T: +9714 448 7777

I lead Carter Murray’s Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences practice covering the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. In this growing sector, we consult with our clients to match leading talent with high profile multinational organisations across the pharmaceutical, medical device and life science sectors. I am a seasoned HR professional with an extensive background in recruitment, executive search and executive coaching. I relocated from Germany to Dubai in 2007 working within the HR department at Emirates successfully driving worldwide recruitment campaigns and growth. In addition, I set up my own executive and leadership coaching business catered for senior executives concentrating on enhancing effectiveness and behavioural skills. Prior to joining Carter Murray, I was responsible for emerging markets in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region at a boutique Life Science & Consumer Search firm where I focused on C-level and senior positions in sales, finance and marketing in some of the world’s leading consumer and life science companies.
