“This is sort of a homecoming for me. New Jersey is home to so many organizations that are leading the way and innovating in health care. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and get to work helping guide clients’ legislative, regulatory and policy objectives,” added Bobby.
Prior to joining HHS, Bobby worked at PwC's Health Research Institute, where he led the Institute’s analysis of regulatory and policy initiatives impacting the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries.
