Neurotrope (formerly BlueFlash Communications), a Nevada-based company, has hired Robert Weinstein to be its executive vice president and chief financial officer. Weinstein had been the acting chief financial officer, as a consultant, since May and was instrumental in executing the company's private financings and reverse merger, which both closed in August.
Previously, Weinstein was a financial and accounting consultant to several healthcare companies in the pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology industries. Prior to his consulting roles, Weinstein was the chief financial officer of three publicly traded companies, consistently increasing shareholder value through an active role in investor relations while partnering with senior management to provide strategic guidance and leading all securities and exchange commission filing compliance. Weinstein also was a founding partner in a healthcare-oriented private equity fund and an investment banker focused on micro-cap company financings and mergers and acquisitions.
