Most recently, Harrell spent seven years as a commercial business advisor at McKinsey & Company, where he advised clients in the healthcare, consumer products, and chemical industries and developed strategies around venture capital, portfolio management, pricing and more. In 2013, Harrell opened his own consulting practice, AH2 Management, where he advised clients in the biotech and pharmaceutical space on strategic partnerships, investor fundraising strategies, and commercial operations.

Prior to his consulting work and tenure at McKinsey & Company, Harrell served as chief commercial officer at Norbrook, a veterinary pharmaceutical company based in Ireland, where he led a 250- member global team across 12 countries and built best-in-class business strategies that increased market share and revenue for the company.

Harrell started his career in the life sciences, medical devices, and biotech sectors with responsibilities in business development, marketing, sales and alliance management, and finance. He spent close to 20 years at Johnson & Johnson developing his commercial skill set and then also worked at Novo Nordisk, where he built and led its sales operations infrastructure.

“It is an honor to join the PAN Foundation and advance its important mission on behalf of patients,” said Harrell. “I could not think of a more impactful organization to which I could bring the culminated experience from my career. I look forward to helping the organization expand its impact on healthcare access and affordability.”
