I have a favorite quote from Albert Einstein that exemplifies how I live my life: ‘I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.’ Curiosity is what drives me to deliver for our clients. I ask difficult questions and then lead the way to finding their answers.”

As head of quality at LifeConEx, Nina Heinz works with her team to cover a wide array of quality matters in regulatory compliance, audits, training, partner management, customer complaints and continuous improvement. Nina played a key role in the implementation of the global DHL THERMONET network of GDP-compliant life sciences stations, including the internal DHL THERMONET GDP guidelines, training programs and internal audit certification to ensure full regulatory compliance. As an IRCA Certified Quality Auditor, she is also very active in performing audits at airports worldwide in coordination with the respective handling and airline partners to assess their capabilities in facilitating temperature-sensitive life sciences shipments.
