Before co-founding the predecessor company of PPH plus in 2004, Johanna gained more than 25 years of experience in clinical research and pharmaceutical medicine working for both US pharma companies and international Contract Research Organizations (CROs) in increasingly senior international and European management and operational responsibilities.

Her track record in clinical development covers a broad spectrum of therapeutic areas from infectious diseases, including HIV, to rheumatology, anxiety, depression, cancer, cardiovascular disorders, and allergies. She project managed multi-national full-service mega-trials in infants and children with both vaccines and therapeutics. In her senior management roles she focused on customer satisfaction with project delivery, and the liaison with customers’ top management.

Johanna has been very actively engaged in scientific societies for Pharmaceutical Medicine at both the national and international level. She was co-editor of the first German textbook on ‘Good Clinical Practice’ (first edition published in 1989) and makes regular contributions to conferences as speaker or chairperson. Johanna´s special interest areas in addition to GCP and medicines regulations are process improvement and productivity benchmarking and optimization. She is serving customers with consultancy in organizational design matters and with managing challenges in demanding projects or critical project stages.
