Diego Forero brings to Tearfund a desire to do more to address the realities of poverty and injustice. He began his medical career working in poor villages in his native Colombia, an experience that would influence the trajectory of his social commitments.
Currently, Diego Forero is the Vice-President, Global Marketing Lead of Hospital Business at Pfizer, Inc. He studied to become a medical doctor in Bogotá at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and earned a marketing management specialty at Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano. He then obtained an M.B.A. from INALDE Business School - Universidad de la Sabana.
With more than 23 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, Diego’s professional background ranges from new product planning, portfolio management, strategy and business intelligence, marketing and commercial regional and global leadership roles, country manager, and working across multiple geographies, covering developed and emerging markets.
Diego grew up aware of the privilege he enjoyed in his context; he would ask his father why he had opportunity and others did not. This realization created within him a commitment to make a significant impact for social good.
As a Board Director, Diego will offer his experience and expertise as a private volunteer, not as a representative of Pfizer. He looks forward to serving Tearfund, and hopes this role will allow him to give back and create opportunity for others.
