Tim Sheppard, general manager of QuintilesIMS, has taken on new responsibilities at the company, which will see him lead the QuintilesIMS engagement with UK regulators, government, and industry bodies.

Following the merger of Quintiles and IMS Health last year, Tim will oversee the evolution of a unified company culture and will also facilitate collaboration across its broad range of capabilities whilst also leading on ongoing integration activities.

Tim has worked at QuintilesIMS since 2013 when he joined as general manager for IMS Health, United Kingdom and Ireland. Prior to joining the company, he led the healthcare sector at Unipart Expert Practice and served as director of the public sector for Dell Services.
