Tevogen Bio appoints global safety management expert to corporate advisory board

Warren-based Tevogen Bio on Wednesday announced it appointed Victor Sordillo to its corporate advisory board. Sordillo’s appointment contributes to the diversity of thought leadership within the company’s executive team by way of expertise in leadership, risk management and finance, as well as his previous roles on boards of various charitable organizations such as the American Red Cross and United Way.

The late-stage clinical biotechnology company, which specializes in the development of cell and gene therapies in oncology, neurology and virology, said Sordillo’s 35 years of experience in risk engineering will allow it to continue to pioneer the next era of medical innovation.

Sordillo currently serves as an executive vice president at Sompo International, leading a global team of experienced risk control professionals that specializes in residential, commercial and industrial accounts.

He previously was the senior vice president of risk solutions for QBE North America, as well as the global technical services manager for Chubb.

Previously, Sordillo served on the boards of directors of charitable organizations such as United Way and the American Red Cross. In 2019, he was honored by the American Society of Safety Professionals with a lifetime achievement of 40 years of dedication to safety.

“I am thrilled to be joining Tevogen Bio as a member of its corporate advisory board,” Sordillo said. “It’s an honor to have the opportunity to provide insight and leadership alongside other members of the board, and I look forward to contributing to Tevogen’s patient-centric mission to develop convenient and affordable immunotherapies for large patient populations while continuing the expansion of the company’s novel and disruptive biotech business model, which integrates affordability with business sustainability.”

In addition to holding senior global leadership positions at two major international insurance organizations, Sordillo has provided his expertise to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. He has been a guest speaker at many different venues, including the American Society of Civil Engineers, AICPA CFO’s annual meeting and the ASSP seminar program. Sordillo has been serving as the mayor of Warren for more than 22 years. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Tufts University, and his MBA in international business from the University of Massachusetts-Lowell.
