Kasper joined AGC Biologics in 2006 as a Scientist at the Copenhagen facility and has held the positions
of Principal Scientist (2007) and Department Manager (2008) within Process Development. Beginning in
2010, Kasper led the Upstream Process Development teams and in 2011, he led process characterization
and validation activities. In 2013 - 2014, Kasper was appointed Vice President of Process Development
and in 2014 – 2017, Kasper was appointed Vice President of Manufacturing. Mr. Møller has most recently
served as the site head for AGC Biologics’ Copenhagen facility and his role was expanded to include
oversight of the Heidelberg, Germany site as well as Global Supply Chain Management and Global IT.


AGC Biologics Chief Executive Officer Patricio Massera stated, “As I stepped into my role as CEO, one of
my priorities was to ensure that we continue to have a strong Executive Team, committed and capable of
leading us through the next phase of our growth and success. Last month, I shared that Kasper Møller
would expand his role to oversee both Copenhagen and Heidelberg sites, Global Supply Chain
Management and Global IT. In his new role as Chief Technical Officer, Kasper will expand his scope even
further to oversee all of our sites, Bothell (Seattle), Berkeley, Copenhagen, Heidelberg and Chiba, with all
Site Heads/ General Managers across the regions reporting directly to him.”


Massera added, “Kasper has a deep understanding of our business after spending over 12 years at AGC
Biologics in various roles. Prior to his role being expanded last month, he was the Site Head for
Copenhagen and previously held VP roles in Manufacturing and Process Development. I look forward to
his contributions more broadly as a new member of our Executive Team.”
