Welcome Brian O’Connor and Jennifer Terrell
Cello Health US is pleased to announce the addition of Brian O’Connor and Jennifer Terrell to support further growth of the organization in the United States.
Brian O’Connor joins the team as the Chief Financial Officer for the US region, bringing with him over 15 years of progressive financial leadership experience. Prior to joining Cello Health, he was the CFO for Keypoint Intelligence and held a variety of senior roles at Kaplan and Reed Elsevier. Throughout his broad financial and operational career, Brian has been successful in assembling and leading highly skilled teams, ensuring full regulatory compliance, and driving change and improvement within established organizations.
Jennifer Terrell joins as Managing Director, Cello Health Communications, Boston. Jennifer holds a BS and an MBA, and has held senior client service roles substantially growing client relationships and revenues and leading teams during her 20-year service side career. She joins the team from Omnicom’s Scienomics Group, but also has experience in communications start-ups. Her varied experience will be extremely valuable to both the company and the client base as she works to expand Cello Health’s presence in the Boston/New England regional market, with a focus on Cello Health’s communications capability.
The market is a key strategic priority for Cello Health in 2018, as the region continues to expand at a rapid rate. According to MassBio, in 2016 alone, 30% of all US-based biotech IPOs were from Massachusetts companies, and venture investment in regional biopharma companies was $2.9 billion.
Julia Ralston, US CEO of Cello Health, said, “We continue to invest in developing our US footprint by finding people who are aligned with our vision for growth in the US and can make a significant contribution to our ambitious growth plans. Both Brian and Jennifer have great experience and varied perspectives that will enable us to help navigate our clients to the best outcomes. We are delighted to have them join the team.”
