Carmen Nitsche

I'm Carmen Nitsche

I have spent the last 13 years in business development, database operations and corporate development for publishers and scientific software companies serving the pharmaceuticals, chemicals and academic markets. Throughout this time I developed and executed on business unit strategies, managed partner relationships with C-level executives, established and managed extensive alliance partner networks, and carried out numerous merger & acquisition evaluations and negotiations. I am a chemist by training, and started out as a chemical information professional at Nalco Chemical Co.. I am a member of the American Chemical Society (Chemical Information Division), the Special Libraries Association and Sigma Xi. I have spoken at NFAIS, ACS-CINF, and ICIC and have recently completed co-authoring the chapter “Tying it all together: Information management for practicing chemists” with Steven Bachrach (Trinity University) for the upcoming ACS book “Future of the History of Chemical Information.”
