People

Our achievements would not be possible without the outstanding team that make up Shield Therapeutics’ staff, management and board of directors.

Chief Executive Officer and co-founder

Carl Sterritt

With approximately 20 years’ of management and executive level experience in pharmaceutical development and commercialisation in both large and small company settings, Carl has led the Company as its CEO since he co-founded the Group in 2008 together with Dr.Christian Schweiger.

Previously, Carl held senior management roles at United Therapeutics and Encysive Pharmaceuticals, working on innovative therapies for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension. Carl joined United Therapeutics to establish the company’s European operations in preparation for the marketing approval of Remodulin®, running the subsidiary for six years. In collaboration with physicians in Germany, he was responsible for and holds patents related to United Therapeutics’ decision to develop and commercialise treprostinil; now successfully commercialised in the US as Tyvaso™. Carl was instrumental in the successful commercial launch of Thelin™ and the rapid growth of Encysive’s European operations. Carl founded the Group after Encysive was acquired by Pfizer Inc. for more than $300m.
