EVANSTON, Ill. – May 7, 2020 – Dennis Fournogerakis, associate partner at life sciences consulting firm Beghou Consulting, was named a 2020 “leader of the future” by PM360 magazine as part of its ELITE awards. The “leader of the future” award honors emerging leaders in the health care industry.

Fournogerakis is a go-to expert on commercialization strategies for new, cutting-edge oncology immunotherapies, including CAR T-cell therapies and orphan drugs. A key player in this space since its infancy, he helped to develop a commercialization framework—with a focus on sales force design—for the emerging CAR T marketplace.

“Dennis has differentiated himself as a trusted adviser and invaluable resource for life sciences companies that specialize in groundbreaking therapies,” said Jon Hesby, partner at Beghou Consulting. “As dozens of companies join the race to develop their own breakthrough treatments, Dennis’s unique expertise in this category provides a competitive advantage.”

Beyond CAR T therapies, Fournogerakis consistently develops new, out-of-the-box analytics solutions to help commercial teams effectively solve problems related to a variety of commercial issues, from forecasting to incentive compensation. He recently created a new sales force sizing and structure model that enables companies to quickly adjust their sales forces across a variety of products.

“I am pleased to represent Beghou Consulting as a PM360 ELITE leader of the future,” Fournogerakis said. “My deep understanding of data analytics helps to more accurately identify and target new prescribers for emerging patient populations and better enables manufacturers to reach those in need of groundbreaking therapies. I regularly deploy machine learning to solve commercial challenges for established and emerging life sciences companies and look forward to continuing to find innovative solutions for my clients.”

Fournogerakis has counseled life sciences companies for nearly 10 years on sales force sizing and deployment, portfolio optimization, targeting, market assessment and forecasting, and incentive compensation. He earned a doctorate from Stanford University in organic chemistry and a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
