Thomas A. Tóth von Kiskér

“As the CEO of a mid-size pharmaceutical company, it is my responsibility to create a company that is competitive, resilient and innovative, allowing us to successfully navigate in a complex and constantly changing environment.

In order to achieve this, we rely on being able to acquire, develop and retain dedicated and highly-skilled professionals who work passionately together. We are doing this by offering our employees a climate of responsibility, accountability and respect and a climate where every employee has the opportunity to excel and develop their full potential.

One of my main tasks as CEO is to ensure that everyone knows their role and how they contribute to the success of the company. Together with our top management, we develop strategies and communicate these to our employees so that everyone understands the long term goal of the company.

With over 300 dedicated and committed employees in Switzerland and abroad, I am confident that we will be able to reach our goals step by step and meet the expectations of our stakeholders because… whatever we do… we do it with passion!”
