Bob Chandler, Paul Harrington, Susan Perlbachs and Sydney Rubin Honored by Colleagues and Clients in the Life Sciences Industry

BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- inVentiv Health, a life science knowledge and services company, announced today that four of its senior executives have been named to the prestigious PharmaVOICE 100 list of the most inspiring leaders in the life sciences industry.  The inVentiv executives were selected among hundreds of nominees for outstanding leadership and innovation.

The four winners include Bob Chandler of Chandler Chicco Companies; Paul Harrington of Palio+Ignite; Susan Perlbachs of GSW; and Sydney Rubin of inVentiv Health.  The awards are granted based on nominations submitted by colleagues and clients.

"We congratulate the honorees who embody the kind of deep healthcare expertise and commitment to innovation that has made inVentiv Health an industry leader," said CEO Paul Meister.  "They are an inspiration to their colleagues and a credit to our profession."

inVentiv's winners lead and mentor teams across a global company of 12,000 employees.  Their work spans decades and includes several healthcare disciplines as described in the current edition of PharmaVOICE magazine:

  • Bob Chandler, Chandler Chicco Companies: The inclusion of Bob Chandler on this year's list pays tribute to his life-long mission to improve communications among patients, physicians, insurers and the providers of healthcare products and services. Bob built a new breed of PR agency – a flat agency with an empowered workforce focused on healthcare – which today includes more than 400 staff in New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Frankfurt and Shanghai.  Always ahead of the curve, he envisioned the possibilities of the "activated patient" long before the Internet or talk of patient-centric medicine.  His innovative campaigns armed patients with knowledge about their treatment options, and improved communications between physicians and patients.    
  • Paul Harrington, Palio+IgnitePaul Harrington is transforming the healthcare industry by elevating creativity and building brands with simple, powerful stories.  For more than 25 years, Paul has been producing award-winning creative in both consumer and healthcare accounts, across a wide range of media.  At Palio+Ignite, an advertising agency that fuses art and science with technology and imagination, Paul has worked tirelessly to launch landmark campaigns and bring brands to life.  He is the driving force behind Palio+Ignite's global campaign for the world's first once-weekly treatment for type 2 diabetes, Bydureon. Paul leads the biocoastal Bydureon team, who was named the Brand Team of the Year by Med Ad News.   
  • Susan Perlbachs, GSW: As the executive director at the New York office of GSW, a leading healthcare advertising agency, Susan creates an environment where ideas are king and safe thinking gets squashed fast.  Imbued with a competitive fire and relentless pursuit of the most powerful and perfect story, Susan strives constantly to ensure that the brands she manages succeed in the marketplace.  She brings an array of experience to the role spanning 18 years, and she has enjoyed enormous success over this period with DTP and DTC audiences in areas that range from oncology brands to over-the-counter products.
  • Sydney Rubin, inVentiv Health: Sydney's focus has been to position inVentiv Health as a global operating company with a reputation for excellence.  During her time with inVentiv Health, she designed and developed the first social enterprise-wide intranet to encourage collaboration while also embarking on an external communications campaign that included message development for each of inVentiv's nearly two dozen businesses. Sydney's true passion lies in helping develop the next generation of professional communicators, delivering some of inVentiv's most popular professional development workshops in which she shares both professional skills and her love of language.  

"These trailblazers use their experience and innovative thinking to help our clients navigate an increasingly complex operating, regulatory and reimbursement environment," said Meister.  "We are proud to call them our colleagues."

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software?
