Meet Jim Potenziano, Global Medical Director, Science and Technology

As a Global Medical Director of Science and Technology, Jim understands first-hand the value of combining passion with innovation as he works with his team to develop new applications of the company’s research to improve patient lives.

Keeping patient-centricity top of mind, Jim leads a multi-disciplinary team in making complex decisions about innovative approaches to treatment that have the potential to improve the lives of patients with highly unmet medical needs.

“Jim is integral to the brand and commercial teams, as he works hard to find new opportunities to provide new options to patients, while simultaneously meeting the brand team’s objectives,” said one colleague.

Teamwork is at the core of Jim’s work at MNK; Jim collaborates a multi-disciplinary team of medical, scientific, regulatory and commercial experts to manage MNK’s critical care portfolio.

Working across functional areas, Jim says, is the foundation for his department’s success. “Engaging all teams that support a product through its lifecycle is what enables us to collectively find new improvements and make a difference in disease states with high unmet need.”

As a member of the MNK family for more than 10 years, Jim embodies what it means to be an MNK employee – passionate about making a difference in patient lives by following the science.
