After closing out a prolific 2022, Thought Leaders Select is proud to announce a trio of colleagues taking on leadership roles with the company’s research team.
Nine-year veteran Zoe Meade is joined by a pair of newcomers, Dana Hanson and Laura Nufire in defining a new era of leadership for delivery of the company’s proprietary research in the areas of thought leadership in medicine.
Zoe Meade has been promoted to Vice President, Research. A veteran researcher and leader at the company, Zoe spearheads project work centered on medical thought leadership in all of its permutations, from key opinion leaders (KOLs) and digital opinion leaders (DOLs) to speakers bureaus and centers of excellence (COEs). In addition, Zoe leads efforts in data visualization to help our clients quickly understand the dynamics of thought leadership in their respective therapeutic areas and make decisions with greater agility.
Dana Hanson has joined the organization, also in the role of Vice President, Research. In her career, Dana has built a robust record of expertise in multiple research methods and project management. She currently leads research related to thought leadership, including the identification and profiling of KOLs, DOLs, and COEs. In addition, her leadership is critical to understanding the relationships KOLs have with life sciences companies in our work to help medical affairs divisions optimize their business operations and customer experiences.
Laura Nufire has joined the organization in the role of Vice President of Operations and Process Improvement. Laura brings multiple perspectives to her role in optimizing the company’s operations, as a veteran researcher, project manager, care provider, and entrepreneur. In addition to her functional role on the TLS research team, Laura also leads client work related to patient engagement through her company, TLS strategic partner Empowered Patient Engagement.
“As we celebrate our 17th year in business, I am thrilled to enter another period of renewal with this excellent group of leaders,” said Paul Meade, founder and President of Thought Leader Select. “Zoe, Dana, and Laura each bring unique points of view to their work, and our clients will benefit from how they all problem-solve, work efficiently, and deliver breakthrough work. We value their perspectives at the world of healthcare trends more evidence-based, digital, and diverse, and their fresh thinking will power our next generation of growth.”
