THE FARMAVET GROUP - Top Quality Assurance Team
It is the professionals who determine the greatness of a business. That is the motto guiding the Farmavet Group in its laborious process of optimizing the business model. Thus, over the past year, big names from the pharmaceutical industry have joined the Group, complementing the strong top management team, whose members are passionate and have a combined expertise which is hard to match, at least in Romania. One of the objectives of the new team is to support the efforts made by the Farmavet Group to remain an industry benchmark, recognized for the quality of its products and services, but also for the standards of excellence it imposes on the industry and to do so through know-how and plenty of expertise. Throughout this process, the functions of Quality Assurance, Regulatory Affairs, and veterinary medicinal product and vaccine production play a key role.
We invite you to meet some of the professionals in these business areas, and to learn their role within the Farmavet Group from each of them, as well as their responsibilities and business plans for this year.
