Erica has more than 20 years of human resources experience, all within the healthcare industry (vaccines, big pharma, biotechnology, life sciences, medical device), and describes herself as an engaging business partner who pushes her clients to be their best while helping them navigate challenging situations. Over the course of her career she has excelled at building high-quality, talented teams across multiple departments, including taking Alexion’s Rhode Island Manufacturing Facility from 6 to 125 employees in 6 months, during which time Soliris® (eculizumab) received FDA approval for treatment of Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH), as well as recruiting a new 110-employee sales force in preparation for the launch of Lemtrada® (alemtuzumab), Genzyme’s infusion therapy for Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
