Sanne Lindhardt

Director, Conceptual Design

What's your view on the industry?

"The pharmaceutical industry is changing and characterised by less predictability, shorter time horizons and frequent changes. Manufacturers need to have a robust basis for decisions when the first steps are taken in new project plans. A good front-end design is crucial to identify and assess major risks, make related mitigation plans, identify uncertainties and provide realisable solutions.”

Why do you work in this business?

"It is an honour to work in an industry that strives to improve the life of patients around the world and extremely motivating to be a part of a company that meets our customers’ challenges with profound professional experience and respect.

Working in front-end where we offer the very first counselling, inspiration and challenge to our customers is a privilege that calls for a holistic and analytical approach combined with a structured mind and an urge to add value. I enjoy the nature of my job and consider it a great responsibility to act as leader and developer of experts in this field."
