Management Team

Paul Branthwaite BSc, MIoD

Senior Partner

Paul is responsible for marketing and recruitment in TranScrip. He has over 30 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry, including clinical R&D, business development and marketing.

Paul has spent many years assessing and consulting on Client needs and has lectured internationally in this critical area. His perspective on how to accurately break down projects into the various component parts is based on ‘hands-on’ experience within three mainstream pharma groups, two CROs, three consultancies and a biotech. He now leads the TranScrip business development and client interface programmes.

Since graduating in Pharmacology in 1979, Paul has held many roles within the pharmaceutical industry, including in marketing, in business development and clinical R&D. His therapeutic focus has spanned cardiovascular, dermatology, immunology, neuro-endocrine, anti-infectives, and CNS, as well as pain, wound-healing and oncology disease areas. Notably, Paul was part of the launch team for cyclosporin A in transplantation (with Sandoz), where he made the unusual transition to clinical research from marketing, working with that drug in autoimmune indications. He subsequently spent 12 years in operational and managerial roles within clinical development and medical affairs. Paul led business development efforts and global clinical programmes for two CROs, as well as running UK clinical operations for a Swedish biotech.
