Ipsos Healthcare Appoints Global Head of Innovation

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Princeton, NJ – Ipsos Healthcare has announced the appointment of Tom Nolte as Global Head of Innovation for Ipsos Healthcare.

Working closely with the Ipsos Healthcare Global Board, Nolte will drive the creation and delivery of innovative solutions that address clients’ evolving issues. Based in Princeton, New Jersey, he will report to Ipsos Healthcare’s Global CEO, Michael Spedding.

Tom Nolte

Nolte brings to the role a wealth of relevant experience. His 25-year international healthcare market research career has focused on new product design and development for both the healthcare and market research industries. Prior to joining Ipsos, Tom worked for two Omnicom Group agencies: most recently, The Modellers, and prior to that, Adelphi Research by Design, where he spent almost 15 years.

Nolte holds an MA in Communications Research and Marketing Strategy from the Wheaton College Graduate School.

Commenting on his role, Nolte said:

“Designing creative solutions for the most challenging questions in healthcare research has been a longstanding passion of mine. To do this in a global company with a proud heritage of innovation is exciting to say the least.”

Added Michael Spedding:

“Tom’s credentials in innovation, his pharma market expertise and his international experience make for a truly powerful combination. His appointment will underpin our continued focus on innovation and drive our strategy of delivering clarity in multi-stakeholder markets.”

Nolte’s appointment follows the return of Stuart Bartlett to Ipsos earlier this year; Bartlett re-joined the company from P\S\L Asia in May, becoming Head of Emerging Markets and Global Clients for Ipsos Healthcare. These senior global appointments reflect Ipsos Healthcare’s commitment to innovation and client service across its global network.
