t leaders in information services - having served in executive roles at some of the world's top data companies," said Veeva CEO Peter Gassner. "He brings deep domain expertise, a strong vision, and an unwavering commitment to customer success. We are fortunate to have the best in the industry take charge of this important new area for Veeva."
Responsible for Veeva's data business worldwide, including data production and data sales, Slevin's focus is to empower life sciences with accurate, reliable information that's always up-to-date and is easy to use.
"My goal is to build integrated information solutions that are known for quality, innovation, and, above all, customer success," said Slevin. "We have a great start, with the most robust industry data in the U.S. and China. I'm thrilled to be part of the continued advancement of Veeva's data business and help take it to the next level."
Slevin embarked on his career in information services with Dun & Bradstreet, a global leader in commercial data. There, Slevin held a variety of sales and marketing positions until he was recruited to infoUSA, where he rose through the ranks from national account manager to senior vice president, and launched what would become the company's fastest-growing division. Slevin next brought his data expertise to the healthcare industry, joining the executive management team at SK&A Information Services. He built SK&A's first physician database and recruited a team of data experts - priming the company for acquisition in 2011 by Cegedim.
After leaving SK&A, Slevin founded Healthcare Data Solutions (HDS), determined to establish a superior process for building a master database. He applied his vast knowledge of data management to bring the best of evidence-based practices and validation models to life sciences. He set into motion incredible growth leading HDS to national prominence, attracting Fortune 500 clients, being named to the INC 5000 three consecutive years, and ranking among Deloitte's Fast 500.
Slevin's appointment comes just two months after Veeva welcomed two other data industry veterans - Guillaume Roussel and Francesca D'Angelo - to the Veeva Network team in Europe.
Today, the company also announced the availability of the Veeva Network Provider Database for Europe, beginning with the top five markets. With an aim to provide life sciences companies choice and the most up-to-date and accurate healthcare professional (HCP), healthcare organisation (HCO), and affiliations data, Veeva is delivering the Network Provider Database for the U.K. today; France, Germany, Italy, and Spain in the first half of 2015; and other markets to follow.
