DAYTON, Ohio, July 28, 2020 — CSafe Global, the innovation leader in active temperature-controlled container solutions for the transport of life-enhancing pharmaceuticals, has been rapidly expanding the life science sales team throughout Europe to support a growing customer base.

CSafe has been building its worldwide Life Science sales team more than a year to better serve customers in local markets. “As of this month, we have sales directors in key countries to serve local pharmaceutical and life science companies,” said Stephen Kay, CSafe Global’s senior director of life sciences – Europe. “Europe has always been at the forefront of the pharmaceutical market and building an exceptional team of people who understand both the industry and the culture in each country is key to providing the service level CSafe is known for.”

The newest additions to the team include Vincenzo Cuffaro and Gidius van den Eng.

Cuffaro brings seven years’ experience logistics and the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries in Italy and across EMEA. Most recently, he was a Key Account Manager for Pharma & Healthcare for Kuehne + Nagel managing customers on a national, regional or global level. In his new role as Director of Life Science Sales, he will support customers in the south of Europe providing key expertise to help them find the best temperature-controlled air cargo solutions for their needs.

Van den Eng has been working in international logistics and supply chain management for nearly a decade specializing in the life sciences industry. He joins CSafe following seven years with DSV Panalpina A / S (formerly Panalpina) as a Key Account Manager managing multiple global healthcare accounts across the EMEA region. As Director of Passive Life Science Sales – Europe, he will support CSafe customers across the continent with all of their needs for thermal shippers and couriers as well as mobile refrigeration / freezer requirements.

“Europe is a critical market for pharmaceuticals and biologics and CSafe is committed to providing the local support customers need,” said CSafe Chief Commercial Officer, Seth Hertel. These two additions to our existing European team members in the United Kingdom and Ireland, DACH region, France, Benelux and Scandinavia ensure CSafe has the ability to meet the demand for our full suite of air cargo and parcel solutions throughout the region. We are thrilled to them on board and confident they will exceed our expectations.”
