“The pharmaceutical industry represents for me a fast, demanding and stimulating world, one that is at the leading edge of technology, is diversified, and above all motivates people to want to leave their mark. I like working for a company and with colleagues who share the same values as me. Passion is for me a determining factor in my work environment: my greatest source of motivation is to know that every day, all our efforts are deployed in the common objective of the company, to facilitate access to drugs for Canadian patients.”
