Krista Roberts
Vice President - Operations
Noven Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Miami, FL

“I get to interact with others who are passionate about manufacturing – from operators that know every detail about the machine they run, to scientists that discuss processes on a molecular level. Pharmaceutical Manufacturing directly benefits the well-being of patients. I am excited to be a part of this process.”

Krista joined Noven in June 2014, bringing over 16 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. Her demonstrated leadership and personal attributes enable Krista to successfully address the complex challenges of a pharmaceutical manufacturing organization. During the past year, she initiated task groups and challenged methodology around key business initiatives and approaches, such as the implementation of the Operational Excellence Program as a strategy to improve safety, quality, service and cost. Her strategic leadership allowed Noven to achieve an OSHA recordable rate of 0.85 with targeted training, communications and near-miss reporting. 
One of Krista’s primary responsibilities is to serve as a company visionary for manufacturing and operations. Krista has formulated company policies and goals directly related to Noven’s growth. She makes it her mission to be directly accountable in leading Noven’s Operations organization to a level of performance clearly identifiable as best-in-class through the utilization of lean production and process improvement techniques. 
Krista is an excellent role model and mentor for Noven colleagues across the organization. She leads a high performing team that is eager for feedback and ambitiously seeking to surpass previous expectations and achievements. She is committed to creating an environment where team members can realize their full potential. 
As a newcomer to the South Florida area, Krista has embraced her new community and has already become involved with the local United Way organization, as a member of the Women’s Leadership initiative. Previously, while living in Mississippi, Krista was active in a range of efforts including serving on the Board of Directors for the Mississippi Manufacturers Association and as a part of the Mississippi Economic Council Board of Governors working to attract new business to the State of Mississippi.
