Irving Healthcare Innovator Biote Corp. Adds Board Member After Going Public in May

Debby Morris brings more than three decades of experience in directing financial operations and strategy to support high-growth companies. Biote went public in May through a SPAC deal.

Irving-based Biote Corp. an innovator in preventive healthcare through the delivery of personalized hormone therapy, announced Debby Morris has been appointed to its board of directors, bringing more than three decades of experience in directing financial operations and strategy to support high-growth companies.

Biote went public in May through a SPAC deal.

Morris served as the executive vice president and chief financial officer of Apria Inc. from March 2013 through October. Before that, she was chief financial officer-Americas for Sitel Worldwide Corp. from February 2010 to February 2013.

Terry Weber, CEO of Biote

“Debby is an accomplished executive whose deep financial and business expertise—spanning accounting and finance, SEC reporting, internal audit, data analytics, corporate development, and operations—will complement and strengthen our Board. We expect that Debby’s contributions and perspective will prove valuable as Biote continues to execute on our growth strategy,” CEO Terry Weber said in a statement.

Earlier this year, Weber said that Biote has focused on transforming the large and often-overlooked hormone optimization market since the company’s founding. “My generation of women, we suffered silently. We didn’t know who to turn to. Certainly you would never talk about menopause in the workplace. You barely talk about it to your family. You just had a stiff upper lip and got through it,” she said in a Bloomberg story.

Weber adds financial and business experience

Previously, Weber was a partner of Tatum LLC from 2004 to 2010 and as a director from 2008 to 2010. Morris provided interim and permanent chief financial officer services for companies contracted with Tatum LLC including LifeMasters Supported SelfCare and RelaDyne.

Morris serves as a director for Alternative Logistics Technologies, Holdco, LLC, and serves as the chair of the audit committee. She also serves as a director for Rexford Industrial and serves on the audit, compensation, and nomination, and governance committees.
