As a therapeutically focused business with a strong international presence, this company have been on an upward trajectory for a number of years, last year reporting revenues of €1.5 Billion +.
This company have made the strategic decision to diversify their product portfolio and move out of their core Therapeutic area of CNS. They have acquired a product from another major pharmaceutical company for the treatment of Gout and are looking to launch this product imminently. This product has already gained Regulatory Approval across Europe, so that's one big obstacle covered.
This position will be responsible for all of the European HEOR activity for this new product. This is a key position within the business as the success of this product will directly have an effect on the future strategy of this company.
