About Joy Goudie

Joy Goudie is currently an independent board member at Daxor Corporation, following twelve- years as Senior Patent Counsel for Revlon leading cross-functional teams in the US and Spain. In addition, she served as Vice President managing Revlon’s global R&D portfolio and driving new technologies.

Joy Goudie is currently seeking an additional corporate board position while continuing in her current role. Her contribution will draw on her skills in business development through defensive IP and transactional negotiations as well as experience in bringing to market new technologies in the pharmaceutical, medical device, consumer products, beauty/cosmetic and healthcare industries.

Leading with her combination of technical expertise and business acumen Joy has provided valuation of intellectual property portfolios for M&A and joint ventures at Revlon. Her business experience focused on developing strategies using IP to drive business growth consistent with company culture at both Revlon and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. Key focus included leadership roles within industry leadership groups, R&D, manufacturing groups, process-formulation and marketing teams with regard to intellectual property law, licensing, social media, and other transactional matters.

Corporate responsibilities required regular travel to Spain to work with direct reports, R&D, and marketing groups. Management of a pharmaceutical patent portfolio required travel to Dubai and Egypt to meet with the minister of health and outside local counsel. International patent portfolio management required appearance in courts in The Hague.

A published scientist, Joy has worked with patients and R&D teams in the development of new antibiotics and small molecules for treatment of solid tumor cancers. Her research also included work in the areas of stroke and Parkinson’s disease.
