What is your primary ​role at Jupiter?
As the CEO and managing partner, I’m responsible for creating and communicating the Vision to our entire team, to our clients and to prospective staff. At Jupiter, our Vision is to become the top firm in this space and I proudly believe that we are well on our way.

 

Describe your relevant experience?
As is the case for most of the Jupiter expert team, I have many years of commercial, pricing and market access experience on both the manufacturer side (Lilly, Merck and Pharmacia) and building successful consulting teams on the supplier side (Cambridge Pharma, IMS, PriceSpective, and ICON). This broad management experience has helped my teams to price many of the top drugs currently in the market, and we have together delivered over 600 projects.

 

What do you love about your experience with Jupiter?
Building a top quality team of rock stars is the most important part of the job and also the most rewarding. We’ve been fortunate to land many extremely experienced professionals to our Jupiter team and together we work together to build for the future.

 

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
You’ll typically find me spending time with my family at one of our base locations in the Florida Keys or the Idaho Mountains. We all love the outdoors and frequently play tennis, fish, boat and ski.

What is your primary ​role at Jupiter?
My role is to develop and work with a team of very talented consultants who consistently provide excellent support to clients with complicated questions.  To achieve this, I also help provide a structure that will allow the team to grow the reputation and value of Jupiter.  It’s a very invigorating role based on mutual learning – from my past experience, from our clients, from my colleagues, from successes and challenges – with the goal of evolving in anticipation of future needs.  It’s a role within a conscious, growing organism.

 

Describe your relevant experience?
Everything I’ve done up to now is relevant to how I approach what we do – from working at and running different consultancies focused on value and access, to my time with Pfizer, to where I studied and lived.  Apart from working on hundreds of projects, it’s important to mention that I used to save whales.

 

What do you love about your experience with Jupiter?
If you consider the role I described above, I’d say it’s nice to be part of a conscious, growing organism along with the very skilled colleagues I have here.  I also like diversity, and I have a range of things in front of me on a daily basis:  different clients, different disease states, different challenges, and then there’s the spectrum of issues in business management and growth that I also get to focus on – it’s not boring.

 

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Learning from and helping colleagues, and focusing on how to evolve Jupiter.  Outside of work I’m most likely spending as much time with my family as possible, whether that’s making breakfast, walking to school, enjoying San Francisco (the North Bay), or planning and taking trips to other fun places where there’s good food.
