June 16, 2006



Campbell Alliance, the leading management consulting firm specializing in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, today announced that CEO John Campbell has won Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur Of The Year 2006 Award in the Health Science category.  Mr. Campbell was selected from several hundred nominees and 30 finalists in North and South Carolina, many of whom were recognized at a special 20th anniversary celebration event at the Westin in Charlotte, North Carolina. 


The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program recognizes the leaders and visionaries who are creating and building world-class businesses.  Awards are given to entrepreneurs who have demonstrated excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. 


“It’s truly an honor to receive this award and humbling to be chosen from among some of the top executives in the health sciences industry.  As we approach our firm’s 10-year anniversary, the Ernst & Young award is also recognition of our employees’ hard work and diligence over the past decade, and we look forward to continuing our strong service to the pharmaceutical and biotech industries,” stated Campbell. 


John Campbell founded Campbell Alliance in 1997 after identifying a need for strategic consulting with clinical expertise and business insight.  Under his leadership, he has transformed Campbell Alliance from a single-employee operation to a nationally recognized company with 135 employees in six offices around the US and a year-over-year growth in excess of 40 percent.


The award recipients acknowledged in the Carolinas are eligible for consideration for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2006 national program.  An annual awards event will be held on November 18, 2006 in Palm Springs, California to announce award recipients in several national categories, as well as the overall national Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year award winner, who will then be considered   for the world event held in Monte Carlo.
