Abir has acquired 34 years of professional experience in Veterinary pharmaceuticals in India & Emerging markets from Field Sales level to Corporate H.Q. He started his career with Merind Ltd (Merck) Animal Health Division and gradually rose to become the CEO of Sequent Veterinary Formulations (Chief Marketing Officer – Alivira Animal Health), a start-up. In between he worked as General Manager- Animal Health Division for Wockhardt Ltd and General Manager-Sales & Marketing of India operation for Vetoquinol France. During his successful career, Abir turned around the sagging Wockhardt Veterinary business into an important business in terms of growth & profitability. Abir decided to move out of their comfort zone and took up a challenge by joining Sequent Veterinary Formulations “which was a startup” in establishing the Indian Veterinary Formulation division in 2012 which is a global business today with customers spanning worldwide.
Where collaboration became an integral part of all business today, Abir was the front runner for strategising the In-licensing business in India way back in Yr 2003 for Veterinary formulations. This became his core strength as he built up strong relationships with several national & International contacts for tie-up and sourcing. In his illustrious career, he has also developed strong customer relationships with many Key accounts in India and Emerging markets.
While in service, he realized that the market is strongly controlled by a few multinationals who are unwilling to co-creating and bring in cost-effective value-added products to address the gaping underserved emerging markets. It is from this understanding Glamac was born in May 2017 and Abir decided to unfold the next chapter of his life to have his own Veterinary organization.
“Glamac will not be transaction-driven, Glamac believes in Business Collaboration to improve the end customer business.”
