Manhattan, NY, Jan. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Healixa, Inc. (OTC Pink: EMOR) (“Healixa”, or the “Company”), a technology company focusing on building and acquiring innovative and disruptive technologies in the health-tech, clean water, and green-tech industries, today announces that Christopher Galliano will join its Board of Directors (the “Board”) as a non-executive independent Director effective immediately, demonstrating the Company’s focus on corporate governance, growth and national list requirements.
Mr. Galliano has extensive experience in directing large scale defense-related projects including rapid prototyping for emergent requirements, software engineering and modernization, legacy system transformation, and system-of systems engineering. Mr. Galliano currently serves as Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of Skymount Medical, where he co-authored over 6 patents in artificial intelligence (“AI”) based drug discovery and leads the day to day research to construct an oral therapeutic for COVID-19 and 12 other active inventions/pharmaceutical developments.
Mr. Galliano’s previous accomplishments and projects include architecting NATO IT modernization (“ITM”) efforts, NATO’s largest IT acquisition in its history and the Department of the Navy Enterprise Data Center (“NEDC”) and subsequent consolidation from over 100 data centers to 3 enterprise data centers.
