Experience Urgo internationally

Since 2011, the URGO Group has banked on international business in its development strategy. It now generates half of its turnover outside France.


Our presence in 20 countries through subsidiaries or strategic partnerships allows us to offer our staff a variety of career paths.

Thibault Auriault

Strategic Project Coordinator

I joined URGO in 2019 as part of an international business placement as a Business Development Manager for the Asia region. Based in Vietnam, I was in charge of developing the exports for the region, identifying market opportunities, meeting our distributors and carrying out negotiations with our business partners. This was an extremely rich experience from a professional, personal and cultural point of view: before Covid arrived, I could be travelling to three or four countries a month!
I wanted to continue my international URGO adventure and this time join a Group subsidiary directly to incorporate a management aspect into my work. I joined the Colombian subsidiary in February 2022 as Strategic Project Coordinator. I very quickly became integrated into the team, the managers quickly gave me more responsibilities and my team has expanded in the space of a few months.


Geoffrey De Ram

Global Brand Manager

I’ve been working for the URGO Group for eight years already and I’ve had the chance to be able to change on a regular basis, whether in terms of responsibility, product range, distribution channel or location! I joined URGO for my end-of-studies work placement as an international assistant product manager at Laboratoires Urgo Healthcare in Dijon. I then went off on an international business placement to the dynamic Belgian subsidiary, then I continued my experience on site with a local contract for a year and a half. As a pharmacist, I then wanted to move closer to the medical and scientific domain, and I therefore benefited from a pathway to Urgo Medical. After two years as Brand Manager for compression products in France, I wanted to rediscover an international dimension again and I was able to seize an opportunity to become Global Brand Manager on the infection range, a post that has allowed me to work with our teams in numerous countries again.


Nicolas Phéline

Senior Product Manager

At the end of my business school studies, I was looking for a dynamic company in the pharma sector that included an international dimension, so as to have the opportunity to go to work abroad during my career. URGO was an obvious choice! I began with one year in LUH’s Incubator Programme, which consists in gaining experience on the ground as a travelling salesperson. I then joined the Business Development team based in Dijon. I spent three years there and participated in the launch of some fifteen products. I continued my adventure at Laboratoire Urgo Healthcare as International Market Manager for the Benelux, MEA and Germany regions for a year and a half. This international operations post enabled me to gain a big-picture view of the issues faced by the subsidiaries. On the strength of this experience, I joined Urgo Healthcare’s Belgian subsidiary in September 2022 as Senior Product Manager in charge of three of the laboratory’s brands.



Head of Digital and E-commerce

Mobility is strongly encouraged within the Group. I joined the Group 14 years ago, starting by working for Laboratoires Juva Santé. I was then able to benefit from two international experiences: as Country Manager in Turkey and then General Manager in Belgium. In 2021, I left Belgium for a new challenge: setting up the “Urgo Healthcare digital tripod” team, working on developing e-commerce and new levers for digital activation.
