The PM Society has appointed Craig Bradley from Shire Pharmaceuticals as the new Chairman. He takes over from Co-chairs Rachel Farrow and Carwyn Jones after their 3 years sharing the role. He will be the first Chairman from the industry in the PM Society’s 40 year history, his predecessors having all been from healthcare agencies or related service companies.
Craig is currently a Brand Manager within Internal Medicine at Shire Pharmaceuticals where he has worked since July 2006 within a variety of sales, marketing and market access roles, and was most recently the National Manager for Market Access, responsible for leading the delivery of market access operational objectives. Craig has over 15 years' experience within the pharmaceutical industry, also working for both Unomedical and Novartis during this time. Away from work Craig is usually found renovating houses or supporting a resurgent Sheffield Wednesday!
Under Craig, the PM Society has an ambitious plan, expanding particularly on its PriMe training courses and educational meetings and activities. Craig has been the PM Society Market Access Interest Group Lead since May 2016 and will continue leading these activities as well as leading the Executive Committee to which he has belonged since early 2016.
Fourteen Committee members met on the 14th September for the PM Society’s quarterly Committee meeting led by Co-Chair Rachel Farrow. The team welcomed David Clarke from Ethical Reach who was attending for the first time. In addition to updates on the awards, PriMe and the two interest groups, key topics for discussion included how the Society should be adapting itself over the next 5 years, how we can maximise the value of participation for volunteers and how we can best communicate to our members.
Craig Bradley (Shire) and Chris Edmonds (emotive) have been appointed to the PM Society Executive Committee.
They join Co-chairs Rachel Farrow and Carwyn Jones, Neil Smith (Solaris Health), Colin Williams (PharmiWeb) and Jonathan Dancer (redbow consulting) on the leadership team of the Society which meets quarterly to plan and manage the wide range of events and activities.
Craig Bradley joins the Executive to lead the Market Access Interest Group and contribute more widely to the Society’s leadership. Craig is National Manager for Market Access at Shire and in his short time on the PM Society wider Committee has already made good progress in running the newly invigorated interest group of Market Access professionals.
Chris Edmonds has been part of the Society’s wider Committee since 2014. On the Executive he will take on a role with the PM Awards team, the Society’s largest annual event. Chris is MD of emotive - a life sciences communications agency with a difference. He is also a non-Exec Director of Oxford Medical Training and Aesthetics Media who run a large annual Awards ceremony.
