Meet the ISPE Staff: Matt Lehmann

 Meet the ISPE Staff: Matt Lehmann

In each issue of Pharmaceutical Engineering®, we introduce a member of the ISPE staff who provides ISPE members with key information and services. Meet Matt Lehmann, Custom Training Manager, Professional Development.

Tell us about your role at ISPE: What do you do each day?

Daily, my role typifies ISPE’s tagline: connecting pharmaceutical knowledge, by being part of a team that helps pharma and biotech clients select a custom, privately delivered training course to attain their learning and development goals. Once a course is determined, I contact qualified instructors to see if they are available to deliver the training material on the requested dates.

I also support all aspects of onboarding new instructors and provide a Train-the-Trainer course when they become qualified. I was a training facilitator most of my 28 years in the pharma industry, so I have an affinity for trainers because of my love for helping people learn.

I often network on LinkedIn with potential clients and industry colleagues, informing them on what ISPE offers for professional development, conferences, publications, memberships, and programs.

What do you love about your job?

I love being part of the Professional Development team, supporting organizations to help them meet their training goals, and working alongside trainers who possess incredible knowledge and expertise and are willing to share it.

What do you like to do when you are not at work?

I enjoy spending time with my wife, being involved in church ministries, playing guitar, and traveling.
