BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- inVentiv Health, a life science knowledge and services company, announced today that four of its senior executives have been named to the prestigious PharmaVOICE 100 list of the most inspiring leaders in the life sciences industry. The inVentiv executives were selected among hundreds of nominees for outstanding leadership and innovation.
The four winners include Bob Chandler of Chandler Chicco Companies; Paul Harrington of Palio+Ignite; Susan Perlbachs of GSW; and Sydney Rubin of inVentiv Health. The awards are granted based on nominations submitted by colleagues and clients.
"We congratulate the honorees who embody the kind of deep healthcare expertise and commitment to innovation that has made inVentiv Health an industry leader," said CEO Paul Meister. "They are an inspiration to their colleagues and a credit to our profession."
inVentiv's winners lead and mentor teams across a global company of 12,000 employees. Their work spans decades and includes several healthcare disciplines as described in the current edition of PharmaVOICE magazine:
- Bob Chandler, Chandler Chicco Companies: The inclusion of Bob Chandler on this year's list pays tribute to his life-long mission to improve communications among patients, physicians, insurers and the providers of healthcare products and services. Bob built a new breed of PR agency – a flat agency with an empowered workforce focused on healthcare – which today includes more than 400 staff in New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Frankfurt and Shanghai. Always ahead of the curve, he envisioned the possibilities of the "activated patient" long before the Internet or talk of patient-centric medicine. His innovative campaigns armed patients with knowledge about their treatment options, and improved communications between physicians and patients.
- Paul Harrington, Palio+Ignite: Paul Harrington is transforming the healthcare industry by elevating creativity and building brands with simple, powerful stories. For more than 25 years, Paul has been producing award-winning creative in both consumer and healthcare accounts, across a wide range of media. At Palio+Ignite, an advertising agency that fuses art and science with technology and imagination, Paul has worked tirelessly to launch landmark campaigns and bring brands to life. He is the driving force behind Palio+Ignite's global campaign for the world's first once-weekly treatment for type 2 diabetes, Bydureon. Paul leads the biocoastal Bydureon team, who was named the Brand Team of the Year by Med Ad News.
- Susan Perlbachs, GSW: As the executive director at the New York office of GSW, a leading healthcare advertising agency, Susan creates an environment where ideas are king and safe thinking gets squashed fast. Imbued with a competitive fire and relentless pursuit of the most powerful and perfect story, Susan strives constantly to ensure that the brands she manages succeed in the marketplace. She brings an array of experience to the role spanning 18 years, and she has enjoyed enormous success over this period with DTP and DTC audiences in areas that range from oncology brands to over-the-counter products.
- Sydney Rubin, inVentiv Health: Sydney's focus has been to position inVentiv Health as a global operating company with a reputation for excellence. During her time with inVentiv Health, she designed and developed the first social enterprise-wide intranet to encourage collaboration while also embarking on an external communications campaign that included message development for each of inVentiv's nearly two dozen businesses. Sydney's true passion lies in helping develop the next generation of professional communicators, delivering some of inVentiv's most popular professional development workshops in which she shares both professional skills and her love of language.
"These trailblazers use their experience and innovative thinking to help our clients navigate an increasingly complex operating, regulatory and reimbursement environment," said Meister. "We are proud to call them our colleagues."

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
