Commenting on his appointment, Greg Flynn said: “Through the talent of our people and Ashfield’s commitment to helping improve lives, I have seen the power of what we do in this organisation. The U.S. business has experienced phenomenal growth in the last two years and this new role is an exciting opportunity to continue that growth. I am excited about the future of Ashfield in the U.S. and being part of the next phase in this company’s journey.”

Mick O’Leary commented, “I am delighted to accept the role of Regional President in Japan and support the group’s overall strategy of expansion in growth markets. CMIC Ashfield is a winning proposition, combining the experience and expertise of a leading international CSO, with the local knowledge and capability of one of Japan’s leading CSOs. We’ll continue to excel by providing flexible, evidence-based services and I look forward to working with new clients and brand challenges in Japan.”

Julian Tompkins, Global President for Ashfield Clinical and Commercial business also commented: “We are delighted to have appointed these critical roles for the business. Greg’s leadership in the Japanese market has yielded remarkable growth and proven his dedication to Ashfield’s success. With Greg’s innovative thinking and focus on people, we are looking forward to seeing his impact on the U.S. business.
