The Awards are Given for Commercial Operations Excellence within the Pharmaceutical Industry

Waltham, MA MAY 6, 2021 – Trinity Life Sciences, a leader in global life science commercialization solutions, announced the winners of the TGaS Best of Benchmark (BoBs) Awards. The Awards, which are given for commercial operations excellence within the pharmaceutical industry, were presented to teams at AbbVie, Biogen, Genentech, Lundbeck, Otsuka, Pharmacyclics and Janssen Biotech, Inc. The BoBs are based on TGaS benchmarking of large, midsize, and emerging life sciences companies.

While the specific BoB criteria subtly changes from function to function, the underlying factor for recognition is a commercial operations pharma team that demonstrates the best capability relative to peers in the industry for a specific department, function, or process. Winners are chosen based on TGaS benchmarks and other benchmark-based project work that gives the TGaS Division a deep understanding of all eligible clients.

“We couldn’t be more excited to recognize this year’s deserving winners at our Best of Benchmark Awards ceremony,” said Gary McWalters, President, TGaS Advisors, a division of Trinity. “The winning companies and their operational leaders faced unprecedented challenges in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic yet rose to the occasion by implementing best-in-class solutions and capabilities that set them apart from their peer group.”
