John Orwin, SVP, Sales and Marketing, BioOncology, Genentech

Orwin learned the landscape of onoclogy while working as senior director of oncology marketing at Alza, and then eventually as the franchise VP at J&J's Tibotec division. In 2005, he headed out to Cali to join Genentech, and was promoted the same year to head sales and marketing of its BioOncology division. And it's a good thing: Orwin was part of the commercial genius that built such heavyweights as Avastin, Herceptin, and Rituxan.
