A senior executive in the Healthcare and Pharma Services industry, Simon brings over 25 years of experience to Abacus Medicine Pharma Services.
His career moved quickly after joining Servier where he became UK Sales Director, before broadening his horizons with a move to Quintiles. He worked with many of the leading pharma manufacturers in global operational and business development roles.
In 2007, he joined Idis to establish the Pharmaceutical Services Division and led on strategy and corporate development for the organisation. Simon and his teams developed a new category of pharmaceutical service that has now become known as Managed Access Programs.
Working in partnership with over 70 pharma and biotech companies, these programs benefited thousands of patients globally who were able to access previously unavailable medicines.
The success of Idis led to an acquisition by Clinigen, where Simon continued as Chief Operating Officer and latterly Chief Strategy Officer.
