Symphony Health Solutions Opens London Hub to Target European Market

LONDON, June 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Symphony Health Solutions, a Horsham, Pa.-based provider of high-value market research, analytics and technology solutions for life science manufacturers, payers and providers, today announced the opening of a London office to target the European market and better serve its growing roster of global market research clients. The company's first permanent base outside of the U.S., London represents Symphony Health's commitment to enhancing the way it serves customers in Europe and beyond.

"We are committed to the highest level of service in our research offerings, and meeting clients in their local markets," said Frank Lavelle, CEO, Symphony Health Solutions. "Our new London office puts us closer to the high concentration of healthcare companies in Europe and allows us to broaden the reach of our high-value market research and analytics."

Situated in Central London, the new office is led by Hilary Worton, a veteran of the healthcare research business who will lead the effort of making Symphony Health a viable source of market research data and insight beyond the U.S. Many of the largest life sciences companies have headquarters or regional offices in Europe, a global hotbed of pharmaceutical activity. Symphony Health Solutions now can better support these firms as a partner who can deliver high quality primary custom research and analytics to help unlock the full market potential of clients' brands.

"We already serve a number of customers with offices throughout Europe and other parts of the world particularly with our custom research services," said Hilary Worton, Managing Director, Symphony Health Solutions Custom Research, U.K. "The proximity of our new London hub allows us to have closer ties to them, be more responsive, and makes it more efficient to better serve their day-to-day needs."

Building on more than a decade of global research experience, Symphony Health Solutions has conducted research in 53 countries worldwide. Initial offerings in Europe will focus on custom primary research and key opinion leader (KOL) mapping projects supporting strategic initiatives for global and regional clients.

Symphony Health Solutions will attend the EphMRA Europe conference in London, June 25-27, 2013. For more information, visit the Symphony Health Solutions website at
