John Campbell, president of Raleigh-based Campbell Alliance, has been named a finalist for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. Campbell was selected from several hundred nominees in North and South Carolina.
“I feel honored to be a finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year,” said Campbell. “I know I’m in very distinguished company, and I take pride in this recognition of Campbell Alliance as an innovator in the pharmaceutical industry.”
Campbell Alliance is the leading management consulting firm specializing in the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors. John Campbell founded the firm in 1997, and under his leadership it has become the consulting resource of choice for many industry clients. Currently, Campbell Alliance employs more than 65 people and serves a number of leading pharmaceutical firms based in the US, Europe, and Japan.
During 2002, the company’s revenue nearly doubled. In 2003, the firm’s rapid growth has continued, and Campbell is confident about the future: ”We’ve recently added a New Jersey office to enhance service to clients in the Northeast, and we’re exploring some exciting new service offerings.”
According to Campbell, a large measure of the company’s success is due to its industry focus. “We serve the pharmaceutical and biotech industries exclusively, which means we know every aspect of their business,” he explained. “We have unmatched depth of expertise in the functional areas critical to our clients, such as Managed Care, Brand Management, Business Development, Sales, and Clinical Development. All of which means greater client value, because we’re able to get up to speed on complex problems and deliver results more quickly than less specialized firms.”
Regarding the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, Campbell added, “I cannot take sole credit for my company’s success. The entire Campbell Alliance team has worked hard to establish this firm as an industry leader. I’m grateful for their past efforts—and the effort they expend every day in serving our clients.”
