Gary is the Group CEO of Chameleon, a leading medical communications company with offices in London, Manchester, and New York. Chameleon specializes in providing leading-edge strategic and advisory services and global and regional communications programs incorporating scientific and marketing communications, professional education, and captivating interactive digital programs, all with the intent to build the scientific platform upon which successful pharmaceutical brands are founded. He believes that effective business leadership is most simply about "positively influencing the course of events" and tries to live up to this day by day.
Gary graduated in physiology and biochemistry from the University of Southampton and found his way into the healthcare arena with Bayer Pharmaceuticals in the UK. Gary progressed through sales and sales management to marketing, where he led the team responsible for the launch of ciprofloxacin (Cipro/Ciproxin). This experience brought Gary into contact with the world of medical communications, and after 11 years at Bayer he moved to Franklin Scientific Projects, a medical education agency within DMB&B where, as managing director, he gained a lifelong interest in helping groups of people excel in achieving their business goals and in growing their business as a result.
Gary brought this philosophy to Chameleon in 2001, via a 2-year spell as CEO of Medical Action Communications. Since then he has enjoyed the enormous satisfaction of seeing the accumulated hard work and talent of the evolving Chameleon team come to fruition to make it the company it is today.
Chameleon has a range of clients, from small biotech to large pharma, but the common denominator is the passion with which Chameleon identifies the route to success and pursues that goal. Clearly this is highly valued by clients, since loyalty is a theme of Chameleon's client relationships, some of which (Novartis) date back to Chameleon's inception in 1997 and others, such as Bayer, beyond 10 years.
Outside of work, Gary enjoys spending time with his family; watching his football (soccer) team, Tottenham Hotspur; and seeing Bruce Springsteen perform live (no less than 26 times since 1981!).
