Maya A. Wank, Managing Partner
Maya Wank is in her third career, having previously spent ten years each in educating severely handicapped individuals, and another ten years in Big Pharma, including executive positions at American Home Products/ Wyeth, Lederle Laboratories, Dey Laboratories, and Connetics. In the last fifteen years, she has been the President of Resolutions4You, LLC, specializing in commercialization development, implementation and management by working with owners of start-up, privately held companies. She attended the University of Wisconsin, where she graduated with a Master’s degree in Administration.
Maya has been directly involved in all aspects of acquisition and exit planning, from procurement and due diligence to strategic development and infrastructure advancement. She is skilled at market evaluation and has represented owner and corporate interests for capital development and investor relations in arenas as diverse as pharmaceutical and biotech to web based businesses and strategies.
Maya’s ability to organize projects, while sourcing and overseeing necessary and sometimes diverse resources, has gained her a reputation for the ability to acquire and rationalize significant amounts of technical and financial information and changing conditions. Over time, she has gravitated to specializing in the needs of privately held small businesses, and as such is an asset to negotiations and due diligence processes. Maya brings to PCA a personal passion for pharmacy (her grandfather started Wisconsin Pharmaceuticals in his basement and made deliveries from the family station wagon), and particularly community based, locale initiatives. This background means Maya successfully assists both sellers and buyers, which is a strength in the decision making process.
