Associate Director, HCP Marketing

About Gelesis

At Gelesis, a Boston based startup, our vision is to target the gastrointestinal (GI) tract to treat the genesis of GI-related chronic diseases. Gelesis’ proprietary technology is designed to act mechanically in the GI pathway to potentially alter the course of certain chronic disease. We believe we can empower people to improve and change their diet, lifestyle and health.  Gelesis is a rapidly growing, commercial phase, R&D based innovator that recently brought our first product to market.  You can imagine the energy at our company right now. We are a team of experienced and passionate people creating a company, a culture, a business, and what will be a household name brand all from the ground up.

In April of 2019, Plenity, our first product, was FDA cleared as a prescription device for the largest number of adults struggling with overweight and obesity (BMI 25-40 kg/m2) of any prescription weight-management aid and the first that can be used, along with diet and exercise, in millions of overweight adults who have never before had prescription options

Plenity is breakthrough in weight management.  It is based on a non-systemic superabsorbent hydrogel platform made from naturally derived building blocks that makes people feel full to help them eat less.  Plenity has been proven effective and well tolerated in gold standard, double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trials conducted by leading weight management experts. The publication of the pivotal Gelesis100 Loss of Weight (GLOW) study in Obesity was among the top 10% of all downloaded publications from the journal in the following 12 months and is actively discussed at obesity society meetings.  For more information visit www.Myplenity.com

Plenity is currently available on the market in limited release as we prepare for a national scale launch in2021.  The consumer directed Targeted Commercial Launch has gone exceptionally well.  While a small group of obesity specialists have access to Plenity in their practices now, HCP marketing has not yet begun but will in21.  There are two paths to a Plenity prescription; community-based HCPs and our telehealth partner.  This novel approach is both one of our three critical success factors and one of the more disruptive parts of an innovative Go-to-Market strategy.  To help bring this strategy to life and manage this important customer segment we’re searching for an entrepreneurial and solution-oriented individual to be the first marketer in the organization devoted to HCPs. This role requires both brand building and customer engagement skills.  In addition, the role necessitates both strong strategic skills and the ability to execute, the ability to influence others in the organization, and lead agency partners.   Key deliverable’s will be an HCP interpretation of the consumer brand architecture, the integration of both paths to a Plenity prescription, an omni-channel launch campaign, and a digitally resourced field force.   Ultimately, goals will be based on HCP brand awareness and perceptions, and prescribing volume.

Gelesis was also named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies for 2020.
