Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, the leading developer of spider silk based fibres, has selected Anurag Gupta for its expanded board of directors. The addition of Gupta to the board will expand overall skillset, perspective and experience necessary to support and drive growth for all of the company’s stakeholders. Gupta’s term will begin during fourth quarter.

Gupta will serve on the audit committee and compensation committees for the duration of his time as a director, said Kraig Labs in a press release.

Gupta had earlier served as CEO of Global Data Services for TBG; president for Europe, Middle East, and Africa region for BrightPoint, and executive vice president of CMS Division at IHS Markit. Gupta currently serves as an independent director on boards of Roseburg Forest Products and Drive My Way.

“We are pleased to welcome Gupta as the first, of several, new independent directors to be joining the Kraig Lab’s board,” said chairman and CEO, Kim Thompson. "Gupta’s background and experience in corporate management, technology development, international operations, and investor relations will be an asset to the company as we continue to grow." 

“I am excited about joining the board of Kraig Labs and look forward to working alongside our founder and CEO, Kim Thompson and my fellow board members,” said Gupta. “It is exciting to be a part of an innovative biotechnology company that is doing amazing work towards the development and commercialisation of spider silk technology.” (PC)
