Managing Principal at ZS Associates Named One of Consulting Magazine’s Top 25 Consultants of 2011
Aaron Mitchell recognized for driving success of new medicine from commercial development to launch
EVANSTON, IL – June 1, 2011 – Aaron Mitchell, managing principal at global management consulting firm ZS Associates, was named one of the top 25 consultants of 2011 by Consulting Magazine. Mitchell was recognized for directing his consulting team’s partnership with a leading biotech firm over several years and during a major, recent product launch.
"I feel honored to be named one of the top consultants,” said Mitchell, who has more than 10 years of experience with sales, marketing and product development issues related to pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and healthcare. “This award, however, recognizes the entire ZS global biotechnology practice, and what it brings to clients in all aspects of product development – from early stage, to pre- and post-launch, to late-stage lifecycle decisions. I would not have been awarded this without the support, counsel and incredible hard work of my fellow consultants at ZS."
ZS Helps Launch New Biotech Medicine
Mitchell and his ZS team have worked with the said biotech firm for more than eight years. Last year, they compressed eight months of sales and marketing planning into three months to help launch a new therapy that received FDA approval quicker than expected.
As part of his assignment, Mitchell regularly consults with the biotech firm on strategic issues. He works across many disciplines to maximize his clients’ success, including commercial strategy, marketing research, sales force design and business technology and operations.
“Aaron is an experienced thought leader who immerses himself in client strategy and counsels key executives on both strategic and tactical issues,” said Jaideep Bajaj, managing director of ZS Associates. “Aaron serves as a trusted adviser to his clients on the most critical issues in the biotechnology industry. He excels particularly in situations that require quick thinking and a fast-turnaround.”
