Head of International Strategies & Policies, IVF-Spain, Spain
Inge Kormelink was born in the Netherlands and started her professional education at the University of Applied Sciences, obtaining her BBA in Economics; specialising in International Marketing, and graduated cum laude. In addition she obtained 3 Master Degree’s in International Management at the “Ecole superior de commerce” Business University in France, Digital Marketing at the Alicante University in Spain and an additional Master in Strategic Management.
After completing her studies she went on to work for several multinational companies and start-ups, before starting her current role at IVF-Spain in 2012. As Head of Strategies & Policies in a top 10 fertility clinic, she directs and manages commercial policy; creates marketing and communication plans and is responsible for monitoring market trends and developments.
Despite heavy competition with over 250 fertility clinics in Spain alone, Inge has introduced IVF Spain into 10 European countries; increasing its market share substantially to become one of the main players in the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) field in less than five years. Inge has forged strong relationships and developed collaborative work with leading clinics and stakeholders within the European fertility field which have been built on solid marketing and effective online strategies. As a consequence IVF Spain is now recognised as a leader in its field; a perfect example of a growing fertility clinic offering a high standard of patient care combined with cutting edge technology and treatment provided by experienced and qualified professionals.
Inge’s contribution to the evolution of IVF Spain has been substantial in a relatively short period – she has developed influential, sustainable and positive collaborations with professionals; promoted the high standard of care and support offered to patients and generated substantial new income streams in markets across Europe. This has enabled IVF Spain to become one of the most dynamic and recognised leaders in its field.
