Pharmaceutical Executive, Inc.
Pharm Exec's 2011 roster of Emerging Leaders—our fourth to date—is not only a way to recognize a few individuals who've made a difference in their organizations. It also serves as a barometer to track larger changes in the workplace: how work is done; who does it; where, and with what range of skills; and for what outcome or objective. In acknowledgment of our own 30th anniversary as a publication, and with the support of Pharm Exec's Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) and an aggressive Web-based recommendation process, we've selected 30 executives drawn from a range of mission-critical functions, varied geographies, and diverse gender and cultural characteristics. Such backgrounds were unimaginable in the executive ranks of the industry just a few years ago, a fact that suggests Big Pharma today is at least more reflective of the broader sociopolitical environment that has always been crucial to its success.
