Alvarez and Marsal has announced the appointment of Arpita Singhal as a Managing Director in its life sciences division. Based in London, she will specialise in developing and accelerating large-scale digital transformation programmes for companies in the life sciences space.

Raymond Berglund, Managing Director and Head of the EMEA Healthcare & Life Sciences practice at Alvarez & Marsal (A&M), noted, “The Covid-19 pandemic demonstrated that companies in the life sciences space need to prioritise agility if they are to be better prepared for future shocks. Technology has a central role to play in helping businesses improve operational efficiency and Arpita’s experience in the application of data, analytics and automation helps businesses to do just that, while also driving revenue generation and cost savings.”

Life sciences companies face mounting pressure from increasing regulatory requirements, nonstop technological advances, and intense pricing pressure. On top of this, the unprecedented events of the pandemic have provided more reason to modernise compliance, and elevate the value and partnerships within companies. As such, demand from consultants to help navigate these pressures is high.
