Nadia Dac Welcomed as HBA Seattle VP

Nadia brings almost three decades of U.S. and global commercial experience, as well as talent development, from both large and small publicly-traded biopharmaceutical companies. She is currently the Chief Commercial Officer at Omeros. She joined Omeros earlier this year following her most recent role as CCO at Alder, where she built the commercial team to launch Vyepti® in the migraine prevention market, which later was acquired by Lundbeck. Before joining Alder, she served as Vice President of Global Specialty Commercial Development at AbbVie. Prior to AbbVie, Nadia held several roles of increasing responsibility at Novartis, building the commercial organization that successfully launched their Multiple Sclerosis Franchise. Before her time at Novartis, Nadia held several roles, including leading marketing for Biogen’s MS portfolio and for Pfizer’s Alzheimer's team. Previously, she spent several years in positions of increasing responsibility at Johnson & Johnson and Eli Lilly where she started her career “carrying the bag” as a sales rep. Her career has afforded her the opportunity to participate in numerous executive coaching and development programs, including serving as a mentor to developing talent across organizations and within the Seattle HBA Chapter. Outside of work, Nadia enjoys time with her family, including her 3 children. Originally from northern New Jersey, she is an avid skier, boater and yogi, which made moving to the Seattle area, an easy transition.

Her new role, as HBA Seattle VP, allows Nadia to connect talent across companies in the Seattle area and "give back" to the HBA member community what she has received throughout her career - strong development, mentoring, and a place to turn to spark ideas while finding commonalities of experiences.   

The HBA should expect contributions well aligned with the organization’s vision. Specifically, an ability to collaborate with individuals and teams of diverse skills, levels, as well as backgrounds, combined with a passion for developing talent to continue building on the strong momentum in HBA Seattle. 

As someone who believes that both results and people matter in organizations, Nadia is excited to continue fostering the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare through her new role in HBA Seattle.
