Pharmaceutical CEO of the year 2018: Augusto Mitidieri
THE CEO OF SINTETICA
IS A WINNER AT THE EUROPEAN CEO AWARDS 2018
A prestigious new addition to the list of awards won by Sintetica SA, the oldest pharmaceutical company in the Canton of Ticino, specialising in the production of top quality medicines for locoregional anaesthesiology and pain management. The firm's CEO, Augusto Mitidieri, received the European CEO Award 2018* for "Best CEO in the Pain Management Industry".
The European CEO Awards 2018 recognise the leaders who have an eye for innovation and, having firmly positioned their companies at the front of the pack, are now shaping the industries they work in.
Justification for this award includes the words:
"Mitidieri has shown a commitment to maintaining the firm's leading position within the global pharmaceuticals and pain management industry"
One of Mitidieri's main ambitions has been to implement an organisational model based on responsibility and meritocracy, rather than rigid internal hierarchies. Such an ideal falls in line with Sintetica's aim to create a working environment based on innovative ideas and positive dynamics, resulting in first-rate products that help hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide.
Most recently, Sintetica obtained marketing authorisation in the USA for its product Clorotekal, making it one of very few SMEs in the world to have registered an original pharmaceutical product in the country.

Sintetica SA Named Europe's Pharmaceutical Company of the Year by Business Worldwide Magazine.
Swiss based pharmaceutical company Sintetica SA has another award to add to its already impressive collection, having been named 'Pharmaceutical Company of the Year - Europe' in the 2018 Brand of the Year Awards by Business Worldwide Magazine.
The 2018 Brand of the Year Awards recognize and reward organizations that have performed exceptionally over the previous 12 months, becoming dynamic forces within their industries. The judging panel look not only for businesses of world class quality, but those that strive to push boundaries, challenge perceptions and respond to global problems; earning respect from their peers and becoming employers of choice. Sintetica SA impressed the panel with its clear commitment to ongoing development, innovation and "quality without compromise" - the company's mantra.
Sintetica SA's CEO Augusto Mitidieri is leading the way in a new business model that encourages collaborative and horizontal working, combining state of the art technology with a human-centred approach. The company has come a long way since it was formed almost 100 years ago, going from a small business in Switzerland to a global company employing 300 people across 29 countries. Delivering injectable anaesthetics and analgesics to patients worldwide, the company has been the market leader in its field for many years and is now forging the way in the growing field of neuromodulation. The global division was only established in 2012, but growth is already exceeding 200% - a testament to the hard work and commitment of the CEO and his team.
Mitidieri says that the company's culture of respect has played an important role in its success. "What differentiates us from competitors is that all strategic choices are based on values of respect, a core value that permeates across every employee. It is about creating a pleasant environment in which employees can work and express themselves. When hiring new employees, we look for 'smart' people who share our thirst for diversity, our respect for traditions and our aim to be a leading global company."
This "people first" approach extends way beyond the staff team, positively affecting relationships with business partners and realizing the best possible care solutions for patients. Mitidieri's innovative new organization model, the 'Human Centered Organization', is based on the idea of responsibility and meritocracy rather than hierarchy, with managers moving from a role of command to a coaching style.
This refreshing approach certainly appears to be working. The company has recently obtained the go-ahead to market a new drug application in the United States; an outstanding achievement as one of the few small-medium sized companies in the world to register a new product in the US. It is also developing a radical new innovation in the field of post-surgery pain relief that has the potential to change the way pain is managed throughout the world.

award Best CEO/Pharmaceutical Industry Europe
Ultimately in charge of 230 employees spread
across 25 different countries, his job is incredibly
strategic, thanks to competition from emerging
countries and long-term austerity measures
Europe-wide. But it's not all doom and gloom for
this talented CEO. That's because today there is
more investment in pharmaceutical research and
development than ever before.
And Mitidieri is determined that Sintetica - whom
he has worked with for the past 17years – will
remain a leading player within the industry. The
95-year-old company develops injectable
anaesthetics and analgesics on a global scale.
These are specifically used for local anaesthesia,
pain management and neuromodulation. Mitidieri
regards development, production and marketing
as crucial areas for the company's future strategy.
Receiving his Best CEO Award from the magazine's
executives, Mitidieri insisted that innovation within
his industry wasn't merely about products, but also
management style and organisation.
"Getting this right has been one of
the key elements of our success here
at Sintetica" he declared.
Sintetica has its HQ in Switzerland, where it
employs around 40 per cent of the company's
total workforce. Other countries in which it has a
base includes Germany, Austria, Italy and the

ethical criteria and share our

proposition" said Mitidieri.
As you would expect, Sintetica is a company which
regards staff as a core resource. As such Mitidieri
strives to offer a creative culture and doesn't even
mind risk taking too much, provided it's what he
would describe as "informed".
"Making Sintetica a great
place to work is our belief and is, in
fact, part of our DNA."
