Campbell Alliance Announces Executive Promotions and Organizational Changes

RALEIGH, N.C., Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Campbell Alliance, an inVentiv Health company and the leading management consulting firm specializing in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, today announced executive promotions and organizational changes that were effective September 1, 2011.

Earlier today, Campbell Alliance announced that Nader Naeymi-Rad, formerly Chief Operating Officer, will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer.  The firm is also making a range of additional changes to help drive the firm's growth.  

"As a high-growth company, we are constantly looking for ways to better align our executive management team to support the firm's vision and growth needs.  Our vision is to become a recognized 'best in class' firm while maintaining strong double-digit, year-over-year growth.  The changes we're announcing today are designed to help us achieve those goals," stated Mr. Naeymi-Rad.  

The additional changes include the following:

  • Darius Naigamwalla, formerly Practice Area Leader, Brand Management Practice, will assume the role of Managing Director, North America.  In his new role, Mr. Naigamwalla will assume responsibility for managing the firm's consulting operations across all of its geographic regions in North America.  

According to Mr. Naeymi-Rad, "This move is a clear validation of the regional structure that we adopted two years ago.  It has helped us achieve significant growth in our key accounts, while reducing out-of-town travel for our consultants and related expenses for our clients.  With over 10 years of experience at Campbell Alliance, and a proven track record of success, I am 100% confident in Darius' ability to lead and grow our North American consulting operations."

  • Ashwin Dandekar, formerly Regional General Manager, New York, will assume the role of Practice Area Leader, Brand Management Practice.  

"A trained physician, Ashwin has been with the firm for more than eight years.  Ashwin is an innovator and has been instrumental in building the Brand Management Practice from the ground up.  In particular Ashwin has made invaluable contributions to the Practice's two largest offerings:  the Launch Playbook™ (launch planning and management) and Innovation2Value™ (commercial planning) service lines.  Brand Management is our largest practice area, and no one is better qualified to lead it," said Mr. Naeymi-Rad.

  • Mark Bethers, formerly Vice President, Human Resources, will assume the role of Executive Vice President, Internal Operations.  In his new role, Mr. Bethers will assume leadership of key internal functions at Campbell Alliance, including Legal, Finance, Information Technology, Project Services, Human Resources, Recruiting, Training, Facilities, and Administration.  

According to Mr. Naeymi-Rad, "Mark has a unique background, which has proven particularly valuable to our firm.  A CPA for the past 17 years, he began his career in professional services with a 'Big 4' public accounting firm before continuing on to hold a range of senior-level finance and human resources positions in large and midsize biopharmaceutical companies and pharmaceutical services firms.   As our Vice President of Human Resources for the past three years, Mark has proven to be highly pragmatic, an extraordinarily strategic thinker, and a visionary from an organizational standpoint.  He'll bring that kind of vision to his new, much-expanded role."

  • Craig Dunkley, formerly Vice President, Marketing, will assume the title of Chief Marketing Officer.  Mr. Dunkley is responsible for marketing Campbell Alliance's services to the pharmaceutical and biotech industry.  He and his team are responsible for branding, thought leadership, public and media relations, sales support, and marketing operations.  

Mr. Naeymi-Rad added, "Our approach to marketing is strategic, systematic, and ROI-focused.  The marketing machine Craig has built over the last ten years works extremely well.   We're excited about the new initiatives we're conducting this year related to thought leadership, and we're also in the midst of a major brand update initiative, which will be completed this year.  Craig's contributions in these and other areas are simply remarkable and warrant his promotion to CMO. "

Each of these positions will report directly to the CEO, Mr. Naeymi-Rad.  He added, "These changes are incredibly exciting for the firm.  Not only are they the right changes to help drive our continued growth, they are also shining examples of Campbell Alliance's meritocracy in action.  As a group, the average tenure of these executives is eight years with the firm.  They have played key roles in our growth, they have demonstrated incredible commitment to the firm, and they have always delivered.  These promotions are richly deserved, and I can't think of a group of leaders who is better suited to help guide Campbell Alliance into the future."
