National Sales Manager
Cham, Switzerland
13 Years

I worked for a number of companies in the pharmaceutical industry before joining Mallinckrodt. During that time my roles varied a lot – I started out as a Product Manager for surgical sutures and then my responsibilities changed completely when I was made a Logistics Manager. As a result, I’ve learned to be very open to change. Now I’m looking forward to embracing fresh challenges in the new Mallinckrodt. As a relatively small organization, it’s flexible and agile enough to make the most of every opportunity. I’m going to enjoy being part of its rebirth as a stock-listed company with a bright future.

2013 - Present Current Position 

National Sales Manager

My new position as National Sales Manager is the highlight of my career to date. My colleagues are exceptional – to me they’re the best thing about working for Mallinckrodt – and I love my customers. They motivate me to do the best job I possibly can. I’m eager to play my part in expanding the Mallinckrodt business into Europe and repaying the trust that the company has placed in me.

2010 - 2013Previous Position 

Account and Product Manager

As well as building business, I’d built great relationships with many of our customers in my previous role. So I was delighted when Mallinckrodt gave me greater responsibility for them by putting me in charge of Radiopharmaceuticals and all the Nuclear Medicine accounts in Switzerland.

2005 - 2010Previous Position 

Product Specialist

I was working as a Customer Service and Logistics Manager for a Covidien company when it centralized the Logistics function and eliminated my position. That was when I found myself taking on one of the toughest challenges of my career. As a newly-appointed Product Specialist in Mallinckrodt’s Nuclear Medicine division, I was in unfamiliar territory and in charge of an unknown product. However, I had a very experienced manager who taught me a great deal about this complex area and I learned fast.

1988 - 2005Previous Position 

Product, customer service and logistics management

My early career was packed with variety. I worked for a number of companies that were owned or acquired by Mallinckrodt’s former parent company, Covidien, and my roles differed a lot. I started out as a Product Manager for Surgical Sutures in American Cynamid, part of which was bought by Covidien. Then my responsibilities changed completely when I was made a Logistics Manager at AHP, another company Covidien bought a division of. And later I became Customer Service and Logistics Manager at Kendall, wholly owned by Covidien. As a result, I learnt to be very open to change.
