Zealand Pharma President of US Operations on first launch: Timing was our most important goal

Zealand Pharma has started to launch its hypoglycemia treatment Zegalogue in the US. According to the president of the firm's US operations, this is a crucial time as Americans start returning to schools and the covid-19 pandemic has led the company to invest significantly in digital sales and promotion opportunites.

He manages around 150 people at the US organization, and as a member of the global company management, one of his tasks is ensuring that products are launched successfully in the US.
