He brings a strong analytical approach to the data being generated, proactively identifying potential pitfalls, factors influencing the effective execution of trials, and lessons that can be learned. With a passion for unraveling and interpreting complex data into carefully crafted operational solutions, Drouet has led to many improvements in clinical trials. He has been lauded by peers for “superior client focus,” “brilliant oncology drug development experience,” being “invaluable to clients and project teams in his strategy development,” and displaying “true professionalism and dedication in all aspects of his work.”

Every year, thousands of nominations are submitted by industry colleagues who believe their nominee fits the required criteria of providing inspiration to peers, coworkers and companies through their innovative approaches to addressing the industry’s myriad challenges. According to the magazine, “The PharmaVOICE 100 develop breakthrough strategies, products and services. They are known for pioneering new paths and lifting their companies to new heights. They also take the time to mentor the next generation of industry leaders.” The full list of honorees is showcased in the July/August 2017 issue.
