Palo Alto/Princeton/Lucerne, 13 February 2017.  In addition to celebrating its 25th company anniversary this year, INOVIS builds out its leadership position in the CI industry with the addition of two experienced, competent, driven, and talented professionals to the company - a continued key quality differentiator which will help shape the future of the firm and the CI industry.

First, INOVIS is proud to announce today that it has appointed a senior-level executive from Mylan as its new Senior Director of Key Accounts. She has over 23 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. She joins us from Mylan where she most recently held the position of Global Therapeutic Area Head Women's Health. Throughout her career, she has held a number of leadership roles in global marketing, commercial, and business intelligence at major pharmaceutical companies such as Abbott, Solvay Pharmaceuticals, and Ferring. She has extensive experience in multiple therapeutic categories and across several continents. She holds an MBA from Pfeiffer University in North Carolina, USA and a BA from Lawrence University in Wisconsin.

In her new role at INOVIS, she is responsible for key strategic client relationships among INOVIS' pharma, biotech and medical device clients. She reports to Dr. Baljit Singh, Managing Director and Partner in INOVIS' Global Pharmaceuticals and Life Sciences Division based in Lucerne, Switzerland.

INOVIS is equally proud to announce the appointment of Kathleen Dean as Senior Director of Strategic Client Services in INOVIS' IT CI division. Kathleen joins INOVIS from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), where she most recently served as a world-wide product marketing manager, driving software content marketing strategy and product evangelization. Prior, she was a senior insights manager at HPE, responsible for delivering actionable customer, market, and competitive analysis for business strategy and planning. Previously, Kathleen served in various marketing and program roles in the software business at Hewlett-Packard (HP). She has more than 16 years of experience in the IT industry and holds an MS in Technical Communications from Colorado State University. Kathleen will proactively manage strategic client relationships and further optimize the continuing INOVIS tradition of exceeding client expectations. She reports to Marc Limacher, INOVIS' Founder and CEO.

Both appointments are part of INOVIS' future growth strategy aimed at improving competitive strategies for our clients through experienced senior industry talent who can enable further strategic thinking with impact on company and brand strategies. Furthermore, INOVIS' unique Client Strategy and Experience Optimization (CSEO) process is aimed at maximizing each client's collaboration and partnership experience with INOVIS to achieve the highest possible ROI, which in turns fosters long-term, decade-long client CI partnerships. The broader reorganization emphasizes Limacher's and Singh's commitment to continue to be at the forefront of the CI industry. "We're excited to have professionals of Dawn's and Kathleen's talent and experience join our global team, allowing us to continue to set the CI industry standard for excellence & innovation," says Marc Limacher, INOVIS' Founder & CEO.
