Meet our people

Meet John Wikowski, President

I strongly feel that we have an outstanding team of people here at DSM Biomedical, and that this is our greatest asset. We are comprised of a bright, intelligent, diverse, and caring group of individuals who are committed to delivering on our promises, in a safe and sustainable way. From my experience, we all have fun working together as we embrace our company culture across the globe. Lastly, I also take pride in how our team creates innovative and unique solutions to our world’s healthcare needs, while also prioritizing safety in everything that we do. The entire team works tirelessly to ensure that everyone can go home safely to their loved ones each day which, at the end of the day, is what matters the most.

2. What are you looking forward to in 2021?

I truly believe that 2021 is our year to shine, and continue to unleash our full potential as an organization, while also remaining supportive of one another during these difficult times. We have an extensive portfolio of biomaterial technologies and solutions, and are always exploring new ways to bring increased value to our customers. Innovation is embedded into our DNA at DSM Biomedical, and I anticipate that this will be a major focus in 2021 for all of us. All hands are in, and I cannot wait to see our big ambitions and ideas come to life throughout the year – stay tuned!

3. Any key lessons from 2020 that you’d like to share?

2020 definitely presented challenges to all of us but, all in all, I would say that the greatest lesson that I learned was that we are all capable of doing more than we think we can, when we lean on one another and work together! It would have been far too easy to accept the environment and climate as is, but instead we all exhibited a tremendous amount of resilience in the face of adversity.

Our manufacturing teams across the globe braved the pandemic and came into work so we could keep providing products to our customers, some of which are in a multitude of lifesaving devices. Several innovation team members also helped us keep key programs moving forward by coming into the facilities to run experiments, and externally, our commercial team continued to find creative ways to engage with our customers. 2020 was a huge team effort, and it is all very much appreciated!

4. Anything else exciting happening at DSM Biomedical this year that you’d like to share?

There is so much for me to say here, but I’ll leave you with this.

Through all of life’s uncertainties, our vision remains the same - We will continue to focus on our commitments with our external partners, and provide support to our internal team as we welcome new ways of working. We will continue to focus on maintaining safe and efficient operations, each and every day. And last but certainly not least, we will continue solving our world’s healthcare through sustainable science!
