Commercial Director- European Pharma Market


Without wanting to overplay the adjective “exciting”, we do have a genuinely exciting new role today! It’s a Commercial Director covering Europe which could develop into a Business Unit Director or BUD role across Europe in the future.

Our client is an established and growing global Services Integration business, specialized in ECMDocument ManagementManaged Services and Consulting for the Pharma and Lifesciences markets. They are experiencing strong growth, and plan to bring in a Commercial Director to join their Leadership Team to support the European growth.

  • strategy execution,
  • ensuring strong channel partner relationships,
  • assisting the EU delivery team
  • and working directly with the sales team.

You would report directly to the US Leadership, who to use a US sporting analogy would view you as the “European Quarterback” to ensure the European strategy is properly managed and executed, and thus enable the European business to grow in line with expectations. The role comes with a robust base salary well into six figures and additional bonus structure.

  • A Sales, Marketing or Commercial Leader, Senior BD Director or Senior Account Director with robust experience and knowledge of the European Pharma / Life Sciences market
