Ernst & Young LLP announced today that Kim Ramko, Principal and Advisory Life Sciences Lead, has been recognized by the life sciences journal PharmaVOICE as one of the ‘100 Most Inspiring People in the Life Sciences Industry’ for 2013. Ramko was selected from a deep and impressive list of nominees for her collaborative, forward-thinking approach to solving the industry’s most complex challenges.

“Kim’s visionary leadership, innovative solutions and purpose-driven commitment to the life sciences industry are indeed inspiring,” said Bob Patton, Americas Advisory Vice Chair for the global EY organization. “Kim is a trail blazer in every possible way and we are thrilled that her groundbreaking industry collaborations and dedication to her practice and clients are being recognized.”
