The Power of Knowledge
is the Power of We.
Product Reference Data Manager
My name is Carmen Inês, and I’m a pharmacist. My professional journey began on November 04, 2002, at the ANF Group (National Association of Pharmacies Group). People, mission, vision and a unique and strong culture showed me that I was in the right place.
“Career happens when performance and commitment find opportunities.”
My Path to HMR.
I started as an Information Manager, working on the professional component of SIFARMA 2000, an innovative system to support the daily practice of the Portuguese Pharmacies, it continues to evolve and help the ANF Group to pursue its Mission of making pharmacies the primary health care area most valued by the Portuguese. It was a demanding 12-year period with great rewards and unforgettable memories.
In 2009 HMR was created and a new challenge arose. The aim was to continue working on information, but now with a market perspective. Almost everything was new to me, and in the early days, it was like a game with different levels that I had to overcome. It was addictive!
On November 11, 2013, I found myself traveling to Madrid, where I worked for almost two and a half years, as a Product Catalogue Coordinator in HMR Spain. This new challenge was proof that HMR trusted me, my capabilities and my commitment. It was really challenging. A new country, a new reality…. So far, and despite all the great experiences I’ve had, this was probably the most impactful one.
2015 was a special year. I received the Recognition and Excellence Award, from the ANF Group.
In March 2016, I had the pleasure of being invited to manage the new Product Reference Data team at HMR headquarters. With a strong feeling of union, a high level of commitment and excellence in everything they do. I usually say that they are the best team in the world! Together, we guarantee permanent pharmaceutical support to HMR commercial activities and the development of new projects, in addition to the continuous update of information on hundreds of thousands of products. We are permanently aware of market needs while following the evolution of the pharmaceutical market.
Looking back at my journey so far, the most important aspect is the people I met and continue to meet. The certainty that I want to do more, learn more and contribute more to transform the information we produce into Knowledge for better health!!!
