Anybody who cares about Santarus's upside, and those shorts who are tired of defeats, should read the well-done piece on the company's boss. It gives you a better appreciation of why Santarus is such a special company.
The article highlights his managerial philosophy of being close to his sales representatives and by extension being close to the customer. He is focused on driving the company forward through personal contact and a humanistic approach. It's a short but good read. Thank you for pointing it out tough.
My communications with the company confirm that G. Proehl is a gifted manager who is immensely admired by his colleagues, most of whom have been with him since the beginning of the company. It is a very loyal group.
