  • Tracy Pike
    Tracy Pike
    Marketing Lead, Rhythm Pharmaceuticals Inc.

    Who would have thought the girl from Canada would win the Marketer of the Year award in New York City? Not me. But I was humbled to bring home the award, and grateful for the recognition.

    My passion for learning and curiosity for understanding human behavior led me to pursue a Bachelor of Arts (Honors) in Psychology. Leveraging what I learned, coupled with relentless ambition, lead me to the pharmaceutical industry as a Sales Representative, where I was consistently recognized as a Top Performer with outstanding results.

    As I’ve progressed in my career, I’m known for exceeding expectations in Sales, Marketing and Leadership roles. I am hungry for challenges and trying things never done before! I’ve progressed through various Marketing roles with increasing responsibilities, most notably was being Commerical Lead for the launch of SHINGRIX vaccine where I lead ‘first ever’ activities at GSK which created awareness and demand for the vaccine among consumers and HCPs.

    As a District Sales Manager at GSK, I lead a newly formed team of sales representatives to drive growth and innovation in the respiratory portfolio, implementing programs that meet the needs of our customers and exceed our company’s objectives. With over 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, I have a proven track record of delivering results, launching products, and building strong relationships with stakeholders across different therapeutic areas.

    Before you go, here are a few things you should know:
    – I am authentic and transparent, and TRUST is part of every fiber in me
    – I strive to inspire and empower my team and love seeing others achieve excellence
    – Things I live by: #neveradullmoment; #howhardcanitbe?
