Christian Neckermann is a business leader with over 25 years of experience in the international healthcare industry, focusing on portfolio optimization, launching innovative products & services, building brands, driving sales growth, and developing lasting customer relationships.
His consulting work for global pharmaceutical companies as well as smaller biotechs and start-up ventures has covered over 40 countries and numerous therapeutic areas, including specialty / hospital diseases and GP-treated conditions. He has taken on interim management roles, most recently to support the post-merger integration of the portfolio management functions at Pfizer/GSK’s consumer health business.
Whether a $10mm opportunity or a multi-billion dollar business, his passion for seeking new insights in small and big data combined with first hand research into understanding customer needs, has helped him identify business opportunities and successfully define strategies to capture profitable growth for brands and businesses across all stages of their life-cycle —from product development, through launch, to optimizing mature product portfolios.
Christian enjoys working across functional and geographic boundaries, bringing together diverse perspectives and defining a path forward that achieves cross-functional collaboration towards a shared objective. He likes rolling up his sleeves and working in a team of people dedicated to finding new and better ways to achieve a shared vision, unconstrained by conventional practices. Together with his clients, he has launched new initiatives, built blockbuster products, turned around failing businesses, and improved the lives of uncountable patients and their families.
