CANTON, Mass. (PRWEB) February 16, 2015
The Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals (ASAP), the world’s leading professional association dedicated to the practice of alliance management, announced that Terry Herring, president of commercial operations at Mission Pharmacal, will speak at the forthcoming 2015 ASAP Global Alliance Summit March 2-5 at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Fla. The San Antonio, Texas-based global pharmaceutical company recently joined ASAP as a global member.
Herring will explore the topic of how “Partnering to Diversify Yields Rapid Growth” in his Wednesday morning, March 4, presentation. “Many companies will put self-imposed boundaries and say, ‘we can’t do things that way.’ Well, why can’t you?” said Herring, who joined the 68-year-old family-owned Mission six years ago. “At Mission, we’ve broken down internal and external boundaries and created a unique business structure. Partnering has allowed Mission to diversify products, markets, and services—and achieve double-digit annual revenue growth.”
“ASAP is pleased to welcome Terry Herring to the stage at the 2015 Global Alliance Summit—and delighted to announce that Mission Pharmacal has joined ASAP as a global member,” said Michael Leonetti, president and CEO of ASAP. “Mission is an entrepreneurial and collaborative company that harnesses partnering to identify unmet patient needs, find market niches, and rapidly deliver innovative solutions. In the best tradition of the ASAP community, Mission’s president of consumer operations now is sharing his company’s experiences with others in order to build the shared knowledge and practices of the entire alliance management community.”
Describing the decision to join ASAP as “a no-brainer,” Bennett Kennedy, senior vice president of corporate development and business strategy, oversees partnering and alliance management at Mission Pharmacal. “One key reason we joined ASAP as a global member is that we’re continually searching for like-minded individuals and companies with clean and efficient business and partnering models either through Mission Pharmacal or our wholly owned subsidiaries – BioComp Pharmaceuticals, Mission’s generic company or Alamo Pharma Services which provides Contract Sales and other commercial operational support services,” Kennedy explained. “We are pleased to build new relationships, to share what we’ve learned, and to learn from the wealth of knowledge and experience shared by other ASAP members within and outside of the pharmaceutical industry.”
Mission Pharmacal utilizes its ASAP membership in a number of ways. Mission alliance managers obtain and maintain certification in current alliance management practices and methodologies. Mission sends its leaders and alliance professionals to present at and participate in global ASAP events such as the annual ASAP Global Alliance Summit. In addition, as an ASAP Global Member, Mission has access to benefits, including:
- ASAP’s library of alliance management case studies, white papers, research, practice guides, and webinars
- Additional training from top alliance management instructors
- Leading events in alliance management, such as the ASAP Global Alliance Summit, ASAP BioPharma Conference, regional chapter events, and ASAP Netcast Webinar Series
- ASAP’s editorial assets including Strategic Alliance Magazine, the ASAP eNews monthly newsletter, and ASAP’s blog (ASAP eNews and Strategic Alliance Magazine are complimentary benefits of ASAP membership.)
- Complimentary job postings at the ASAP Job Board
