New York-based Big 4 firm Deloitte has appointed Asif Dhar to lead the firm’s U.S. life sciences and health care practice. He succeeds Doug Beaudoin, who recently became the firm’s CIO.
In his more than 10 years with Deloitte, Dhar has held positions as the firm’s federal health solutions leader and the life sciences and health care practice’s chief health informatics officer. In his new position, Dhar will lead overall strategic direction and implement go-to-market strategies for the practice’s more than 10,000 practitioners.
“Asif’s passion for the industry and his experience delivering the breadth and depth of Deloitte to solve complex business challenges makes him ideally suited for this role,” says Seema Pajula, vice chairman and U.S. industries and insights leader for Deloitte. “With his deep knowledge of both the life sciences and health care industries, I am confident in his ability to lead through today’s tumultuous times and bring pragmatic, implementable solutions to our clients.”
