Vicky Cory Reflects on Eight Years of “Astonishing Growth” at Intouch
Intouch’s Group Account Director, Vicky Cory, talks about her career with the company and what she sees for the future.
Tell us about your first week at Intouch
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect in my first week. At the time, we were a very small company and my manager was getting married, so she wasn’t there. I actually ended up doing a lot of proofreading in the first week. As things progressed, work started to come my way more and more. By the end of my first week, I was digesting a whole lot of information regarding clients, drugs, the FDA, etc.
What is the most dramatic change you have witnessed during your time at Intouch?
The growth has just been astonishing. It truly feels like we are doubling in size every year. There were fewer than 60 associates when I started, so the office dynamic is quite a bit different now. When I first started, everyone knew everything about each other. Because of the small size, people were asked to wear a lot of different hats day-to-day to get the job done. Today, people have more defined roles within the company.
What is the most exciting project you’ve worked on?
It’s hard to narrow it down to one, but one of my favorites was an RA (rheumatoid arthritis) Home tool we created. It was really cool. It was a virtual house designed to allow a patient to “walk” through it, and each room they entered had tips on how to live better day-to-day with RA. It really was a unique tool that helped patients learn how to manage their condition.
What do you like the most about working at Intouch?
Definitely the people. Intouch is a group of extremely smart individuals. I feel like I learn something new from my colleagues every day. It’s amazing. I really do feel like I have gotten smarter and grown during my time working at Intouch.
Where do you see Intouch and the industry as a whole in 15 years?
It’s tough to tell where this industry is going. Intouch and the pharmaceutical industry keep coming up with new and innovative ways to help people, and I really don’t see that stopping. Intouch will constantly be developing new ideas, services and devices to give clients and patients exactly what they want and need.
What is your favorite pop culture from 1999?
For me, 1999 was the year of a ton of great movies. The Matrix, Notting Hill and Fight Club are just a few that I love.
