About Dr. Uta Maria Ohndorf | General Manager @ Roche Diagnostics GmbH
Uta-Maria is fascinated by balancing two values – purpose and safety. For her, leaders need to manage this inherent tension, and there is no safe way to excel. She is convinced that yesterday’s logic won’t shape tomorrow: Rather, she directs a company to be more adaptive to change itself.
Her vision for the healthcare transformation is to make the worldwide scientific progress faster accessible for the benefits of patients.
Uta-Maria led organizational transformations in different countries and cultures and has changed the mindset of her teams in Belgium, the Czech Republic and Austria.
She conducted research at MIT, Rockefeller University and Max-Planck-Institute and holds a PhD in Chemistry.
