Philips reshaped from a diversified conglomerate to a focused leader in health technology. The company has set the bold target of improving 3 billion lives per year by 2025. The Market Analysis & Forecasting (MA&F) team at Philips plays a key role in this. The team is in need of an experienced director Health Technology Solutions with a strong analytical and healthcare background.
Innovation with purpose
In 2017 alone, Philips’ solutions and technologies touched 2.2 billion people – and still has ambitious growth plans. At the core of the Strategy, Mergers & Acquisitions and Partnerships (SMAP) department, one of the most dynamic teams of the company, the Market Analysis & Forecasting (MA&F) team is expanding with a Director Health Technology Systems, a Director Health Technology Solutions and a Director New Business Creation. They will help predict and model the foundation for Philips’ growth through health technology solutions.
These analytic roles will work closely with the Vice President Head of Market Analysis & Forecasting. Under the VP’s new way of approaching analytics, the ideal candidate will source and create their own data from scratch, triangulating the output with a wide range of internal and external sources.
“We are not tracking the market. We are forecasting and influencing it.” – Hugo Barbosa Vazquez, VP Head of Market Analysis & Forecasting
