At Acumen we help clients navigate the complex mix of local, national and international interests that shape the healthcare space.
Alastair is known for rallying diverse stakeholders together across Europe, creating coalitions of support for policies where common ground is tough to establish. He is a model of the agile and open leadership style that is core to Acumen’s culture. Operating without rigid hierarchies and seeking expertise from diverse sources, he produces fresh solutions that meet the moment and drive real policy change.
He has wrestled himself with the challenge of turning policy into practice in the real world, particuarly when working on the implementation of the European Medicines Verification System. He has also spent time working at the national level, during a period of several years as an adviser in the UK Parliament.
In Brussels, he has translated this experience to become an effective bridge between business leaders and decision-makers in the healthcare sector.
