Christopher Kutyla, Master of Economics, MBA 
President, Network Lite

Chris Kutyla is an innovative leader in global supply chain optimization. He has 30+ years of experience in global supply chain, manufacturing and distribution management in the Pharmaceutical industry including API strategic sourcing and manufacturing. While working for large pharma companies such as Pfizer and Schering Plough, Chris designed and implemented supply chain and marketing strategies and tools for key major brands such as Lipitor, Viagra and Lyrica allowing these brands to stay competitive even in their late life cycle. 

One of the key areas designed, developed and put in place was cost management system and cost modeling allowing Chris to accurately estimate cost of making a tablet and to put that knowledge into programs that drove aspects of life cycle of each molecule and helped in improving top and bottom line. This knowledge could be also applied outside of a particular company and used in the larger programs that evolve around healthcare and affordable medicines.

While working for smaller pharma companies such as Watson and Par, Chris worked on enhancing their business positions by improving product availability and designing and implementing prudent inventory and unique cost management programs. Chris found that focusing on sales and costs not only extends the profitable period of each molecule but also frees up funds to invest in people, strengthen processes and systems and ultimately provides the ability to compete.

This background enables Network Lite to provide tools and techniques to get the most out of their clients’ supply chain.
