Job Details


VYNDAMAX received early FDA approval in 2019 for the treatment of patients with transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM) to reduce cardiovascular-related mortality and hospitalizations. There are two types of ATTR-CM: wild type (wt), and hereditary (h). hATTR-CM has clinical and demographic features that make it distinct from wtATTR-CM and creates different patient journey dynamics.

The Tafamidis Hereditary Lead is a mission-critical US Marketing Director role responsible for leading the development and implementation of the tafamidis hATTR-CM strategy. This will include understanding differences in the hATTR-CM patient journey vs the wtATTR journey, characterizing key leverage points that are unique to the hereditary population, and identifying (and then executing) tactics unique to hATTR-CM to improve diagnosis and tafamidis utilization following FDA approval. This would include both disease education and branded efforts.

The Tafamidis Hereditary-CM Lead serves as the single point of accountability for the US business and is expected to set the strategic direction against which a broad range of cross-functional contributors will execute to maximize the value of the asset to Pfizer.

    Sunshine Act

    Pfizer reports payments and other transfers of value to health care providers as required by federal and state transparency laws and implementing regulations. These laws and regulations require Pfizer to provide government agencies with information such as a health care provider’s name, address and the type of payments or other value received, generally for public disclosure. Subject to further legal review and statutory or regulatory clarification, which Pfizer intends to pursue, reimbursement of recruiting expenses for licensed physicians may constitute a reportable transfer of value under the federal transparency law commonly known as the Sunshine Act. Therefore, if you are a licensed physician who incurs recruiting expenses as a result of interviewing with Pfizer that we pay or reimburse, your name, address and the amount of payments made currently will be reported to the government. If you have questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your Talent Acquisition representative.
