Brian began his career in the CRO industry with APEX prior to its acquisition by Parexel International. During his tenure at APEX, Brian played a key role in developing strategic business plans, which helped to establish its prominent presence in Asia Pacific. His efforts culminated in APEX becoming a leading CRO in Asia and placing the company on the global map.

Upon a full integration with Parexel and armed with an extensive understanding of the APAC region, Brian and his team spearheaded an initiative to develop end-to-end, “one-stop-shop” solutions for our clients in APAC. This proved to be a successful endeavour as our APAC Biotechs were able to obtain approvals for their drug assets and address unmet needs in today’s global markets.

As Senior Vice President for the APAC Biotech team, Brian oversees the team in Greater China, Japan, South Korea, SEA, and Australia. He leads the sales team to drive continued growth for the business in this region. Brian’s passion lies in nurturing his team to partner with our Biotech clients to continue bringing their innovative treatment options from bench to bedside.

Brian graduated with a Master’s in International Public Policy & Management from the University of Southern California. During his military days, Brian served as an Officer in the Department of Personnel. Before joining the CRO business, Brian was a Stock Analyst and mainly focused on the biopharmaceutical industry.
