What makes Philadelphia a good fit for Slalom?
There couldn't be a better time to be in Philadelphia. There is a vibrancy and energy here—you can see it in the business community, the revitalization of the downtown and other urban areas, what’s happening culturally in the city and the suburbs, and more young professionals living and working within the city limits.
And Philadelphia has an exceptionally diverse business community, from innovative startups to industry giants and companies of all sizes in between.
Given the diversity of the business community, what kind of work are we going after?
We’ll support a range of projects. Philadelphia is certainly known for its exceptionally rich heritage in healthcare—from leading health insurers and academic medical institutions to life sciences companies, and we'll absolutely be working there. But our work will span across industries, as there are a diverse set of companies that could benefit from Slalom's support in financial services, insurance, retail, and other markets in the city and region.
And you’re uniquely positioned to help our clients in the healthcare space given your background.
Yes—I spent 22 years in consulting working in the healthcare space, and the last four years on the client side building an innovative healthcare company. I bring deep experience helping companies bring new products to market for patients and consumers, as well as developing user experiences and leading technologies to support an organization's business goals.
Having been a consultant, consulting practice leader, and a client, I think I bring a unique perspective to Slalom and this role. I'm excited to support clients that I've worked with in the past and those that will be new to me and Slalom. I believe Slalom is a consulting partner that clients in our market will gravitate to, given our intimate model and ability to field very experienced teams while also drawing upon deep technology expertise nationally.
How are we helping companies address the complexity of today’s healthcare system?
Today's healthcare system relies upon the smart integration of consumer experience, data, and technology. We are well positioned to support these areas across the board. Fundamentally, healthcare companies need to bring together their data, technologies, and people to deliver the individualized experiences that consumers and patients want. Great user experiences are critical to winning in today’s healthcare environment.
We bring a unique perspective, helping leading healthcare companies not only transform their experiences and technologies, but also providing rich information management and analytics skills to help companies get closer to their consumers and patients by delivering experiences that keep them coming back, again and again.
