Campbell Alliance Ranks Third on Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50

November 5, 2004

— Leading Management Consulting Firm Continues Strong Growth in Serving Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries —

Campbell Alliance, the leading management consulting firm specializing in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, today announced the firm has received the Triangle Business Journal’s 2004 Fast 50 Award. The firm placed third on the list, also winning for the third consecutive year.

John Campbell, chief executive officer of Campbell Alliance, accepted the award last night at a reception honoring this year’s recipients. The annual Fast 50 Award recognizes the 50 fastest-growing private companies in North Carolina’s Research Triangle, based on the percentage of revenue growth and revenue dollar growth over the past three years. The Research Triangle area comprises Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and industry-dense Research Triangle Park, N.C.

"Since founding Campbell Alliance in 1997, we have maintained a very high rate of growth, expanding our range of service offerings and the size of our team every year," said Campbell. "In part, we’ve been successful because we’ve maintained consistently high levels of customer satisfaction, even during times of aggressive growth. That’s a difficult challenge for many companies. Our ability to remain flexible, recognize the needs of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and specialize in critical areas has significantly added to our success."

During 2003 and 2004, the firm continued its steep growth path, expanding beyond its Raleigh-based headquarters and adding offices in northern New Jersey and southern California. The firm also greatly enhanced the specialized capabilities of its five pharma-focused practice areas: Brand Management, Business Development, Clinical Development, Managed Markets, and Sales.

Campbell continued," we are proud to have continually improved our ranking on the Fast 50 moving from #39 in 2002, up to #28 in 2003, and now landing at #3 this year based on an approximately 30% jump in revenue. Looking ahead, we plan to increase our number of specialized practice areas and may add a fourth office location in the U.S. We hope to make 2005 another record year at Campbell Alliance."
