SSI Strategy

The Executive Advisory Network

About The Network

The Executive Advisory Network brings together some of the most globally recognized and prestigious experts across the pharmaceutical and biotech landscapes. All are renowned for their contributions in developing and launching successful assets and companies.

This curated network includes known quantities for SSI collaboration as we have worked or partnered with each member. We requested their participation as we share a similar mentality in partnership and delivery philosophy along with a proven shared track record. Collectively, we hold a passion to help our client partners achieve corporate objectives and advance therapeutic value.

Conflict-free, Independent Advisory – Each of our experts maintain independent operator and board roles outside of their support of the SSI Ex Ad Network. Our team completes a conflict check and gains alignment prior to onboarding any of our experts.
