Who better than a jazz drummer to lead a cutting-edge research and consulting company in a fast-paced, ever-changing healthcare landscape? Paul Meade knows when to keep the tempo steady and when to improvise to meet evolving client needs in the biopharmaceutical industry.
While he can play a mean solo, Paul knows that he’s at his best with the great band he’s assembled around him. He’s fond of saying, “Great leaders are those who desire to lead other leaders, not just manage other people.” With that defining ethic, he’s built a team of effective leaders for Thought Leader Select.
Paul’s background is a combination of classical training (a Master of Science in biology from the University of Guelph, along with his proudest recent achievement, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of North Carolina) and vast industry experience. From his early days at Merck, leading teams of hospital sales representatives, to his role as worldwide commercial director for predictive medicine at GlaxoSmithKline, Paul built a 25-year record of achievement in pharmaceutical sales, marketing, and development.
A man who knows no entrepreneurial boundaries, Paul founded not one, but two breakthrough companies in 2005 and 2006. Clear Point Health channels his wide range of expertise in marketing, strategic planning, and clinical operations, while Thought Leader Select allows him to be the creative force behind a band of “experts on the experts” in the medical community.
