Brindan works primarily in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors with leading health systems and innovator pharmaceutical and medical-device companies in Asia, Europe, and the United States. He is also a geographical leader in Australia for the McKinsey Health Institute, a non-profit-generating entity within the firm that aspires to catalyze action to add 45 billion years of higher-quality life for all people around the world.
Brindan focuses on strategy and organizational issues in both the R&D and commercial space, and frequently works at the intersection of the two as he coleads our medical-affairs work globally. He works on a range of issues, helping organizations take a more “science forward, patient back” perspective. This includes recent work helping to set the long-range strategies of a number of clients, the application of digital and analytics across the pharmaceutical value chain, and applying our latest thinking on maximizing talent and leadership across the industry.
Brindan convenes our cross-industry medical-affairs leader roundtable and regularly presents our insights at industry gatherings on innovation-related topics. He also worked as a physician before joining McKinsey.
