Hi, I’m Harold. I am Canadian, originally from Toronto, and I have been living in Zurich for four years.

My role at Vifor Pharma is focused on the effective and timely delivery of the Group’s financial results, both internally and externally. I also contribute my financial expertise to various projects allowing me to work in cross-functional teams which keeps the work fresh and exciting.

What’s challenging but also fulfilling about our work in Finance is the need to be able to anticipate requests and also being prepared to react quickly to those. This allows us to add maximum value to the business.

What I like most about working for the company is the excitement that comes along with the transformation and the growth story over the past years. This makes working at Vifor Pharma very exciting every day.

For the company, but also for us in Finance, values are very important to our work. When we are under pressure to deliver on a project, it is imperative that the team is working together and pulling the rope in the same direction.

It brings me a lot of satisfaction in my work to contribute to the continued development of our Finance organisation into a gold standard.
