I had a wonderful opportunity to visit with Anton Krucky on Thursday, February 14 and tour his innovative cell therapy company—Tissue Genesis. He is the co-founder, president and chief executive of Tissue Genesis, which is located on Ala Moana Boulevard.

He invited me tour his company, which is a respected leader in regenerative medicine and leads the industry in clinical trial development. I enjoyed meeting Tissue Genesis’ employees and scientists and getting a close up look at their important work.

You may recall, Mr. Krucky was a UH commencement speaker recently. He has decades of management experience, including marketing, product development and sales at IBM. Mr. Krucky serves on the boards of several major corporations in Hawaiʻi, as well as several non-profit medical and healthcare boards including the University of Hawaiʻi’s John A. Burns School of Medicine.
