My Flight Book

Dr Wilhelm Trentmann

My professional career has touched down in destinations such as GMP Production, Quality Control QC, Quality Assurance QA, Quality Management QM and Chemistry/Manufacturing/Control CMC . While focussing on a wide range of established APIs and NCE entities from high potent hormones to large volume parenteral (LVP)/contrast media, I also followed my passion for the chemistry of oligonucleotides.

In addition to that, I have developed a solid set of management skills, as my career route always intersected with management assignments that involved restructuring, due diligences, mergers and other substantial organizational changes.

In terms of entrepreneurship, I was socialized in a start-up company (Proligo) and received my professional education at big pharmaceutical companies (Schering AG, Bayer AG) applying a lean-leadership model.
Furthermore, as I am an inventor myself, development thinking is in my DNA. My general API expertise is confirmed by the BfArM as a nominated delegate for the expert group 10B EDQM/Strasbourg acting as an author or co-author for a series of Ph.Eur. monographs.
