Name: Bernt Kristian Melgård
Situated in: PHARMAQ Norway
Position: Aquaculture Veterinarian
I enjoy carpentry, building houses and cabins, fishing and outdoor activities in the surrounding area where I live.
What are your main responsibilities in PHARMAQ?
I work with sales and customer activities. This includes contract negotiations, field visits at fish farms and arrangement of meetings and seminars with my customers. In this regard it is most important to make sure that our products are used correctly and I assist customers whenever needed. In addition I have a support function internally, both to my colleagues in sales and clinical research.
Who are you most dependent on in PHARMAQ to get your work done?
First of all I depend on the good quality of our products and deliveries to our customers. As a sales representative, my job is dependent on the production of predictable and sustainable products and the company’s commitment to developing new products. In the sales-team I am dependent on support from my colleagues and I do my best to contribute in making us all better.
What makes PHARMAQ a great place to work?
PHARMAQ is a dynamic workplace with well recognized owners. I enjoy flexible workdays and I feel that I have made a contribution to both good sales results and new product introductions in the markets I work.
Describe a normal day at work:
I do a lot of travelling, both by car and by plane to meet my customers. The activities include e.g. vaccination control, sea site visits, field- trials, seminars and product presentations. At home, my workday usually consists of writing customer reports and planning for the next day in field.
