Job description

Emerging Biopharma (EBP) Asset Strategy Partner

At the interface of final clinical readiness and launch preparations are decisions that impact the future profitability of every launchable asset.  Often clients make these decisions in silos:  clinical teams optimize the clinical product profile for regulatory review without always considering the commercial implications of these decisions, while commercial teams under-emphasize the importance of differentiated clinical evidence in their market positioning.  IQVIA believes that bringing evidence-backed commercial strategy perspectives to clients earlier in clinical development will increase the probability of success of those clients. 

The Emerging Biopharma (EBP) Asset Strategy Partner is a trusted advisor to IQVIA’s EBP clients, incorporating expertise in both clinical development and commercialization to support clients in the transition from clinical to the development, enablement, and execution of their commercialization strategies.  The Asset Strategy Partner will utilize the full spectrum of IQVIA’s resources to deploy integrated solutions that enable successful commercialization strategies and first-in-class delivery for EBP clients across therapeutic areas in the United States.

The Asset Strategy Partner will:

  • Partner with EBP clients to relay IQVIA’s understanding of the competitive marketplace each asset will launch into. Shares an IQVIA point of view on each market (marketing, sales, medical affairs, market access) and recommends launch steps required for differentiation
  • Key point-of-contact for commercial strategy questions clients pose throughout the clinical development process
  • Recommend, develop and deliver insightful, value-added commercialization strategies that address complex EBP client needs
  • Partner closely with Clinical leaders to identify and respond to EBP client needs as they transition from clinical development to commercialization and launch planning
  • Build trusted partner status via deep content expertise, acting as a thought leader for clients and delivery teams
  • Conduct strategy sessions with clients to outline an integrated commercial launch plan, with regular check-ins to assess progress and address questions
  • Leverage prioritization frameworks to focus pre-commercial team effort on accounts that are likely to launch on their own and provide IQVIA a positive engagement return-on-investment
  • Prepare analytical proof points and recommendations for launch critical success factors aligned with IQVIA’s proposed client solutions and launch perspectives
  • Lead senior level meetings with clients to support launch planning, market, and therapy area insights, and overall solution design and rationale
  • Act as principal owner of client engagements; ultimate responsibility for client satisfaction and delivering high levels of quality/added value
  • Create and elevate new business opportunities through the identification of value-added follow-on work and identify new revenue opportunities with existing and new client organizations
