PwC recognised as a Kennedy Vanguard Leader in Kennedy’s new report on Life Sciences Consulting Supply Chain Strategy, Operations and Talent.

PwC praised for demonstrating further Life Sciences (LS) sector depth with enhanced capabilities from integrating Strategy& operating models to enable transformation beyond discrete LS supply chain performance. 

Kennedy, the leading consulting research and advisory firm, has rated PwC as a Kennedy Vanguard Leader in Life Sciences Consulting Supply Chain Strategy, Operations and Talent in a new report. 

In the report, Kennedy states that PwC has “defined methods to link LS supply chain with shifting portfolios, manufacturing, alternative delivery channels such as direct-to-patient, new market entry risk, and brand management differentiate the firm’s offerings.”  Additionally, Kennedy notes that PwC’s “Global and US expertise in risk, regulatory, governance, finance and supply chain, combined with (its) operating model expertise and sector-specific value levers, enable clients to take advantage of fundamentally new LS customer-influenced supply chain transformation in a sustainable way.”

PwC is one of only four firms to have attained Kennedy Vanguard status.  Kennedy Vanguard firms are those which demonstrate either market-leading depth in particular capabilities or meaningful depth across a broad spectrum of capabilities.

Juan Pujadas, Global Advisory Chairman, said "We are proud to have been recognised as a Kennedy Vanguard leader. This recognition reflects that PwC is in a unique position to assist clients with their life sciences consulting needs globally, and that we have committed to growing our capabilities in the supply chain space.”

Doug Strang, PLS Advisory Leader, said "We are pleased to have been rated by Kennedy as an ‘advancing Vanguard,’ and proud that PwC was named as the firm with the greatest breadth of capabilities in supply chain strategy and operations consulting to the PLS sector.”

Bernie Student, PLS Supply Chain Leader, said "This recognition reflects that PwC is in a unique position to assist clients with end-to-end supply chain strategy, enabling transformation from new product development all the way to the patient. It emphasises our ability to build long-term relationships with our clients, leveraging cross-functional expertise to anticipate needs and find new sources of differentiated value.”
