LONDON and TOKYO, September 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
EvaluatePharma Ltd, the research company, is delighted to announce the official launch of EvaluatePharma Japan KK. With a team based in Tokyo, EvaluatePharma Japan KK will be ideally placed to support our clients and prospects in Japan.
"Japan is a very important market for us. We have managed to build close relationships with our major customers from a distance, but it is now time for us to show our commitment to the Japanese market with a dedicated local operation," said CEO Dr Jonathan de Pass.
With the establishment of EvaluatePharma Japan KK, we welcome Hiroshi Yamazaki, who has joined as a regional director. Mr. Yamazaki is responsible for development of EvaluatePharma's business in Japan. With many years' experience servicing the pharmaceutical industry, he and the EvaluatePharma Japan team are well positioned to expand and support the business in this territory.
The launch was marked with a reception at the British Embassy in Tokyo, where Dr Jonathan de Pass, founder and CEO of EvaluatePharma Ltd, presented "Darwin's Medicine - Survival of the Fittest in the Pharma Industry." Drawing on EvaluatePharma's World Preview 2016 (2011 edition), and "The Future of Pharma" by Professor Brian D. Smith, Dr de Pass discussed the evolutionary forces shaping the pharmaceuticals industry in the face of catastrophic loss of revenue post "patent cliff" and the alarming decline in R&D productivity.
