In their own words
“It is impossible to separate strategy from execution. As a leader, you need to be able to set aside time to develop a compelling vision and differentiating strategy based on true insights with your team. Next, you need to operationalize it and drive execution to achieve superior and measurable outcomes. That’s where you see the difference between a good and a great company—and why Global Marketing & Commercial Operations is the place to be! With so many exciting product launches ahead, we need people with a global mindset, the ability to co-create great strategies and the drive to ensure they are translated into great results.”
