage and mature companies,” said Dr. Rothberg. “Jeff was instrumental in identifying key market segments and scaling next generation DNA sequencing at Illumina, making him an ideal CEO to leverage this experience at Quantum-Si with next-generation protein sequencing.”

Mr. Hawkins brings over 20 years of experience at the world’s leading life science and diagnostics companies as an accomplished business leader and inventor. Prior to Quantum-Si, he was President and Chief Executive Officer of Truvian Sciences, Inc. where he led the evolution of the company’s benchtop blood testing system from a product concept through technology feasibility and into late-stage development.

Prior to Truvian, Mr. Hawkins led the Reproductive and Genetic Health Business Unit at Illumina, Inc., where he oversaw the rapid global growth of next-generation sequencing into new and emerging markets. During his Illumina tenure, the business unit more than doubled in revenue and established clear market leadership across every major product line and geographic region.

Before Illumina, Mr. Hawkins held roles of increasing responsibility across multiple functional areas for GenMark, Hologic, Third Wave Technologies and Abbott Laboratories.

“I am excited to be joining this dynamic company that is on the cusp of revolutionizing next-generation protein sequencing,” said Hawkins. “Quantum-Si’s technology has the ability to make the power of single-molecule protein sequencing affordable and readily available, and I am looking forward to leading this exceptional team as we advance the launch of our revolutionary system, and work to make it an indispensable tool for life sciences research.”

Jeff Hawkins holds a B.A. in Chemistry with honors from Concordia University and an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management. He is co-inventor on 10 issued or pending patents spanning consumables, instrumentation, optics, manufacturing methods and designs.
