Chief Innovation Leader, Life Sciences
Always Delivering More and Loving It
“Individuals like Timmy Garde are as rare as the rarest of gems,” says Philip P. Gerbino, PharmD, President Emeritus at University of the Sciences in Philadelphia (USciences). “They transform organizations, processes, and people.”
That is something Timmy has done throughout his 35 years in the life sciences industry. But after always working with established groups firmly entrenched in life sciences marketing, Timmy is now helping to grow the LevLane Life Sciences business unit for Philadelphia 33-year-old independent agency LevLane.
Now LevLane is benefiting from Timmy’s highly energized approach and focus on continually creating inventive ways of doing business as well as seizing opportunities to meet client objectives. This energy and focus has made him a very respected healthcare specialist, and is why LevLane has committed to Timmy’s unique structure and approach.
“Much of the credit for the successful creation of the LevLane Life Sciences business unit goes to Timmy Garde,” says LevLane Co-founder and Partner Bruce Lev. “With Timmy’s 30+ years of industry experience came immediate access to a brain trust of senior level thinkers and doers, a swat team whose total mastery of all key disciplines runs the length and breadth of the life sciences spectrum.”
In addition to the work Timmy is now doing at LevLane—and previously accomplished at Calcium, Star Life Sciences, and Vox Medica—he is also working to improve life sciences education. Timmy previously served on a key committee at USciences’ College of Healthcare Business and Policy (where he brought new ideas to help market the university), and currently serves on the University’s Samson College of Health Sciences Board of Visitors. Timmy also serves on the Smeal College of Business, The Pennsylvania State University, Alumni Society Board. With his involvement at Smeal, Timmy is continuously working on new program development, assists in the college’s branding activities, and is a frequent guest lecturer covering various life sciences current topics and issues. Additionally, Timmy has created the Tim R. Garde Trustee Scholarship for Smeal, a scholarship created to help support the financial needs of deserving students.
Timmy’s DNA is built around the idea to do what you love, love what you do, and deliver more than you promise.
