Driven by a passion and dedication to Quality, Sanjay has pursued what can only be described as a pioneering, textbook career path in Pharmaceutical Quality.
Sanjay is renowned for his practical approach in the application of GDP and GMP principles, and is able to connect very well with people all over the world. He is the founder of a very successful group on Linkedin, for Quality professionals, where people can problem solve, share views and best practices.
Now specialising in Good Distribution Practice, Sanjay presents at seminars and provides training in his area of expertise. An advocate of working cross-functionally, Sanjay has always ensured that Quality principles are always considered at the heart of key decisions, whether they be financial, legal or logistical.
Sanjay says, "Every business model is different. So there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to quality systems. Based on a sound risk evaluation, appropriate controls can be applied to ensure patient and regulatory compliance within the business framework."
Graduating in Chemistry, Sanjay embarked on his career over 15 years ago in a leading global pharmaceutical company. Working as a laboratory analyst, he gained a solid grounding in the principles of Good Manufacturing Practice. Through his commitment to Product Safety, Quality and Efficacy, Sanjay has swiftly moved on to head Quality functions for Europe. Most recently he worked as a global auditor for GDP provisions, covering Europe, the Middle East and Australasia.
He has held positions in ethical and Biotechnology pharmaceutical companies as well as large and small generics. Sanjay has designed and implemented the entire Quality System for a European operation; streamlined processes, performed due diligence audits and contributed to vendor selection process as part of his extensive resume. He now works as Quality Director for inglasia pharma solutions and provides consulting services as well as training on behalf of inglasia.
Beginning his career in University teaching has given Peter the ability to assimilate complex information and present it in an understandable fashion. Working at both large and small companies gives Peter the appreciation of the many ways to approach and solve complex problems in the areas of pharmaceutical and biotechnology product development and commercialisation. Along with his vast experience, over 30+ years in the industry and as a consultant, enables him to present courses and material in a manner that makes learning easy and enjoyable for his audience.
Peter says, "With new products becoming more prone to improper conditions, the need for improved operations and safeguards has never been more important in the handling and distribution of pharmaceuticals".
