Xcenda President Kristine Flemister Named a Top Transformational Leader in PM360 ELITE 100
Kristine Flemister, PharmD, Recognized as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare by PM360
Today, Kristine Flemister, PharmD, President of Xcenda, was honored by PM360 as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the Healthcare Industry for 2020. As part of their 6th Annual ELITE Awards, Dr. Flemister was specifically recognized in the Transformational Leaders category.
Growing up in a family of community pharmacists and eventually becoming a pharmacist herself, Kristine Flemister, PharmD, saw firsthand how patient needs could be addressed by a properly launched and supported therapy. But if manufacturers can’t demonstrate the value of their potentially life-saving drugs, those medicines may never reach patients in need. Recognizing the importance of data-driven clinical and health economic differentiators to enable successful market access, Kristine joined Xcenda as a founding member in 1995 and has since become its current President.
Now as the current President, Dr. Flemister leads a
virtual workforce of more than 650 global associates in their mission to
deliver the strategic guidance, actionable insights, and tactical support
services that manufacturers rely on to clearly prove a therapy’s worth and
ensure patient access. Throughout her
tenure, she has fostered an innovative and compassionate culture with the end
goal of helping drive better healthcare decision-making across the industry.
“I am truly honored to be named to this elite group. In such unprecedented times, we as leaders in healthcare recognize how important our jobs are to stay resilient and innovate to help create healthier futures. I’m proud to represent the Xcenda Associates who are a driving force in fulfilling that purpose every day.”
