The Power List 2018 – Industry Influencers

Richard Johnson

Chief Executive Officer and President, Parenteral Drug Association

“I wish I had known the importance of networking within our industry earlier on. So much of what I have learned is from colleagues, and I wish I had recognized and cultivated this earlier. Day-to-day, I never forget that the ultimate users of pharmaceutical products are people, including our families, friends and ourselves. Many of the biggest impacts on modern life have come through better prevention and treatment of diseases. Life expectancy and quality of life have dramatically changed in my lifetime, and any contribution that I can make is an intrinsic good! But I would like to see more focus on improving the manufacturing of pharma products. The predominant business model is to focus on new therapies, but without a corresponding focus on improving the manufacturing of these products, many patients will not receive the quality of pharma products they need.”
