WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

About Expedia Marketing Group

Neil Potter

Pfizer Launches

When I first get involved with a particular launch and see that Geoff is involved I know that no matter how complex the product or channel is, that processes will run smoothly and success is not far behind.

“I would like to share what tremendous work Geoff has done for us here at Pfizer in the product launch space. He is truly a launch specialist when it comes to planning and coordinating these immensely complex and ever shifting initiatives. Geoff adds much more than detailed chronological component tracking, he brings insight and experience from working on over 50 launch teams, many of which I have been personally involved with over time.

This experience helps to guide teams past many pitfalls in the process and unquestionably adds to the success and quality outcomes of the launch. I view what Geoff provides as more of a role of strategic consultant than project manager although he has consistently demonstrated a strong focus and attention to detail. When I first get involved with a particular launch and see that Geoff is involved I know that no matter how complex the product or channel is, that processes will run smoothly and success is not far behind.”

Ferring Launches

Geoff’s ability to point out hidden issues and hurdles, allowed me to focus on key drivers and anticipate obstacles during the whole process.

“I have worked with Geoff Chellis on the preparation of a US launch. I have hired Geoff to help Ferring HQ and the US affiliate with the outline and implementation of the launch plans. He has a great way of breaking down work streams into discreet items and of working with the different team members to achieve and document the progress of their deliverables. With his strong project management skills Geoff has provided great value to Ferring. But even more importantly, Geoff brought the experience of 50 launches – many with a strong US focus – to the table, crucial insights both for me as Global Brand Manager and for Swiss headquartered Ferring.Geoff’s ability to point out hidden issues and hurdles, allowed me to focus on key drivers and anticipate obstacles during the whole process. I will rehire Geoff at the next occasion.”

…. working with Geoff, we were able to launch a new drug to market in only 17 weeks after management gave the “go” decision … in large part due to the skill and guidance that Geoff brought to the team.

”I have worked with Geoff Chellis on two launch campaigns and in both instances, Geoff has proven himself to be an integral strategic partner. Geoff not only excels at managing the logistic and resource needs of a project, he also brings to the table unique insights that enable the team to avoid system bottlenecks and process delays. In fact, working with Geoff, we were able to launch a new drug to market in only 17 weeks after management gave the “go” decision.

Geoff’s contribution proved invaluable both in managing our matrixed team’s interaction with the collaborator’s team, with all the relationship issues inherent in such a match-up, and ensuring our team’s numerous deliverables for each country, in a time of significant upheaval for the organization. On numerous occasions Geoff has proven that his value-add is in ensuring that timelines were met, people were held accountable by the larger group, and bottlenecks identified and commensurate resources secured to relieve these bottlenecks.
