Insigniam, an international management consulting firm that specializes in breakthrough performance, transformation, innovation, and corporate culture, announced today that one of its co-founding partners, Shideh Sedgh Bina, has been named to the PharmaVOICE 100 Most Inspiring People: an annual list of the 100 most innovative, influential, and inspirational people in the life-sciences industry.

“I am delighted and humbled to be included as a 2016 PharmaVOICE 100 recipient,” said Shideh Sedgh Bina when asked about the award, “I would be remiss, however, as to not acknowledge the clients I have served over the course of my 30 year career, without whom I could not engage in the breakthrough consulting I love so dearly. Secondly, the hard work and dedication of everyone at Insigniam must be recognized, this honor is because of their hard work as much as it is a recognition of my contributions to the industry.”

The PharmaVOICE 100 represents leaders from across the global life sciences industry. A panel of PharmaVOICE editors chose the winners based on their ability to inspire, motivate and influence corporate leadership, research and development, technology, creativity and marketing and strategy.

Dissatisfied with the status quo of the consulting industry, Shideh co-founded Insigniam from the ground up in 1990, dedicated to developing an entirely new model for management consulting. She moved away from traditional advisory consulting, who do the work for their clients, and instead developed a unique and proprietary method that provokes the client to think newly about their business and their work, thereby producing new and unprecedented results. To date, Insigniam clients include one-third of the Fortune 50, 80+ of the FT Global 500, over 110 companies of the Forbes Global 1000, and all 15 of the largest Pharmaceutical compani­­es in the world.

In 2014, in recognition of the contribution Insigniam continues to make in the transformation of healthcare, Shideh was selected as Woman of the Year by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA), one of the largest global professional associations for women.

She is also a Trustee of the Committee for Economic Development; a nonprofit, nonpartisan, business-led, public policy organization that delivers well researched analysis and reasoned solutions on our nation’s most critical issues.
