Doshi to chair New Jersey innovation commission.

Byline: Jessica Perry

InRhythm Founder and Chief Executive Officer Gunjan Doshi was named chair of the state's Commission on Science, Innovation and Technology on Wednesday afternoon.

Doshi had previously been named a member of the group reestablished by Gov. Phil Murphy and the Legislature in August of last year. The Commission is charged with exploring partnerships between the private sector and the state's public and private research institutions.

"This committee will be crucial to creating an innovation economy in New Jersey," Murphy said in a release announcing Doshi's appointment. "With over 20 years of experience in technology consulting, Gunjan is the perfect person to lead its efforts."

The Commission was originally created in 1985 before becoming defunct in 2010.

"I believe in the incredible potential we have here in New Jersey, from innovative companies to leading universities and the generations of innovators poised to make great things happen," Doshi said in a release. "Bringing leaders from the business, higher education, and government sectors to tackle challenges and opportunities is the right decision for our future."

BioNJ President and CEO Debra Hart; New Jersey's first Chief Innovation Officer Beth Noveck; and Gibbons PC Co-Chair, Government & Regulatory Affairs David Pascrell are among those previously named to the 17-member committee which also includes the Secretary of Higher Education, the Commissioner of Education, and the CEO of the New Jersey Economic Authority. Those positions are currently held by Zakiya Smith Ellis, Lamont Repollet and Tim Sullivan, respectively.

InRhythm is a New York-based software design and consulting firm with a focus on digital products. A resident of Clifton, Doshi also sits on the boards of several companies including Booker.com and Yodle Inc., the governor's office said.
