“It’s a distinct honor to serve this industry, and in doing so, help physicians and pharma companies navigate changing times to improve life and patient outcomes,” said Dan Fitzgerald. “I am immensely grateful for this honor, but the real accolades should go to our highly committed employees and to customers, as well as our healthcare professionals, and partners for their unwavering devotion to improving the lives of so many.”
The PM360 ELITE Awards were established in 2015 to recognize individuals who have made a significant impact on the healthcare industry throughout their careers. More than 500 submissions were received and nominees were evaluated and selected by the PM360 editorial staff based on their accomplishments; testimonials from their bosses, clients, and colleagues; and supporting evidence that reflects the impact of their efforts. A total of 100 winners were selected across 19 categories.
“As the pandemic surged across the globe in 2020, all eyes were on the healthcare and life sciences industries in search for answers, treatments, vaccines, and hope—and the very best in our industry were able to deliver all of that,” says Anna Stashower, CEO and Publisher of PM360. “While every year our ELITE winners demonstrate the power of the life sciences to impact lives, this year’s winners had to do so by overcoming unprecedented challenges in record times. Their incredible work helped to navigate HCPs, patients, and doctors through this pandemic and get us to where we are now as restrictions are slowly being lifted and we start to return to more of the things we love.”
The winners were profiled in PM360’s May 2021 issue. You can read their profiles online at https://www.pm360online.com/the-2021-pm360-elite-100.
