One of the things I like to remind our people to do is remember where we came from. In reflecting on my recent interview with Medical Marketing & Media (MM&M) magazine, in which I talked about CSL Limited’s unique beginning as a government agency, it strikes me that we really are unlike other biotechs.
Founded by the Australian government in 1916, CSL was born to serve people. It wasn’t until 1994 that we were privatized. CSL was established to ensure a continuous supply of medicines to Australians would not be disrupted by World War I. As I mentioned in my interview, we started with a mindset that reflected our government heritage – we’re always scrapping.
