PROFILE Stefan Oelrich

PROFILE Stefan Oelrich In service to health Introducing Stefan Oelrich Mr Oelrich, you have lived and worked in many parts of the world. What makes Berlin unique in your eyes? In my opinion, Berlin is the most dynamic city in Europe. In no other place in the world the unification of east and west – and with it the associated creation of a new, united and free Europe – is as perceptible as it is on every street corner here. And our city is also the only true metropo lis in Germany. In your opinion, what challenges are facing the Berlin of tomorrow? What would you recommend to someone visiting Berlin for the first time? Immerse yourself in the city‘s diversity – start with a curried sausage on the Kurfürstendamm and photos in the C/O Berlin, for lunch grab a doner kebab in Kreuzberg and take a trip to the Jewish Museum, then finish off on the museum island and enjoy the impressionists and expressionists at the Alte Nationalgalerie. Stefan Oelrich has been managing director of Sanofi-Aventis Deutschland GmbH since 2011. He is responsible for the marketing and sales organisation in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, with over 1,500 employees and sales of EUR 1.5 billion in 2012. Sanofi is one of the largest healthcare companies in the three countries and has strategic growth platforms for diabetes, oncology, cardiovascular health, as well as generic medicines and consumer healthcare products. Oelrich has been Being a metropolis alone is not enough to guarantee a successful future. Berlin must also transpose its dynamic population growth into high quality growth in science and industry. This naturally applies in particular to our key competence areas of health, IT and mobility, where we are not always absolute world leaders in many areas – despite positive developments. Where can you be found outside of work? When the weather‘s good together with my wife and two daughters on Wannsee, or frequently at business meetings in one of the city‘s many restaurants. What are your aims as the region‘s cluster spokesman? In addition to new companies settling here, innovations in particular play a central role for Berlin as an industrial and scientific hotspot. The city is home to Europe‘s largest university hospital and has over 6,000 scientists: With this, we need to generate greater output for innovations. We must improve framework conditions which allow us to develop the good ideas of Berlin‘s researchers into more patents and products. Thank you for talking to us.

Stefan Oelrich set out on his career path in 1989, at the Bayer Group in Leverkusen.

This was followed by a post in Paris at the head of Bayer Healthcare. From January 2007 until his move to Sanofi in September 2011, he headed up the Women’s Healthcare division of Bayer in the USA as Senior Vice President, where he was responsible for 700 employees.
