The healthcare industry is in a period of transition. While the pharma blockbuster business model is under pressure, market share for digital ecosystem business models will reap the rewards in the next 5-10 years. As a result, there is an opportunity to make global healthcare systems more equitable and help address climate change
In a consulting career spanning more than ten years, he has guided some of the largest global pharmaceutical and medical technology companies through sweeping transformations. He sees his role in identifying new opportunities for the healthcare industry at an early stage. Currently, he is particularly concerned with digitalization, health equity and the transition to a carbon-free, climate-neutral economy. He also focuses on developing and implementing growth strategies, portfolio optimization, mergers and acquisitions.
Dr. Freytag advises life science clients across 18 time zones from San Francisco to Seoul. Working in a diverse, international environment never fails to excite him. With his quadrilingual family, he has lived on Lake Zurich for over ten years, where he found his adopted home after stints in Germany and Singapore. He finds balance and fulfilment in his work for development aid projects in Africa.
