Perkins joins Pennside after more than a decade with leading market research firm, GfK. He began his pharma career first as an intern at V2 (acquired by GfK) during his studies at St. Joseph’s University (Philadelphia, PA, United States). He then quickly advanced through the organization to become a Division Manager of GfK’s Swiss arm based in Basel, Switzerland, where he was the key account manager for one of GfK’s top clients.
Perkins brings vast expertise in respiratory conditions (COPD, PAH, Cystic Fibrosis) and previous experience in oncology and hematology.

Previously, he was the project leader for the largest primary market research program ever conducted in Type 2 Diabetes wherein over 6,000 physicians and 10,000 patients from 26 countries provided insights on physician communication and marketing. Publications regarding this Diabetes project will be forthcoming in 2017.
