Shire Canada Inc.
Stephen is a solid market access and government/stakeholder relation professional. Through challenging access and policy issues we were facing in Western Canada, Stephen has proven to be a sharp strategist and a key advisor. His deep knowledge and understanding of governments and the healthcare environments made him a partner of choice for reimbursement and policy matters in the West.
His contributions yielded significant results in terms of partnership developments, PLA negotiations and raising/addressing difficult health policy issues. Stephen thoughtfully and strategically adapts his messages and approach to his target audience be it health stakeholders, public officials or politicians.
I highly recommend partnering with Stephen for organizations that wants to achieve tangible results and impactful outcomes with their reimbursement, access and policy challenges in the Western provinces.
National Lead, Market Access, Oncology
Lundbeck Canada Inc.
Stephen is a very knowledgeable and well connected Market Access and Government Relation professional who is very well respected amongst his peers in the industry. I experienced this first hand when Stephen developed our strategic plan for Western Canada, including a western payer tour to discuss our new upcoming oncology portfolio.
His strategic guidance, insight and connections were pivotal in our securing early buy-in from the regional cancer agencies through building partnerships with the key influencers and decision makers in the west. His counsel and work were critical in helping to secure timely reimbursement and favourable criteria.
We look forward to working with him again.
Director, Market Access & Government Affairs
InterMune Canada Inc.
Stephen contributed key elements to the successful reimbursement of a first in class product in the Canadian market. Stephen provided important insight into the needs of the western provincial drug programs that were integrated into our strategic plans and helped develop the product value proposition. He executed an informative and productive western public payer tour to establish relationships and early product positioning. Stephen also produced the submission budget impact analysis and report. I found Stephen’s work to be very professional.
I recommend contacting WestPAR for any market access, reimbursement or advocacy challenges in western Canada and I look forward to leveraging his services again in the future should the need arise.
