Dave Russell-Graham - Pharmaceutical & Business Development Consultant

Dave has over 30 years’ pharmaceutical development experience, having joined Glaxo SmithKline directly from school. There, he attained a chemistry degree through part-time study. Following career progression with GSK, which gained him experience across all areas of inhaled product development, he moved to Pfizer as an aerosol scientist at a time when Pfizer began to invest heavily in respiratory product development. Dave became a key player in the development of the relationship between Pfizer and Mylan for the respiratory technology platform. This resulted in his appointment at Mylan as Commercial Manufacturing Liaison, coinciding with the respiratory group’s commencement of operations in Sandwich and Dublin.

During his career, Dave has been exposed to a number of international markets including the USA, France, Ireland and China, and has developed a wide network of contacts. Since leaving Mylan Dave has launched a Project Management Consultancy which now serves a diverse range of clients focused on pharmaceutical technologies and business development. Dave is an inward investment manager for INVEST Essex, covering the life sciences and MedTech sectors. With Coalesce he assists in our pharmaceutical and business development activities.

Despite living in the far south of England, he is an avid follower of Carlisle United and a long-standing member of the London Branch of their Supporters’ Club.
