Our Patina Life Sciences Professionals serve pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, diagnostic, retail and specialty pharmacy, and life science-oriented private equity and venture capital companies in the following types of issues and situations:
These examples explain how we can help in a variety of situations:
A medical device manufacturer had undergone a QSR (Quality System Regulation) audit by the FDA. At the conclusion of the audit, the company was issued a Form 483 with major and minor observations. A seasoned Patina Professional with extensive regulatory compliance experience provided leadership to respond to the FDA and developed a plan to implement corrective actions.
A pharmaceutical company acquired a business that was a good strategic fit with one of the company’s business units, but the company did not know how to begin the process of integration. A Patina Professional developed the integration project plan, provided leadership to the team to facilitate integration, ensured timely task completion, escalated critical decisions to senior management, and completed the formal integration on time.
A large pharmaceutical company needed to consolidate manufacturing operations in order to deliver increased efficiency in plant utilization. A Patina Professional provided guidance to the team in assessing the manufacturing plant’s capabilities and capacity, determined a plant optimization plan, and developed a project plan and timeline for implementation.
A mid-sized generic pharmaceutical company was experiencing critical drug shortages due to competitors’ supply issues, which have been ongoing for more than a year. A Patina Professional completed a supply chain assessment and made recommendations for streamlining the process and building inventory for specific drug classes. Our professional assisted the client in implementing these changes and transitioned responsibility to the supply chain function.
When you need an experienced professional, or team of professionals, to execute and/or manage a special project or key initiative, you can trust Patina to provide the right solution. We match your needs with talented executives who have done it before.
When a key position must be filled on an interim basis, Patina has the proven resources to help. We’ll provide a highly experienced, precisely-matched professional to fill that role on a flexible basis — and we will act with the utmost urgency on your behalf. In some cases, these interim roles become interim-to-hire positions.
Patina can help you complete your management team by providing ongoing, part-time executives in key leadership functions where a full-time role is not needed or desired. This is a great way to have a well-rounded, world-class leadership team no matter the size of your company.
Our Patina Professionals give back by developing the high-potential leaders of the future. Many of our professionals enjoy spending a few hours a month by phone, email, Skype or in person meetings working to develop your up-and-coming talent. This is the most objective and confidential way to implement mentoring and coaching.
