TGaS Advisors Awards Second Annual “BoBs” for Best of Benchmark

E. Norriton, Penn., April 9, 2019. Eleven companies achieved the highest honors in TGaS® Advisors' second annual search for the biopharmaceutical industry's Best of Benchmark, or "BoBs," with 15 awards presented across 12 categories. The BoBs, awarded for commercial excellence, are based on the firm's benchmarking of large, midsize and emerging life sciences companies (elsN). The BoBs will be presented at a special awards ceremony on April 29, 2019, at the Renaissance Hotel Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL, where TGaS, a division of Trinity Partners, is holding its semi-annual Client Summit.

"We introduced the BoBs to honor excellence in our commercial operations leaders who, together with their vendor partners, are essential to a company's success in the marketplace," said TGaS President Gary McWalters. "We congratulate the winners for their outstanding achievements."

The benchmark data is drawn from a variety of quantitative and qualitative sources and goes through special processes to ensure an "apples-to-apples" comparison. In addition, life sciences companies were invited to nominate vendors that had favorably impacted their business in measurable ways. Winners received a significant number of "likely to recommend" positive ratings and scored high on their ability to align, plan and execute to outcomes and to listen and respond effectively.
