I am a strategist focused on relationship marketing and promoting innovation in the biopharmaceutical industry. Prior to joining SAS, I was managing my own consulting practice focused on commercial life sciences. My background also includes leading multiple large pharma client engagements for leading database marketing service provider. I have completed a Six Sigma Belt with Johnson & Johnson Consumer Products Companies while directing the implementation of new technologies into their customer care centers and managing the execution of CRM programs. My experience also extends overseas to AsiaPacific where I worked in the telecommunications industry leading CRM technology enablement for call centers across multiple countries.
