Following on from Dr Jim Golby’s comments only last week, David Garmon-Jones, co-chair of the competition’s executive steering group (ESG is also calling on all pharma sales professionals to get involved in the competition.

He says: “I have been involved with PharmaTimes awards programmes on and off over many years and the all-new Sales Awards is a hugely welcome addition. They are a real opportunity to recognise the hard work of this ever changing and dynamic arm of pharma.

“Pharma sales, in the broadest sense, cover a wide variety of roles and these awards will shine a light on the important work of these pharma sales professionals.”

Not only is this three-stage competition free to enter, it’s also the only pharmaceutical sales awards where representatives are evaluated by their healthcare professional clients, before pitting them head-to-head in a real life challenge against their peers.

Categories include: Primary Care Sales Professional of the Year, Secondary Care Sales Professional of the Year, Key Account Manager of the Year, Regional Sales Manager of the Year, Second Line Manager of the Year, Orphan/Rare Disease Sales Professional of the Year, Field Based Sales Trainer/Coach and Localised/ Regional Market Access Manager of the Year.

All finalists will be invited to the high-profile awards ceremony, where their success will be celebrated alongside other industry leaders.

The ceremony, to be held in November in central London, will coincide with the presentation of the PharmaTimes Marketer of the Year and Communications Team of the Year Awards, providing an unbeatable networking opportunity for everyone involved.
