Wishing Ray from PAAB a happy retirement

Natalie et Ray Chepsiuk - PAAB Commissionner - retraiteCongratulations to Ray Chepesiuk on his retirement from the Pharmaceutical Advertising Advisory Board (PAAB)

Over the past 20+ years, he has saved me from getting into regulatory trouble on multiple occasions during my brand management days, and once I went off on my own, he still took the time to discuss topics for my blog and even connected me with various people who might lead to business opportunities. In fact, Ray brought me in for my very first pharma social media training session to train the PAAB reviewers. That was when social media was still in its infancy. One of the highlights of my career was back in 2009 when Ray invited me to sit with him and others on a speaker panel focused on social media & pharma. I felt so intimidated but Ray always showed his confidence in me.

I, as well as many other Canadian pharmaceutical marketers, learned a lot from Ray, both from a regulatory and a leadership perspective. Thank you, Ray, for your kindness, generosity and support throughout all these years. Best wishes on your well-deserved retirement.
