Business Development

As an interim manager and consultant with a background in natural sciences, I support pharmaceutical companies in business development & licensing and biotech / start-up companies in their partnering activities. In addition, I supplement teams of service providers and consultant companies in the life science space, contribute with external know-how, help to bridge vacancies and to implement projects in a timely manner.

I contribute with my experience and high social skills from > 15 yeas as a manager in different corporate cultures (from matrix to start-up) as well as 8 years as an independent interim manager, consultant, trainer and business coach.
