Pleasanton, CA | August 30, 2019:
Please join us in officially welcoming Jane Wastl to Govzilla.
Several months ago, Jane joined our panel of contributing experts, lending her expertise to our product development team as well as our publishing department. As of August 2019, she accepted a position as a Senior GMP Quality Expert. “I’m pleased that Jane has accepted my offer to take a larger role at Govzilla,” Says Michael de la Torre. “Her ability to zero in on what’s important to professionals in the pharmaceutical industry and deliver the information they need to make strategic and quality decisions is exactly what we need to deliver our next generation of products.”
About the Expert
Jane brings 34 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry, including 28 years at Eli Lilly in technical and leadership positions in site and corporate quality assurance, quality control laboratory, training, master scheduling, capacity planning, and six sigma.
While there, she was responsible for identifying worldwide regulatory intelligence changes and enforcement actions for the entire company. It was her responsibility to improve the process to communicate and identify items which would impact the Lilly Quality Systems to system owners and then track the progress towards completion and remediation. Additionally, she notified senior Quality and Manufacturing management of significant major regulation changes as well as enforcement actions for other major pharmaceutical companies.
Quarterly, she comprised a report of changes at the top pharma and generic companies and circulated to the Senior VP of Quality and President of Manufacturing so they would be aware of recent changes in the industry. Biweekly, she compiled regulatory changes, enforcement actions, pertinent news articles and trends in enforcement actions in an internal newsletter that was sent throughout Manufacturing and Quality at Lilly.
Jane also participated in the GMP Intelligence subgroup of the Midwest Discussion Group beginning in 2010 and then led the group until the end of 2017.
Jane graduated from Purdue University and is a registered Pharmacist as well as earning her Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt while at Lilly. She also was a pharmaceutical sales representative from May 1983 until January 1987 for the Upjohn Company. She was the Assistant Director of Continuing Education at Purdue University prior to joining Eli Lilly in 1990.
