Jorindel has been working for Progress since 15 March 2017. She received her Master in Chemistry from the University of Leiden. She started her career at Merck Sharp and Dohme (MSD) in Haarlem as a QA Officer, mainly focused on artwork development, Bill of Materials management and Registration. After that, she lead a department responsible for vendor management and auditing. During this time, one of her priorities was the preparation and facilitation of inspections (e.g. IGZ/IGJ and FDA). Subsequently, she worked on the development and implementation of a new documentation system and later the development of a new lean-focused organisational structure.
In the following years she worked for Operational departments, where she was responsible for the pharmaceutical aspects of aseptic formulation and filling, packaging and cold chain distribution. She has been involved in several large, full-time projects, such as building a new aseptic filling line, where she was responsible for preparation of all operational aspects. She was also involved in the development of the master data change control process as part of the implementation of the SAP automation system.
Her last role at MSD was a position as business consultant, project manager in (inter)national projects and as an intermediate between SAP-IT and the (Quality) organisation.
For Jorindel, compliance, practicality and efficiency are core values which are essential in all parts of a pharmaceutical company. You will see these returning in all her deliverables. Her certification in change management from a lean perspective (Red Belt) fits very well with this way of thinking.
In her spare time Jorindel enjoys being with her children. She also likes to do sports (skiing, running, bootcamp, rowing), being outside and travelling.
