If I can contribute to the production of safe medicines through more effective and better processes and, with that, help our customers to improve quality, then I am doing not only a good job but a fulfilling one, too.
What's your view on the industry?
"The increasing regulatory requirements combined with the trends in the industry from big blockbusters to smaller batches, and higher need for flexibility and multi-purpose facilities, makes this an interesting and important area of the pharmaceutical industry and the product life cycle.
The industry needs to work on process and performance improvements within the whole life cycle of products, with the ultimate aim to maintain or improve quality and reduce costs.""
Why do you work in this industry?
"These days, pharmaceutical companies face a lot of challenges from regulators all around the world who impose different requirements from industry and competitors. There are even challenges related to criminals, like counterfeiters who try to copy and steal their products. Being able to help and improve our industry’s ability to respond to these challenges is a key driver for me.
