Nicolas Cherrier, PharmD.

Managing Director

Pharmacist with a background in management (ISG and Henley Business School) Nicolas devoted himself for several years to the analytical and pharmacotechnical development of renowned specialties within an international pharma group, which allowed him to acquire a solid “pharmaceutical culture”, and to master all the technical and regulatory aspects of research and development.

This first experience was followed by the management of a regional management in Africa within a “Big Pharma”, an exciting experience marked by the successful launch of major specialties, the implementation of the various tools of “pharma marketing” and the discovery of the realities and riches of multicultural management.

His mastery of the “market developer” function was then refined during 25 years in companies specializing in nuclear medicine as export zone manager, subsidiary director, and international network director.

The valorization of his experience and a certain number of assets (dynamism, enthusiasm, initiative, entrepreneur, creative, “team-player “) led him to take up a new challenge through the creation at the end of 2017 of Equinoxe Pharma, a consulting company whose DNA is to support companies specializing in nuclear medicine, molecular imaging and contrast media in their international development plans and projects.

In June 2021, Nicolas joined Naogen Pharma as Director of Business Development, then was appointed in May 2022 Chief Executive Officer with the missions of successfully completing the MA submission project, and managing the pre-marketing activities of our Rubidium-82 generator.
