We wanted to take the best of traditional strategy consulting and freelancing to create a new consulting model. From traditional consulting, we took the calibre, professionalism and intellectual rigour of the world’s top firms, and from freelance consulting, we took the benefits of years of experience in consulting and industry, commercial pragmatism and flexibility.
Rob and Anthony previously worked together for over 10 years as Head of Business Development and CEO at Onyvax, a biotech company developing cancer vaccines. Before co-founding Onyvax, Anthony had been a management consultant at Arthur D. Little (where he re-launched the UK pharma consulting practice) and The Wilkerson Group in London where he focused mainly on its biotech consulting practice.
We believe that seasoned industry expertise is essential to deliver value to a sophisticated life science client – inexperienced juniors who “borrow your watch to tell you the time” are conspicuously absent from Alacrita. We hand-pick genuine experts to form tailored project teams, and work with them to define and address the challenges our clients are facing.
We have an unrivalled network of experts who have operated across the spectrum of life sciences. Many are industry veterans with 25+ years of experience, others are professional independent consultants operating in the life science arena. We have carefully selected them all and draw upon their specific capabilities and expertise when required. They combine extensive international industry experience (strategic, technical and commercial), broad functional capabilities and a track record of success across the industry.
We work across the spectrum of life sciences; from CMC to BLA, from manufacturing audits to payor and marketing strategy and from intellectual property to valuations. We cover the waterfront of healthcare life science industries including pharma, biotech, cell therapies, diagnostics, personalized medicine, medical devices, OTC/self-care and nutrition.
Our goal is to become the preeminent life science consulting firm bringing together world class expertise to deliver real value to our clients.
