Sue Mann

Sue obtained her degree in Pharmacy from the University of Nottingham and after successfully completing her pre-registration year, joined Eli Lilly at their manufacturing plant in Hampshire. This plant manufactured and packed a wide range of solid dose forms, powders for reconstitution, plus a range of penicillin and cephalosporin products. At the time, the company had its own small API plant on site, a capsule shell manufacturing plant, plastic bottle manufacturing area plus print works. After time in Production Support and various QA roles, Sue moved to the R&D site in Surrey where she headed up the European Clinical Trials unit; managing the manufacture and then packing, labelling and randomisation of products for various clinical trials.

Sue then moved to a small company (now part of Ethypharm) where sterile ophthalmic preparations were manufactured together with a range of semi solids and liquid products. Here she worked hard to improve the company’s inspection record with the Regulatory Authority.

Sue then joined David Begg Associates and was a partner in the company providing training, consultancy and auditing services to the industry for nearly 10 years.

Sue then took up a position with Eisai as European Quality Director; working with her US counterpart and managing a number of Eisai owned or contract manufacturing facilities. Here she was involved in both commercial and R&D products/projects. Sue then joined Shire Biopharmaceuticals as VP International QA; responsible for all aspects of quality for development and commercial products. At that time, Shire was principally a “virtual” company so all these activities were outsourced. During this time, Sue built a highly motivated, high performing team of QA professionals.

Sue has now been independent for over 10 years and enjoys providing training, supporting companies and auditing. Sue has also been involved with UNIDO, working in a number of countries in Africa helping to support local manufacture of pharmaceutical products.

Sue now delivers training courses for RSSL on an independent basis.
