Stefanie Weiss - another site representative in Basel

I’ve been with Roche since 2003 and have always appreciated the many opportunities for personal development the company offers. I started off as a training manager in Liquids Production in Basel, then moved to Kaiseraugst as part of the start-up team for PKau (Parenterals Kaiseraugst), where I was responsible for implementing a new training scheme.

Michael Leonard Hahn a new member of site representative

Michael grew up in Aachen where, after leaving school, he studied biology. In 1989, these studies took him to England, where he would spend the next 30 years. For about 14 of those, he was employed by Roche Products Ltd in Welwyn Garden City. In 2018, a mixture of curiosity and Brexit brought him to Basel, where he initially worked in NIBR at Novartis. Subsequently, in summer 2020, he joined PDN – and is very glad about it!

Dr. Severin Schwan and the AVR

The traditional meeting between Roche CEO Dr Severin Schwan and the AVR, together with Ms Cris Wilbur, Head of Group P&C, Mr Jürg Erismann, Basel/Kaiseraugst Site Head, and Mr Bruno Wissen, Head of P&C Basel/Kaiseraugst, normally takes place face-to-face in one of the large conference rooms in Building 71. Given these very different times, however, the meeting took place virtually via Zoom instead. After a brief exchange of greetings, things immediately got underway.
