Norbert Leinfellner has been with Fresenius Medical Care in Concord, California, since 2015. He is responsible for the development and lifecycle management of dialysis delivery systems such as hemodialysis machines and peritoneal dialysis home care devices.
Prior to joining Fresenius, Norbert worked as Program Manager at other medical device companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, most recently at Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc. in Dublin, California, for the development of devices in the Carl Zeiss Retina Diagnostics product line. Norbert holds a PhD in Physics from Technical University Graz, Austria.
Norbert has a long history in passionately implementing cultural change at companies which are increasingly challenged to deliver value in a rapidly changing market. The corner stones of such a cultural change include the implementation of effective project management and the transformation to a matrix organization that promotes ownership, transparency and clear roles & responsibilities.
During his spare time, Norbert enjoys trail running at the Pacific Coast and in the Sierra Nevada. He has completed many ultra-marathons, some of them as long as hundred miles.
