Alexander Gissler


Prior to founding ProjectPharm, Alex held various senior positions in different clinical research organisations, amongst which Quintiles (Munich office head), Medpace (Managing Director Europe), and PharmaProjekthaus (Partner and Programme Leader).

In 1999, Alex was one of the first Quintiles employees to be certified as a Project Management Professional (APM). Alex tried to implement what he had learned in clinical trials and pharmaceutical development projects and quickly realised that the clinical research industry could realise significant improvements by applying such tools and techniques. This eventually resulted in starting the ProjectPharm venture.

Our vision is to support other companies not only from an operational point of view, by managing pharmaceutical development projects, or rescuing trials in dire straits, but also by supporting Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies, as well as CROs, to achieving better than average benchmarks with their pharmaceutical projects.
