David Champeaux has joined the Alvarez & Marsal healthcare team in London, to lead its digitally enabled solutions offering. He will work for clients across the firm’s healthcare and life sciences client base.

The EMEA Healthcare & Life Sciences (HLS) practice of Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) offers guidance to clients across the pharmaceutical, medical device, health tech, and healthcare service industries. The practice has a burgeoning digital proposition, built on data and analytics, customer and workforce experience, sales and marketing, as well as new digital business models that align with the firm’s legacy of operational excellence and results-driven reputation.

As the sector turns to digital solutions to bolster its offerings, in the face of changing healthcare demands pre-and-post-pandemic, clients are increasingly turning to A&M for support in this area. David Champeaux brings over 25 years of advisory and operational expertise to A&M, having focused on designing and delivering, for the healthcare and life sciences sectors, intelligent health journeys and digital-enabled operating models and performance improvements.

Champeaux, said, “A&M serves as a digital accelerator that helps clients unlock growth and savings and improve patient access, outcomes and workforce experience without compromising other areas of their business. Disruption and digitalisation will continue to create ripples of challenge and change across healthcare and life sciences. Navigating these shifts requires the pragmatic reconfiguration of workflows, skills, organisation and incentive models, that A&M’s operational and digital know how foundation allows us to deliver.”

Prior to joining A&M, Champeaux served as a Partner at McKinsey & Company leading their digital healthcare offering. He has also served as a Managing Director heading Accenture’s Healthcare Strategy in the UK and Ireland and has held leadership roles with digital start-ups in the digital healthcare, mobile communications, logistics and digital storage equipment sectors.

Following Jean-Laurent Poitou’s recent appointment as Managing Director of A&M’s digital business in EMEA,  Champeaux’s arrival underpins the next phase of A&M’s European growth plan, according to a release from the firm. The release added that the intention was to “interlock the firm’s digital expertise to its lines of service and operational heritage.”

Speaking on the changes, Poitou added, “Over the last four years, we have tripled our EMEA revenues and number of professionals. David’s appointment reflects the firm’s ongoing commitment to invest in digital capabilities that support this growth trajectory. Sustainable digital solutions must be scalable and generate long-term value. David’s leadership will help our EMEA-based healthcare and life sciences clients seize digital’s operational and transformational power to realize their objectives.”
