Goins will lead Catalant's legal function as it supports the company's engagement of clients, manages corporate governance and provides counsel on various business matters as the company continues to scale.
"We are incredibly excited for Melanie to join our leadership team – she is a dynamic business talent with the key background of helping grow a company from early scale to publicly traded. Her experience at a pillar Boston-area company positions her well to help lead our next phase of growth," said Rob Biederman, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Catalant.
