Jude Vethanayagam

When we pick up medication from a pharmacy, we seldom question if it’s safe to use it. This quality assurance is Jude Vethanayagam’s mission. As Director, Global Quality Control at Apotex Inc., a Toronto-based pharmaceutical company that specializes in generic drugs, he manages teams of technical professionals. The company sells its products in about 115 countries. Mr. Vethanayagam works to ensure the products manufactured by Apotex and its partners are of high quality, effective and comply with regulations and Good Manufacturing Practices. He did three semesters as a co-op student with the company before being hired as a quality control chemist in 2005. Since then, he’s held progressive leadership roles and has made presentations to international conferences.
