Wow. The “stars” aligned as The First Annual PM360 ELITE Awards winners took the stage at Manhattan’s posh Standard Hotel High Line during PM360’s recent sold out ELITE Awards event—created to honor those individuals who are devoted to the industry, push the envelope and expand its horizons. In other words, today’s top influencers.
Our first class winners set a high bar for what it takes to truly stand out. Counted among the many industry celebrities milling about the crowd: Allergan’s Bill Meury, who kicked off the unique event as keynote speaker; Novartis’ Jesus Leal; Baxalta’s Meredith Manning; AstraZeneca’s Dave Guiga; UCB’s Trish Nettleship—on and on. And on!
Winners in 13 ELITE categories from “Leaders of the Future,” to “Entrepreneurs,” “Disruptors,” to “Digital Crusaders,” met, schmoozed, joked and very much enjoyed a non-stop array of tasty hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and a spectacular panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline from an uppermost terrace overlooking the Hudson River. The Standard Hotel buzzed with all the excitement, making this event an unforgettable experience for all—one everyone is likely to be talking about for a long time to come.

This issue offers even more excitement. As biotech booms, it is unalterably reshaping today’s pharmaceutical landscape. Larger biotech companies (Genentech, Amgen), and many smaller companies (Seattle Genetics, Regeneron and Relypsa), are quickly changing the way the industry operates. Their biggest advantage? “Enviable” innovation, faster new therapy time to market, lower R&D costs, leaner operations and genuine “patient centricity.” All are giving Big Pharma a run for its money. But pharma isn’t idly standing by. Check out our feature, Biotech Booms—And Industry Shifts for a comprehensive overview of this sector’s unprecedented influence.
Want more excitement? Our annual 2015 Trailblazer Awards Gala is fast approaching. We can’t wait to unveil the incredible work, innovations and achievements (in five award categories) this September 25 at NYC’s stunning Gotham Hall.
