Eddy Breed

Senior Consultant


Eddy is working at Progress-PME since the first of March.
After a Master in Biology (Leiden University) and a 2-year post-graduate program in Biotechnology (BODL), Eddy worked at the Upstream Process Development departments of Janssen Biologics (old Centocor) and Janssen Prevention and Vaccines (old Crucell). Here he executed roles of increasing complexity and responsibilities with the aim to develop, transfer and improve upstream manufacturing processes for monoclonal antibodies and vaccines. The last 2 years Eddy worked in the PER.C6 launch facility focused on building a large scale vaccine facility suitable for manufacturing of vaccines for clinical phase 3 and commercial launch. In this project he was responsible for purchasing, qualifying and implementing DSP and single-use equipment.   


In his spare time Eddy (1979) likes to spend time with his wife Anneke, family and friends. He is a fanatic skier, ice-skater and he likes to frequently visit the gym or cycle. At the top of his bucket list is skating the ”Elfstedentocht”.
