Amicus Therapeutics (NASDAQ:FOLD) is on a journey to become a leading global biopharmaceutical company at the forefront of therapies for rare and orphan diseases. The US company is well established, but the International division is relatively new and therefore has the feel of a start-up organisation, requiring a high level of flexibility, pragmatism and a hands-on “can do” spirit. Amicus Tehrapeu...tics has a commercial product, Galafold (migalastat) in Fabry disease, in the early stages of launch in Europe and other rare and orphan disease products in development. Critical to success at this juncture is the appointment of dynamic and engaged team members who want to be part of this exciting journey.
