Both sales organizations will report in to Jake Brandman, Teva VP of Domestic Sales.
Great Pacific Sales is lead by two senior and experienced sales reps, Tom Caldwell and Marisa Klein.

â€œI am confident that Steve’s experience mixed with his strong desire to reignite Teva will result in renewed strength for the brand in the Mid-Atlantic.â€ â€“ continues Brandman.
