Marco MohwinckelChief Commercial Officer
Marco is Chief Commercial Officer at COMPASS Pathways, leading on commercial strategy.
Throughout his career, Marco has been an outspoken advocate for change, innovation and entrepreneurship in healthcare. Over the past 15 years he led strategy and commercial operations for digital and pharmaceutical companies across various therapeutic areas and continents.
Most recently he was VP of Strategy at WebMD / Medscape, the leading online health information platform for consumers and healthcare professionals; previously he worked at Johnson & Johnson as Global Head of Janssen Healthcare Innovation, where he was part of the Global Commercial Strategy Leadership Team, and as head of the Neuroscience Business Unit in the UK. As a management consultant at the Monitor Group, he advised life sciences and technology companies on growth strategies, market access, product launches, operational excellence, business development and strategic partnerships.
Marco is an active advisor and independent board member in several health-tech start-ups and digital health networks. He engages in public speaking on digital health innovation and has co-authored several articles, most notably “Beyond magic bullets: True Innovation in Healthcare” (Nature Reviews Drug Discovery, 2013), arguing for the need to develop holistic solutions and new business models for patients suffering with mental illnesses.
In the next few years, we will see significant breakthroughs in the treatment of many 'silent' and debilitating mental health conditions, like depression, which affect millions of people around us. Having worked in this field for years, I am excited to be part of COMPASS on a pioneering mission to build and cross bridges that lead to a better future; one without prejudice or stigma, where empowered individuals have universal access to the best possible treatment and support.
