“I founded Novasecta because I felt that clients deserved better than anything the consulting industry was offering at the time. I built a team for our clients that now does the best strategy consulting available. For me, best means first a deep and experience-based insight into the dynamics of the pharma/biotech sector, and second a lifelong dedication to the consulting craft of finding thoughtful, creative, bespoke and above all practical solutions for each of our unique and special clients.”
John is responsible for the development of the firm and the successful delivery of many of its client projects. He has helped pharmaceutical, biotech and medical technology companies of all sizes and geographies address their most complex strategic and cultural challenges across R&D, commercial and corporate development disciplines. Prior to founding Novasecta, John held Partner or Principal positions in three global consulting firms, Analysis Group, Strategic Decisions Group, and Deloitte Haskins & Sells. He has also been an executive board member of two start-up biotechs from the University of Cambridge.
