Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) July 19, 2013
Alexander Proudfoot Company (http://www.alexanderproudfoot.com) announces the appointment of Richard Denness as Executive Vice President for its Life Sciences Practice. Denness, a recognised industry leader further strengthens the firm’s fast-growing practice.
Luiz Carvalho, Chief Executive Officer said “Richard’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge makes him a key addition to the Alexander Proudfoot family, as we look to further develop our offerings to companies across this important sector. Richard is a leading Life Sciences expert with over 24 years of in depth and wide ranging experience. I am confident his appointment will strengthen our ability to deliver significant improvements to companies throughout the sector.”
The Life Sciences sector is an industry in transformation. Following years of growth, companies now face a new era and one distinguished by a changing healthcare landscape, pricing pressures, heightened regulatory scrutiny, increasing alliances and acquisitions as well as expiring patents and increased competition from generics. Companies are under pressure to change—and quickly as they look to meet these challenges head on.
Over the past 67 years, Alexander Proudfoot has been partnering with numerous companies in the sector. However, the current industry challenges will require additional resources. As Executive Vice President for Alexander Proudfoot’s Life Sciences Practice, Denness will lead the firm’s efforts to enhance and expand the services offered to clients across the sector.
A graduate from Missouri State University, he understands the global environment and the challenges facing Life Sciences companies, having worked in Asia-Pacific, Europe, Canada, and the US. He has direct experience of driving revenue, building brands, and greatly improving profitability. He has held various executive leadership roles, including General Manager, Australia and New Zealand with Schering-Plough, President of IVAX Laboratories, Vice President, Managed Care at UCB, Vice President and General Manager of UCB’s Central Nervous System business unit, and CEO of Vycor Medical.
Richard Denness comments “I am excited to start a new challenge within Alexander Proudfoot and look forward to working with the team to further develop Life Sciences. I am fortunate to be joining such a respected company that prides itself on transforming business performance.”
Mr Denness will be based out of Alexander Proudfoot’s Atlanta headquarters.
