Delivering value to doctors and patients
As Supply Chain Manager my main focus is to support our network of hospitals by ensuring that they have access to our technology and solutions where and when they need it. I like working behind the scenes, to support our global community and to see how our technology is making a positive impact in patients’ lives.
Our function supports clinicians by making sure they are ready to receive samples, ensuring they are satisfied with our technology and ensuring that we meet their logistical needs. My department did not exist when I joined SOPHiA GENETICS, so I feel a bit like an entrepreneur within the company. I really feel like I am a part of it. I learn so much every day from my colleagues. We are building and growing together, and that is amazing. Now I am responsible for the delivery of all our products with many operational and logistical challenges.
My dream as a child was to become a paediatrician, but my character is a better fit for strategy and economics. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Management at the University of Fribourg and then my Masters in Strategic Management at the Haute Ecole de Commerce in Lausanne. When I saw the job ad for a Junior Supply Chain Manager at SOPHiA GENETICS, I was really excited. Now, after a year and a half I am convinced that this is the job for me.
We serve our network of 450 hospitals across 60 countries which is continuously growing. Our function has to bridge many other departments in order to optimize our processes and ensure that we provide the same quality of service. We have two ISO certifications and our procedures have to match and support these complex requirements. I love the mix of styles in my job because there's a lot of room for creativity but at the same time it's also about strategy and structuring. Of course, you have to calculate, you have a lot of numbers. But at the same time, you have to find creative solutions. In supply chain, we get to talk to everyone. I like to be in contact with other departments and people so I can see what everyone is doing and together we can figure out how to optimize our processes to support doctors and patients all over the world.
The ambience we have in the company is simply incredible. What we do is important and the people we get to work with are amazing. Working at SOPHiA GENETICS, you know that you doing something good and are making meaningful difference in patients’ lives.
