“I enjoy working at Novasecta as we take on the most challenging issues that senior leaders in the pharma and biotech industries are facing. We add value by working in partnership with our clients and providing creative, bespoke solutions to their challenges. We challenge each other at the same time as focusing on creating an enjoyable work environment. The work-life balance is a reality here - we don’t just pay lip service to it. We all perform better when there’s time to relax with family and friends and pursue interests outside work.”
John leads projects to enable pharma and biotech clients to address their biggest strategic issues across the value chain, with a focus on corporate strategy, commercial due diligence, R&D transformation, and go-to-market strategy.
He started his career as a life sciences strategy consultant with global consulting firms, IMS Consulting Group (now IQVIA) and Charles River Associates, where he worked on a range of projects, including product and portfolio strategy, growth strategy, and commercial due diligence. At Charles River Associates, he played a major role in growing its European life sciences strategy practice, before moving to Cancer Research UK, the world’s leading independent charity dedicated to cancer research. As the Head of Research Strategy and Evaluation, he led a team to support senior leadership with strategic planning and evaluation across the charity’s research portfolio.
