MedEngine warmly welcomes: Tero Sandberg

 

We are happy to announce that our Market Access Team is growing with yet another experienced professional!

Tero is a self-described curious, empathetic observer, who completes things.

At MedEngine Tero sure completes us with his experience: He has combined experience of 36 years (and counting!) in the pharma industry, in seven different companies overall, in roles like Country Manager, Market Access Lead, Marketing Director and Sales Manager, to mention a few. Among other things, Tero has specialized in hospital procurement of pharmaceuticals for the past fifteen years.

“I’ve been interested in healthcare and especially in the hospital sector since a young age”, he tells us. Although Tero’s first degree was bachelor’s in finance and accounting in the 1970’s, he soon pivoted and studied to be a specialized nurse in Anesthesiology and Operating Theater — and worked as the Head Nurse at Turku University Hospital during the 1980’s. At the dawn of the new millenia, Tero complemented his education, and studied to be a Leaders Coach in a Supervisor of Leaders and Executives program in Turku.

”The launch of new products has always been a cool thing for me. For example, in the 90’s I got involved in launching completely new concepts, like a glaucoma drug with a new mode of action.”

“The launch of new products has always been a cool thing for me. For example, in the 90’s I got involved in launching completely new concepts, like a glaucoma drug with a new mode of action. Or in the early 2000’s, with the launch of the whole concept of biosimilars as first line treatment — that was very cool and inspiring! At that time I was Country Manager and a member of the Nordic Executive Team in one of the leading biosimilar companies.”

“In this field where I’ve worked for a long time, MedEngine has managed to give me a whole new perspective. This job allows me to learn more about how different client organizations operate. I now have great colleagues from a wide variety of educational backgrounds!”

For some time Tero wanted to combine his educational background and early experience in housing marketing and sales, with his experience in hospitals. “In this field where I’ve worked for a long time, MedEngine has managed to give me a whole new perspective. This job allows me to learn more about how different client organizations operate. I now have great colleagues from a wide variety of educational backgrounds!”

Tero’s family includes his wife, an adult son and daughter and three grandchildren between 6–9 years of age. “I have a custom to annually do a one-week hiking trip with my son to Lapland in early fall. While traveling with my wife, we always try to look for the possibility of cross-country horseback riding.”

For the last five years Tero has acted as the commodore for Soukka Yacht Club in his free time. “The sea has always been an important element for me. We have a cottage in the Turku archipelago, with both a sailboat and a motor-powered one. In addition to sailing, I enjoy scuba diving and downhill skiing”, he sums.

We warmly welcome Tero as part of our growing team and look forward to the amazing things we’ll accomplish together!
