What’s your title/role at BrightInsight?

I’m a Product Strategy and Growth Lead. I help define what products and solutions we build using the BI platform, as well as feed customer input back into our platform. I specifically focus on one of BI’s largest pharma accounts, where I work with our Global Account Director on offerings development and content throughout the pre-sales and sales process

Can you share a bit of background on yourself?

Grew up in Romania, lived and studied in four countries (Romania, Norway, UK, US). I trained as an economist and wanted to become an academic – I dropped out of my Economics PhD at Northwestern halfway through! Then got into healthcare consulting at ZS, where I was a project manager and part of the European Medtech and Digital Health practices.

I’ve worked with quite a few of the top 20 medtech and pharma companies globally on product and commercial strategies for health tech and medical devices. Cool projects I did: finding a start-up partner for remote-assisted surgical procedures for a top 3 global medtech so procedures could continue during the pandemic lockdowns; evaluating and defining the product concept for clinical algorithms in oncology for the world’s largest diagnostic company, one of which was taken up in China

What is your favorite food?

Medium rare steak, fries, wilted spinach

Where is your favorite place on earth?

Norway. Almost settled there, but decided to explore big city living some more. But I’m still having that debate with myself 😊

Which of BrightInsight’s Values most resonates with you and why?

Passion, as I exhibit that naturally (sometimes a bit too much) and I therefore enjoy being surrounded by people who do the same

What is your favorite part about working at BrightInsight?

I am passionate about digital health and BrightInsight has an incredible reputation in the space, so my favorite part is the ability to speak to senior digital health and innovation leaders in life sciences who will have already heard of BrightInsight and want to engage with us

What are your hobbies outside of work?

I am a massive art buff and probably know about all the art exhibitions happening in London at any given time. I have particular tastes and favorite artists, and have even travelled around the world for some of them. One of my art goals is to see all the Monet paintings on public display – so far I’ve seen them in London, Paris, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Chicago
