that Positively Impact Product Launches, Brand Optimization
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 13, 2017--
Navigant (NYSE:NCI) today announced that Elena Stavrakas, a director in
the firm’s Healthcare Life Sciences practice, has been recognized among
the 2017 “Rising Stars of the Profession” by ALM’s Consulting
magazine. Stavrakas was selected from more than 200 nominees considered
for the recognition, an annual list honoring 35 young up-and-comers in
the consulting profession under the age of 35.
“The ‘Rising Stars of the Profession’ award isn’t just about talent and
potential, it’s about results and impact,” said Consulting Editor
& Publisher Joe Kornik. “These 35 winners are difference makers to their
firms, co-workers and their clients, but they’re also moving the needle
for the entire consulting profession. And all before their 35th
birthdays; it’s simply amazing.”
Stavrakas, 33, specializes in biopharmaceutical strategic commercial
advisory with a particular focus on rare diseases, commercial launch
excellence, and business development strategy. Since joining Navigant in
2008, she has overseen partnerships with some of the industry’s leading
pharmaceutical companies, supporting delivery of complex disease area
strategies, on-site brand planning and execution, prioritization of
acquisition opportunities, and forecast model design and implementation.
“Elena has helped to build Navigant’s Life Sciences group into a vibrant
practice,” said David Zito, Navigant managing director and healthcare
segment leader. “Her ability to develop relationships both internally
and with key senior-level clients enables Navigant’s Life Sciences
practice to support a wide range of successful initiatives, from
pre-launch to post-launch.”
Stavrakas also co-leads Navigant Life Sciences’ new hire training,
helping to shape professionals for successful life sciences careers. A
graduate of Haverford College in Haverford, Pa., she began her career in
healthcare investment banking before transitioning into consulting.
“I’m fortunate to be part of a team that collaborates with biotech and
pharmaceutical industry leadership to develop products and services that
impact people’s lives,” said Stavrakas. “It is truly an honor to receive
this recognition, which further validates the exceptional value and
partnership our team provides to our clients.”
The “Rising Stars of the Profession” are recognized for excellence in
the following areas: leadership, client service, strategy consulting,
operations management consulting, healthcare, financial services, high
tech, retail, information technology, and human resources.
