TraceLink has made several key hires, including prominent supply chain industry leaders and former industry analysts.
The integrated digital supply network provides real-time information sharing for better patient outcomes. The new appointments will support the execution of the company’s strategic plans to expand its business and create a digital information-sharing ecosystem to maximise the efficacy, quality, safety, security and availability of life sciences products that improve the quality of human life.
Shabbir Dahod, President and CEO of TraceLink, said: “TraceLink is in a very unique position to leverage the serialisation network that we have created for drug traceability to digitalise the entire life sciences supply chain.”
Dahod added: “To help us achieve this vision we have added leaders in new roles across the organisation with significant supply chain and SaaS experience that will have a major impact in our expansion,” said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO, TraceLink.
One of the new hires, Roddy Martin, said: “For years, I’ve been helping pharmaceutical supply chain leaders develop end-to-end business value networks to achieve level three and four demand-driven capabilities. At the recent Gartner Supply Chain Summit, the discussion centred around transformation strategies to deploy end-to-end digital value network platforms. Historically, the industry has been held back from achieving breakthrough performance by the limitations of today’s linear hub and spoke integration model.”
On TraceLink, Martin further added: “TraceLink’s digital supply network platform is a game changer – a two-sided network platform connecting the entire upstream and downstream pharmaceutical eco-system with the potential to bring exponential improvement to life science companies as they strive to deliver products on time, safely, and in full that win with patients every time.”
To fuel its expansion as a true, multi-enterprise digital supply network, four new executives will help guide strategy and execution of the company’s business objectives and growth.
The new TraceLink leadership additions include:
“I have watched TraceLink’s success and growth and truly believe that this is a pivotal time for the company as it expands to build a digital supply network for the life sciences industry with serialization at its core,” said Steve Collins. “I have been fortunate to work with some extremely successful SaaS companies, and this role presents an incredible opportunity to provide strategic guidance to TraceLink at this critical period of transformation.”
“In order to digitally transform the supply chain, it is critical to have a digital supply network that will give end users the power to create new processes, some that don’t even exist yet, and that journey is one I am most excited about in joining TraceLink,” said Bermudez. “TraceLink’s digital network platform has the capabilities to transform the industry, allowing companies to build entirely new digital supply chain processes that will enable better collaboration, and visibility, all in a way that will positively impact patient care,” said Bermudez.
TraceLink currently employs more than 540 employees worldwide and has five offices around the globe.
