In this podcast, Heidrick & Struggles’ Claudia Schneider speaks with Livia Freudl, senior vice president and head of human resources at Varian, a radiation oncology treatment and software maker headquartered in Palo Alto, California, and now a Siemens Healthineers company. Freudl shares her insights on how Varian’s people strategy has evolved since Varian's acquisition and how she has been driving full integration while maintaining both company cultures. The key to success, she says, is to stay open and curious. She also shares her perspective on the differences in leadership between Europe and the United States.
