I live with a strong sense of urgency because life is happening in real-time and I don’t delay taking on a challenge or seizing an opportunity to provide and ask for feedback. Stepping up, managing and leading an organization – especially as we prepare to be a standalone company – takes focus, and mine is on growing an inclusive, diverse and entrepreneurial culture as we strive to increase our portfolio of generic and biosimilar medicines and support policies that improve patient access. My goal is for Sandoz to emerge as a stronger organization with an enhanced understanding of the needs of the diverse communities we serve.
Keren holds an MBA in Finance from Bar-Ilan University and Bachelor’s degrees in both Economics and Chemistry from Tel Aviv University. Outside of work, Keren enjoys spending time with her 5 children. She is an avid runner with one marathon and three half-marathons under her belt.
