Podcast Description:

In pharma, it takes many failures to achieve one breakthrough. Dompé, a family-owned global biopharmaceutical company, focuses on long-term success, knowing those wins can impact thousands or even millions of patients. Gianluca Rossetti, Strategic Planning & Corporate Business Development Director at Dompé, was drawn by the company’s ambition, passion, and commitment to innovation and science.

Today, he uses his management consulting background to guide the company’s business strategy, lead strategic projects, and provide direction as the company works to expand its ophthalmology portfolio.

With podcast host and retina surgeon Firas Rahhal, MD, Gianluca shares Dompé’s vision and gives details into its pipeline. He also provides insight into what’s kept the company going for over 130 years — through two world wars and two pandemics.

A clue: as a family-owned company, Dompé focuses less on quarterly results and more on long-term impact.
