In the last month, we’ve added two new staff members to our Edinburgh office.

Brigitte Schiessl joined as our Portfolio Director. Brigitte previously worked with Novartis Animal Health where she headed the European Clinical Operations team in Basel, France and the UK.

“It was my childhood dream to become a veterinarian and to use my skills and training to help people in parts of the world that are facing major challenges. Keeping livestock healthy is certainly an excellent way of helping people to lead healthier and happier lives. This is why I am so excited about joining GALVmed and contributing to this noble goal,” said Brigitte.

Rosie Stewart, our new Finance Manager joined us in mid-March. She will run the finance department on a day-to-day basis. Rosie is a Qualified Chartered Accountant and previously worked as the Head of Finance at a Scottish mental health charity.

I’m really pleased to have joined Galvmed as the Finance Manager,” said Rosie. “I think the work that GALVmed is doing is really valuable and I’m delighted to be a part of that. Hopefully my previous experience working in charities will allow me to be a useful addition to the team.”
