This new role for me is a testament to Poba’s untapped growth potential, as well as our strong commitment to our European customers.

I’m looking forward to providing excellent customer service and partnering with our European clients to save lives and improve patient outcomes."
While we are all going to miss his daily positive attitude and the unique “Rodrigo-isms” that have made him a valued employee and friend, he is an ideal choice for this position.
