Chicago, October 3, 2018 – ​​​The International Association of Women (IAW) recognizes Nancy Alexander as a 2018-2019 Influencer. She is acknowledged as a leader in business. The International Association of Women (IAW) is a global in-person and online networking platform with nearly one million members, 1000+ in person and virtual events, over 100 Local US based Chapters and International Chapters in several cities in China.

“I’m pleased to welcome Nancy into this exceptional group of professional women,” said IPDN President and IAW Spokesperson Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.”

Nancy Alexander began her highly successful career in the pharmaceutical sales industry more than 20 years ago at Teva Neuroscience, where she focused on products for the treatment of multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease. “The company went through a merger and I lost my job, which can be an even bigger challenge if you do not have a network of support,” Ms. Alexander said. “I then went into home automation sales, working for a company that manufactured the wireless devises.” She stayed with Centralite Systems, Inc., for two years and then landed a position back in pharmaceutical sales, which is truly where her passion lies.

Working with managed care can be challenging, especially with the industry's changing landscape but I love the teamwork and collaboration and I enjoy helping others achieve success.

Account Director, Southeast at Sanofi Genzyme

Since 2015, Ms. Alexander has been Account Director, Southeast, at Sanofi Genzyme, which focuses on products for multiple sclerosis, rare diseases, immunology and oncology. “I have no direct reports but I work with the sales force and sales managers,” she said. “I call on managed care companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare and Medicaid, and my territory is Alabama, Florida and Puerto Rico.”

Ms. Alexander uses her skills in contract negotiating, communication, leadership and project management, as well as her expansive product knowledge, to ensure the company’s products  are easily accessible to the appropriate patients via exceptional insurer coverage. “Working with managed care can be challenging, especially with the industry’s changing landscape but I love the teamwork and collaboration and I enjoy helping others achieve success,” she said.

As a single, working mother, Ms. Alexander also admits it’s challenging to balance her home and work obligations but, like so many women, she makes it all work. She volunteers at her church and has always been involved in her children’s school. She was the PTSA president and now sits on the board of the Consortium for Educational Enrichment of Dawes, a fundraising platform for the school district.

Ms. Alexander’s future professional goals include continuing with professional development so she can further hone her skills. “I want to learn as much as I can and take on more leadership roles,” she said. “Eventually, in five to eight years, as my youngest child goes off to college, I will have developed a skill set that can then open new doors for me down the road.”
