Joaquín B. Viso is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Grupo VL, LLC and Chairman of the Board of Directors of GVL Holdings, LLC and MC-21 Corporation, firms dedicated to provide pharmacy benefits management services to health insurance providers and to other healthcare related activities in Puerto Rico and internationally. From 2005 until March 2014, Viso was a member of the Board of Directors of Patheon Inc., a multinational firm that manufactures prescription drugs for pharmaceutical companies under contract manufacturing and joint venture agreements. Patheon Inc. acquired MOVA Pharmaceutical Corporation, a company founded in 1986 by Viso, in December 2004. Until November 1986, Viso was President and General Manager of SmithKline (now Glaxo SmithKline) operations in Puerto Rico.
Having accumulated seventeen years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry in Puerto Rico, Joaquín Viso founded MOVA in 1986, determined to demonstrate that a company based on local talent and capital could well compete in the global market. MOVA began operations by the end of 1987 and, when sold to Patheon Inc., successfully operated three manufacturing sites in Puerto Rico with more than 1,600 employees.
Viso served on the Board of Directors of the Government Development Bank for Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico Governor’s Strategic Advisory Council, the Boards of Corporation for Technological Transformation, Genomas, Inc., Scotiabank of Puerto Rico, the Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association, the Universidad Central del Caribe, United Way of Puerto Rico, the American Red Cross, and the Advisory Board of Banco Popular de Puerto Rico.
In 1999, Viso was named «Businessman of the Year» at the national level by the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. He was also awarded the Distinguished Award by the International Center of New York. Viso received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Puerto Rico and a M.S. in Engineering from the University of Michigan.
