New York, NY (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
Kantar Health, a leading global healthcare consulting firm, has named Jeremy Brody as Executive Vice President, Corporate Development. In his new role, Brody will lead Kantar Health’s partnerships and acquisitions activities as well as continue to oversee the firm’s strategy for incorporating digital and mobile into its research programs.
Brody is based near Tel Aviv, Israel—dubbed Silicon Wadi due to its high concentration of technology and medical companies—giving him access to companies at the forefront of the latest big data and healthcare technology trends.
“Jeremy is passionate about bringing technology-based innovations to Kantar Health’s portfolio,” Global CEO Lynnette Cooke said. “During his time with Kantar Health, he has pursued partnerships with established and start-up companies and helped integrate them into our business. Jeremy’s expertise in building businesses and his relentless pursuit to find companies that will deliver on Kantar Health’s growth strategy are invaluable.”
Brody, a health industry veteran, will focus on identifying industry partners that complement and expand Kantar Health’s industry-leading portfolio of research and consulting services, including life sciences marketing research, health economics and outcomes, market access and safety surveillance.
“I’m excited to be taking on this challenging role, especially related to forming partnerships with complementary companies in the pharma and healthcare industries,” Brody said. “Whether a company has been around for many years, or simply a start-up with an idea, I want to explore how we can partner with them to develop data sources and offers that will help our clients improve patient outcomes.”
Brody was a co-founder of Jstreetdata.com, a web-based medical market research company that was acquired by NFO Worldgroup, now part of Kantar. He holds a Master’s in Health Policy Management from the Harvard School of Public Health and a Bachelor’s in Psychology from New York University.
