John Campbell Named a Finalist for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards for Second Straight Year

May 16, 2005

Campbell Alliance, the leading management consulting firm specializing in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, today announced that CEO John Campbell has been named a finalist for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year (EOY) Awards for the second straight year.  Mr. Campbell was selected from several hundred nominees in North and South Carolina.

 “As a finalist this year, I am both honored and humbled to be placed alongside a group of innovators in both the pharmaceutical and consulting arenas,” Campbell stated.


Mr. Campbell founded Campbell Alliance in 1997 after recognizing an underserved niche market for a strategic consulting firm with in-depth understanding of the pharmaceutical and biotech industry and its related business functions.  Since that time, Campbell Alliance has experienced year-over-year growth in excess of 40%.  Now with over 100 employees in four U.S. locations, Campbell Alliance has an active client list of over 50 pharmaceutical and biotech companies from around the globe.


“This year we’ve already grown to include a new office in New York City and crossed significant milestones in terms of revenue and headcount,” Campbell continued.  “As a firm, we’re looking forward to the remainder of 2005, as we’re likely to add two or three additional locations as well as new service offerings.”


As the first truly global award program of its kind, Ernst & Young’s EOY awards celebrate individuals who are building and leading successful, growing, and dynamic businesses.  The entrepreneurs are recognized through regional, national, and global awards in more than 150 cities and 35 countries.


Thirty finalists were selected for the Carolinas EOY awards this year.  The finalists will be honored at a black-tie awards banquet on Thursday, June 16 at the Westin Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the final award recipients will be announced.  For more information, please visit
