  • Effectively manage your team to ensure all artwork approval and registration/regulatory compliance components of the product development life cycle.
Here’s what it will take: 
  • Demonstrated leadership experience within Private Label Category Management or Buying.
  • Detailed New Product Development capabilities from within a retail or supplier/wholesale environment, specifically within Pharmaceuticals, Medicinal, Vitamins, or Health related categories.
  • Proven understanding and demonstrated application of the product development process, the commercial applications and financial responsibility behind bringing a new product category to life; you know the technical but back it up with the numbers.
  • Importantly, an eye for health trends and natural enthusiasm for bringing new products to market that meet customer demands.
