Matt Sarnes, PharmD

Senior Vice President, Business Development & Strategy

My role focuses on helping manufacturers develop innovative strategies and tactics to overcome barriers to product access. The ultimate goal of the commercial consulting practice is to use our market access and reimbursement expertise to improve global health.

In the last 15-plus years, I’ve led commercialization strategies for both new and in-line products across several therapeutic areas. My therapeutic is experience broad — from cardiovascular, diabetes, and infectious diseases to multiple sclerosis, oncology, orphan diseases, and rheumatology. And I’ve been fortunate to be able to apply my skills and experience to the healthcare industry’s biggest challenges: market access, health economics, reimbursement, quality improvement, marketing, and distribution strategy.

I’ve been proud to represent Xcenda’s thought leadership at numerous healthcare conferences including the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy’s Educational Forum and Armada Specialty Pharmacy Summit, and American College of Clinical Pharmacy. I’ve had the opportunity to share insights through industry publications and authored more than 50 scientific articles as well as book chapters on healthcare technology valuation.

I received my Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Pittsburgh, and my post-doctoral training in ambulatory care and outcomes research from Healthcore, Inc. and the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. 

"Driving new ideas with people who bring their A-game every day – this is why I love Xcenda."

Join our team.

Come be a part of something special.
