News • 07.09.2021

Jussi Rysä, M.Sc. (Pharm.) has been appointed Unit Head. His responsibilities in DRA’s operations are Market Access, Marketing Compliance and Medical Services, Pharmacovigilance and Language and Communications Services.

Jussi has 20 years of experience in various sales, marketing and business administration roles in the pharmaceutical industry. His past employers include Amgen, Roche and Mundipharma.

We at DRA have been very happy working with Jussi since spring, which is when he started as Senior Sales Manager. He will also continue in this position alongside his new role, maintaining responsibility for his designated customer relationships.

Jussi’s strengths lie in strategic thinking, purposeful business administration and diverse skills in sales and marketing. DRA’s CEO Kaija Korpiaho-Haga would like to share a comment on Jussi: “With a pharmacist’s education and a long career in the pharmaceutical industry, Jussi is a multitalented business administration and sales professional, the likes of which DRA needs to ensure customer-oriented service development and profitable growth. After just his first six months with us, we are happy to say that Jussi has truly earned his place here.”

Jussi comments on his new role as Unit Head: “I am delighted to be able to see the pharmaceutical industry from the service provider’s perspective – I have previously purchased these expert services myself, and my experience with DRA was very positive even back then. My view of the level and diversity of DRA’s competence has only been reinforced, and I am excited to take on my new role as Unit Head.”

DRA’s business operations are divided into three units. The pharmacists (M.Sc, Pharm) Pirkko Talvio and Eija Kinos have managed the other two units at DRA since the beginning of this year. Thus far, the third unit has been managed by Kaija Rinne and Kaija Korpiaho-Haga alongside their primary duties.
