Jan Price, National Director of Women’s HealthCare and Neurology Medical Science Liaisons Teams at Bayer was honored as a Luminary by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) at its annual Woman of the Year event, Thursday, May 3, at the New York Hilton Midtown.
Nearly 2,500 leaders from across the industry gathered to celebrate the work of 33 Luminaries and other prominent honorees who are collaborating as a “united force for change” to advance women’s impact and influence in the healthcare and life sciences industries.
HBA Luminaries are professionals with more than 20 years of professional industry experience, serve as a role model in their company, actively mentor and sponsor others and are a shining example of transformational leadership that the organization wants to formally recognize.
Price, who has served in various roles with Bayer for most of the past 17 years, has throughout her career held critical marketing and scientific posts at other major health science companies. A graduate of Montclair State University, she also holds a master’s degree in chemistry from this institution as well as an MBA in pharmaceutical studies and marketing from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
“I am very proud of Jan’s accomplishments,” said Carsten Brunn, Bayer’s President of Pharmaceuticals, Americas Region. “Her commitment to mentoring others is the hallmark of a generous and thoughtful leader. She has been an inspiration to future leaders in the organization and is an example of our Four Focus Behaviors – Collaboration, Experimentation, Customer-Focus and Trust.”
“The love that she gets from that team I’ve rarely seen in my career,” said Edio Zampaglione, Bayer’s vice president of U.S. Medical Affairs, Women’s Healthcare and Neurology. “She just is truly the quintessential team player and collaborator and problem solver. She exemplifies all the key core values we have at Bayer, and even all the key core values of being a decent human being and leader.”
