being graduated in Analytical Chemistry i kicked off my Career working 24/7 in total's refinery in antwerp. though janssen pharmaceutica got my attention and being a social and caring person i was convinced pharmaceutical industries was a better place to invest in a better world. i got the opportunity to take the lead in a Lab Automation project and to initiate the first steps in computerized system Validation methodology within j&j. as a result pharma quality and Qualification & Validation became the red thread through all the years. because of global changes within the Pharmaceutical Industry landscape i decided to jump in the late 00's. change creates opportunity, isn't it? i was offered the challenge by waters to take ownership over Informatics solutions Selling in the benelux. a fantastic new world i was entering and a great place to work. i learned to think like a fish, listen to business and offer customers the solution they need rather than just offering what is asked. having experienced that 'Sales for Sales' does not inspire me, i moved back closer into pharmaceutical business. so i took up a role as Senior Consultant in the deployment of logistical it systems in janssen's european distribution center. today i am working as a senior solution manager within altran's life science division co-creating in the transition & transformation that altran is implementing as part of its strategic plan 'ignition 2020'. my previous expertises in pharma quality & Compliance, Lab Automation, people management, Project Management, consultancy, account management, Business Development, etc. glue nicely together and are a guarantee for daily fun and success. # white blackbird # pharma quality & Compliance # Lab Automation # people management # Project Management # consultancy # account management # Business Development # managed services # insights blue(red) # mb-istj # inspirer # believer # creator # no routine # lean green belt # together # email@example.com
