BioFlyte Appoints Clark Griffin as Vice President of Engineering

Griffin brings over 40 years of product development experience from the defense and automotive industries to guide BioFlyte’s engineering and new product development efforts

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — BioFlyte, a bioaerosol surveillance firm with a disruptive new class of fieldable biological threat collection, detection, and identification solutions, today announced the appointment of Richard C. (Clark) Griffin as Vice President of Engineering. In this role, Griffin will lead BioFlyte’s engineering group, executing full lifecycle product development and commercializing its groundbreaking bioaerosol surveillance solutions.

Griffin has over four decades of experience in all aspects of product development – from concept, technical requirements and design to integration, testing and production. He has a proven track record of successfully launching products into the automotive and defense markets and a methodical approach to engineering teams that improves outcomes. Griffin comes to BioFlyte from The Boeing Company where he led systems engineering efforts for multiple laser development programs.

Prior to Boeing, Griffin spent 15 years with Raytheon, a portion of which was recently acquired by The Vertex Company. Most recently, he served as a Program Chief Engineer/Associate Director of Systems Engineering. In that role, he was responsible for leading a cross functional team in the development, integration, and test of a vehicle upgrade package, including fire control, power distribution and all electrical subsystems. Earlier in his career he held systems engineering and technical lead roles at Delphi and Delco Electronics. Griffin also holds five patents.

“Clark brings a wealth of industry experience and engineering leadership to our growing team and business. He is well-positioned to drive our engineering efforts, including key next generation programs and new product development workstreams,” said Todd Sickles, CEO of BioFlyte. “I am excited to welcome him to the management team. He brings both the enthusiasm and expertise to help BioFlyte reach its technical and commercialization milestones at this critical juncture for the company.”
