Updated on November 11, 2023

Tim Wright, a highly experienced executive in policy, access, value and evidence has joined Avalere Health as the new President of its global Policy, Access, Value, and Evidence capability. The announcement was made just before the Professional Society for Health Economics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) Europe meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark, being held from November 12 to 15.

“Tim is an accomplished and respected leader who brings more than 30 years of global experience in pricing, reimbursement and market access consultancy,” said Amar Urhekar, Chief Operating Officer. “He has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in managing teams and succeeding in this complex environment. Tim will ensure we deliver our industry-leading solutions to clients as they engage with our community of experts.” 

With Wright at the helm, the team will continue to increase its collaborative engagements with Avalere Health’s policy, market access, HEOR, and healthcare transformation colleagues in the U.S., closing the gap in executing market access strategies for global brand launches. When the agency rebranded in October, leading HEOR and market access consultancies, such as Policy Analysis Inc (PAI), Skysis and PRMA Consulting, retired their names to adopt the Avalere Health moniker to further emphasize the agency’s integrated service offerings. Together, the company’s experts deliver unrivaled global expertise from Europe to North America, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region, with clients benefiting from connected solutions from pre-clinical to post-launch that span a range of services in Consulting; Medical; Policy, Access, Value, and Evidence; Marketing and Digital Experience Technology.
