Enzo Cangiolini:

I am happy to provide reference about Ernst Kreischer, long lasting colleague at Allergan and AMO from 1999 to 2010.

Ernst joined Allergan in 1999 as the Finance Director for the Cataract Business in Europe. I learned him as a European Marketing Manager in the same Division. Together, after the spin off from Allergan in 2002, we moved to Advanced Medical Optics in positions with increased responsibility.

He has been instrumental to the creation of the new company and to successfully organize the EMEA Region. In fact his area of responsibility was firstly extended to APAC Region to later become VP of Finance for the global Cataract Business of the group. In his global role he travelled a lot between Germany, Tokyo , Singapore and spent many weeks of the year at the headquarter of the corporation in California.

In my role of VP EMEA Cataract Business I had the chance to often interact with Ernst in recurrent business reviews , and several other meetings. We have been also members of the Senior Leadership Team. He was a key contributor to the strong success of AMO Cataract Business both at European and Global level being able to conjugate a clear focus on financial targets with an entrepreneurial vision to develop business opportunities.

I really enjoyed working with him . He was not only a very competent and fair colleague, appreciated by all Team, but also someone which contributed to create a positive and trustworthy working environment.

At personal level I could say that Ernst is a very nice person which I have also appreciated going golfing and having a beer together.I would certainly recommend Ernst as a valuable contributor of whatever Team and I would be happy to provide further references .
