"Anyone who knows our firm will be familiar with Conrad's voice and guidance..."

“The only constant is change.” Tunnell Consulting announced one such change on August 2, 2016, an important milestone in the history of our firm: Conrad J. Heilman, Jr., Ph.D., President, CEO, and Board Chair, has retired from Tunnell Consulting after 16 years with the firm.
During his tenure with Tunnell, Dr. Heilman was instrumental in the growth of the firm, contributing in various consulting and leadership roles as he rose within the firm to President and CEO, a position he held for the past seven years. He oversaw four-fold growth of the firm, including expansion into the Governmental Life Sciences market and the international Life Sciences market.
Dr. Heilman’s background as a virologist/research scientist allowed him to directly relate to many of the firm’s clients on a peer-to-peer level, providing a strong understanding of the science behind the supply chain and manufacturing networks of the firm’s client base, the arena in which Tunnell has excelled. His ability to translate client scientific needs into pragmatic, consulting solutions, helped to make Tunnell Consulting a recognized Life Sciences consultancy.
“My years at Tunnell have been fun, challenging and rewarding in many ways. The numerous relationships I have developed across the Life Sciences industries will continue for my lifetime. However, the time has come for me to refocus on areas of interest that I am passionate about and excel in. So, it’s not time for full retirement, but a time to reinvent in a way that allows me to control my time and spend more time with family. I look forward to seeing Tunnell continue to grow and prosper in years to come with new leadership,” said Dr. Heilman.
“We are deeply appreciative of Conrad’s contributions to building and leading the firm over many years,” notes long-time board member, Alex Moss, who has assumed the role of Board Chair. “Anyone who knows our firm will be familiar with Conrad’s voice and guidance, and our team will be working intensely to step up to the challenge and continue building Tunnell’s reputation for thought leadership and service excellence. We extend our best wishes to Conrad and his family for continued health and success in all future endeavors.”
