McKesson Corporation celebrated the opening of a new office location in Vilnius, Lithuania for its McKesson Europe business. The new McKesson Business Services site, which recently began operations in the city centre, will advance McKesson Europe’s strategic growth initiatives and position the company to successfully compete in the healthcare market of the future.
The ceremonial event was attended by members of McKesson’s executive team, including Britt Vitalone (EVP & Chief Financial Officer, McKesson Corporation), Kevin Kettler (Chairman, McKesson Europe) and Alain Vachon (Chief Financial Officer, McKesson Europe), together with Lithuania representatives Virginijus Sinkevičius (Minister of the Economy and Innovation of the Republic of Lithuania), Remigijus Šimašius (Mayor of Vilnius) and Mantas Katinas (Managing Director of Invest Lithuania).
Initially focusing on financial services, McKesson Business Services will address the needs of evolving healthcare by improving the speed, efficiency and quality of the company’s finance operations, while providing an exceptional work environment for its employees. McKesson will be located at the “Business Stadium” – a multifunctional business complex located in the city centre of Vilnius.
“During our site visits in Vilnius we met with local government authorities, recruitment and labour market experts, and held engaging and productive discussions. We are excited to establish our presence in Vilnius and are confident in its contribution to the future success of our company”, said Alain Vachon, CFO McKesson Europe.
“The team at Invest Lithuania is privileged to have had the opportunity to work with the experienced and visionary team at McKesson. We feel that the company and Lithuania are a natural fit as we share the same values – a striving for excellence in everything we do and a commitment to producing only the best results”, said General Manager at Invest Lithuania Mantas Katinas.
