Craig DeLarge, until yesterday, Global Leader, Multichannel Marketing Strategy & Innovation at Merck, announced his departure from the pharmaceutical industry on his Facebook timeline.

"Yesterday," said Craig, 'was my last day as ‪#‎Global‬ Leader, MCM ‪#‎Strategy‬ & ‪#‎Innovation‬ at ‪#‎Merck‬. It has been a good, highly developmental & productive 2 years at the '‪#‎leadership‬ school', I have fondly come to refer to Merck as. I am grateful for the leaders who brought me in, and the colleagues I co-developed and co-created with during my tenure.

"Moving on, I am furthering my practice in the areas of ‪#‎digitalhealthcare‬, ‪#‎changeleadership‬ and ‪#‎mentalhealth‬ outcomes. I will be taking time to explore how I can best contribute my leadership, ‪#‎creativity‬ and management in these areas in either freelance, ‪#‎consulting‬ or organizational leadership contexts.

"In particular, I will be focusing on a ‪#‎sabbatical‬ research project to map 'digital mental health' over the next 4 months as this brings together my expertise in digital health and my interest in mental health, related to my ‪#‎NAMI‬ Board work. I offer my best wishes to my management and colleagues I am leaving behind. I welcome the good wishes and assistance of any who know of opportunities for me to contribute in the three areas I mention above."
