Michael IronsideRole: Chief Strategic Officer
From: Dundee, Scotland
Born and raised in the coastal city of Dundee in Scotland, I was fortunate enough to gain my qualifications and begin my career in my hometown.
Across the course of my career in the pharmaceutical industry, I have lived and worked in some incredible countries including Portugal, the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States of America. My family and I moved to New Zealand just eight months ago from New York (state) so that I could begin my role as NZP’s Chief Strategic Officer. So far, we are loving the warmer climate on offer in the Manawatu region in addition to the friendly, positive and inclusive outlook of the kiwi people and their attitude towards life. I have been truly impressed by the team at NZP. We may be a relatively small company in comparison to other pharmaceutical companies globally, but my initial impression is that NZP punches well above its weight through focussing on its core strengths and delivering on its promises to customers.
