MarioMarketing Manager Medical
I joined Danone six years ago. I had a classical FMCG background and moved to the medical nutrition. For me, one of the best decisions ever. First, I worked in Sales and today I am Marketing Manager and responsible for medical drink nutrition. For me it is the most meaningful job so far and I feel privileged to work with products that really make a difference for people who suffer from health issues.
Marketing in medical nutrition is totally different to classical FMCG. We talk and communicate with health care professionals to inform, educate and promote our products. There will be no fancy TV spot, but you will work for a product that is nessecary for our patients. Innovation is something that is part of my day to day job. We constantly try to find better solutions and products, that make life easier for our patients and help them to get the right nutrition in difficult times.
I feel I can improve people's daily life by creating functional and sustainable packaging.
My work environment
Something I have never experienced before is the culture of Danone. Our values are not only written on paper but lived by every single one. No matter whom you are talking to, you can simply feel this culture. When I meet a colleague from another devision or department, I feel immediately connected with a feeling of "knowing each other for ages".
