InnoMedica combines an experienced board of directors with the well-coordinated founding team as management, resulting in a powerful partnership with the requisite know-how to be able to successfully implement the upcoming projects.
InnoMedica’s goal is to foster an entrepreneurial spirit among its employees by involving the entire team as shareholders. Today the InnoMedica team consists of 51 employees - all with university degrees or many years of experience. InnoMedica’s strong technical focus is reflected in the 37 employees with degrees in biochemistry, chemistry, biomedicine or pharmacy. This high level of expertise in this core area is an important prerequisite for InnoMedica's success.
Expanding the valuable know-how of the employees and retaining it in the company has been a key element for the success of InnoMedica since the beginning. With the creation of 12 new positions in 2020, InnoMedica has taken early measures in view of the Talineuren studies planned for 2021, the submission of applications for the market approval of Talidox in the first half of 2021 and the commissioning of the new Clean Room II in our Nanofactory.
In recruitment, InnoMedica places a strong focus on the intrinsic motivation and interests of candidates. Co-determination in personal development within the company is important at InnoMedica in order to fully develop the potential of the employees and enable internal promotion. Furthermore, entrepreneurial thinking is encouraged by enabling employees to also become shareholders. InnoMedica's employees can purchase shares themselves through employee-only share offerings from the pool shareholders. This promotes identification with the company and ensures that the employees have a direct stake in InnoMedica’s success.
With the co-founders Dr. Stéfan Halbherr, Andrea Zurkirchen, Dr. Jonas Zeller and Pascal Halbherr on the management board of InnoMedica Schweiz AG, the company has an experienced and well-coordinated team for the efficient management of the company. As Country Manager at InnoMedica Schweiz AG, Stéfan Halbherr is in charge of the operational business and also heads the Research and Development division. Andrea Zurkirchen is responsible for Communication, HR and Legal & Compliance, while Dr. Jonas Zeller heads the Finance and Administration division. Pascal Halbherr is Head of Manufacturing and is therefore responsible for the operational processes at the Nanofactory in Marly.
The Board of Directors of InnoMedica Holding AG, which was newly established three years ago under the leadership of Dr. Peter Halbherr as President, ensures quick decisions and direct reactions. Thanks to the biochemical background of Dr. Noboru Yamazaki, the medical knowledge of Dr. med. Denis Bron and the economic and entrepreneurial knowledge of Prof. Dr. Urs Wälchli, the board of directors can draw on know-how from various fields. The active involvement of the members of the board of directors in individual projects ensures close proximity to InnoMedica’s operational activities. This is of central importance considering the speed of the company and has enabled the company to move quickly to reach set goals.
