Dennis Walczewski
Denis is chief executive officer for MBL International where he has set the long term strategy and focus for MBL
International. This includes product acquisitions and the acquisition of Bion Enterprise, a company with a virology
diagnostic focus. Since joining MBL International, and under his leadership, the company has tripled its revenue
and the number of employees. The Boston Business Journal recently listed MBL International as one of the
largest science companies in the Boston area. Today MBL International is viewed by its parent company as the
leading business unit responsible for Global markets outside of Japan, Korea and China.
Before entering business, Dennis held positions for the US Department of Justice, and US Drug Enforcement
Administration as both a forensic chemist and special agent and may be Suffolk’s first forensic chemist. With his
science background he managed sales organizations on national levels in both the area of diagnostics and research
reagents. During his career he was worked closely with research and development teams and introduced project
management to Boehringer Mannheim (Roche). He was instrumental in changing the packaging of enzyme
products by Promega in which a design patent was issued.
Dennis earned his BS in Chemistry from Suffolk University College of Arts and Sciences and an MBA from
Indiana Wesleyan University.
