Burlington, Mass. – May 9, 2013 – inVentiv Health, Inc., offering best-in-class clinical, commercial and consulting services to the healthcare industry, today announced that four talented women executives have been selected as 2013 “Rising Stars” by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA).

The inVentiv Health honorees included Sabine Dettwiler of Campbell Alliance, Jeanine O’Kane of Chandler Chicco Companies, Jennifer Oleski of GSW Worldwide, and Krystina Smith of Palio+Ignite.

The combined experience of inVentiv’s four Rising Stars spans several decades and a variety of healthcare-specific disciplines including advertising, public relations and consulting:

  • Sabine Dettwiler, Director of the Commercial Center of Excellence in Campbell Alliance’s London office, spearheads strategy development and implementation support across multiple therapeutic areas and geographies.
  • Jeanine O’Kane, Managing Director of Biosector 2, a Chandler Chicco company, has more than 20 years of business leadership experience in the development and execution of global public relations programs.
  • Jennifer Oleski, Vice President at GSW Worldwide, has more than a decade of pharmaceutical advertising experience, including franchise branding, direct-to-patient marketing and professional education promotions.
  • Krystina Smith, Senior Research Analyst at Palio+Ignite, excels in market research, analytics, brand strategy, budget impact modeling and social listening.

Each year HBA recognizes women in the healthcare industry who exhibit visionary leadership skills, are solely dedicated to the healthcare industry, and who contribute significantly to their organizations. To qualify as Rising Stars, honorees must also promote growth opportunities for others and serve as role models within their respective companies.

“These Rising Stars represent the best minds in healthcare. They bring a unique perspective, but also a multidisciplinary approach to an industry in dramatic transition,” said Paul Meister, Chief Executive Officer of inVentiv Health. “Their passion for healthcare and commitment to client service provides inspiration for all of us at inVentiv and we are proud to call them our colleagues.”

The 2013 honorees were recognized at the 24th annual HBA Woman of the Year award luncheon, held May 9, in New York City.
