Annette is passionate about always putting the customer first by helping them to gain insights for finding answers to their most important scientific questions and for enhancing clinical value creation. She believes this is best enabled through an organizational culture of belonging and empowerment, supported by operational excellence, leveraging the Danaher Business System.
