Ms. Forstnaric previously worked at a variety of consulting firms, including Odgers Berndtson and Heidrick & Struggles, where she was a partner. Dr. Draeger has been named a senior consultant in Switzerland. He has over 20 years of experience in healthcare including working for big pharma, biotech and medical devices firms in research, business development and fund management capacities. He previously worked with Roche and Recordati, before heading the biotech sales-side research group at the French finance group Credit Agricole Indosuez Cheuvreux. “We have, for this year, over-achieved budget, and are proving profitable. That's why we have the power to invest in new hires, and that's why we're also looking for more people in addition to those we have already recruited,” said Kristian Juergensen, head of DACH and managing director, RSA Germany. “We recognize that companies want to work more with specialists, not with generalists. They are impressed by a niche player like RSA, which is family owned, and which approaches the market as a team player.”
