Company overview

The merger of Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD) with Schering Plough in 2009 brought together two leading and successful companies. With clearly defined core values and standards, their rigorous approach to marketing science, combined with creative flair, integrity and their use of innovative technologies pushes boundaries in the industry. The success of Remicade speaks volumes for their business acumen, yet running parallel to their commercial and entrepreneurial vision, they have sought out and supported initiatives that foster disease education, prevention and treatment, and promote sustainable access to medicines, vaccines and quality health care.

Judges' comments

"MSD not only impressed the judges with their double-digit growth in 2009 and their leading-edge marketing, but also for their willingness to learn from each other as the expertise within both companies came together."

"Individually they were highly regarded companies - together they are one of the industry's marketing powerhouses."
