Could you please introduce yourself and your background to our readership?

In my twenty years in the pharmaceutical industry, it was always important to me to work within the innovative segment of the industry. Being part of bringing innovative treatments to patients and being on top of science has been dear to me. During my career, I have worked for Sanofi in different positions and eventually also as director for some parts of NE and CEE region, I also worked for Merck for four years before assuming position for ALK Abello in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with the mandate to build up its operations here from scratch. The main reason why I took up this challenge was because ALK is the genuine leader in scientific knowledge and innovation capacities in its segment. The allergy immunotherapy is a real medical breakthrough in tremendously improving the quality of patients’ lives. Moreover, although we’re obviously aligning with global corporate values and guidelines, I have the chance to influence the establishment of the operations here and have significant impact which was really incentivizing for me. I do hope that ALK in the Czech Republic and Slovakia will benefit from my extensive experience and that I can successfully apply my learnings I gained throughout the years to our operations here.
