DALLAS Feb. 8, 2011 Targetbase Peter Dannenfelser
Dannenfelser, former Senior Director of Marketing Communications at Forest Labs, Inc., joins Targetbase to deepen its healthcare leadership team. Dannenfelser will lead the healthcare practice, cultivating partnerships and spearheading the integration of emerging channels. Prior to his tenure at Forest Labs, Inc., Dannenfelser was Vice President of Strategic Innovation at Cadient Group after spending five years at Novartis Pharmaceuticals leading Oncology eMarketing, and later, New Marketing Channel Development. Dannenfelser began his healthcare career at Johnson & Johnson, where he helped usher their major pharmaceutical brands into the digital era, created the first e-commerce program for a pharmaceutical company, and was instrumental in the development of Johnson & Johnson’s initial rules and regulations around privacy and data collection.
"Today’s healthcare marketers need strategies that identify and solve a customer need that transcends or complements the physical product or service they are selling," Dannenfelser explained. "Having spent most of my career on our clients’ side of the table, I understand there are inherent challenges to this type of marketing and the barriers to making that leap."
