New Managing Director of Janssen Pharmaceutical Company is Jacopo Murzi

Date: 01/21/2014
Since January, Jacopo Murzi is the new Managing Director of Janssen Romania. Prior to his arrival as head of the branch in Romania, Jacopo Murzi held the position of Director of Sales and Marketing, in Janssen Poland.

Jacopo Murzi has graduated from the Polytechnic University of Milan, and holds an MBA degree from Bocconi University School of Management .

Throughout his career, Jacopo Murzi has achieved notable results in sales and marketing management, which are supported by the expertise gained in the field of strategic consulting. He joined Janssen Italy in 2005, where he served as New Business Development Manager. He then moved to Poland, where he helped the Polish branch become market leader in terms of patient loyalty to Janssen products and services, due to a strategic approach and projects, coordinated from his position of Director of Sales and Marketing.

"In 2014, Janssen’s main objective in Romania is to provide Romanian patients with access to its portfolio of innovative treatments that can increase the rate of healing, the life expectancy rate, and decrease hospitalization periods. Currently, access to new drugs is very low compared to other EU countries. This objective is part of a broader strategy that requires finding new ways of developing sustainable financing for the healthcare system in Romania. This way, Romanian patients could benefit from improved treatment", said Jacopo Murzi, the new Managing Director of Janssen Romania.

Of the two main directions of his tenure at the helm of Janssen Romania, one is strengthening the company's reputation in the pharmaceutical industry through clear and transparent initiatives, and developing so as to become a preferred employer within the Romanian labor environment, while continuously growing the size of the company.

"At the operational level, we want to continue the company's growth by expanding and updating its product portfolio, but also to contribute to educational programs aimed at various medical issues and therapeutic areas. Programs that we will initiate in this regard, will reflect Janssen’s global commitment and concern, namely that of being close to the members of the community to which we belong, and conduct philantropic activities", says Jacopo Murzi.

Previously, the Managing Director of the pharmaceutical company Janssen Romania was Makis Papataxiarchis.
