Winton Gibbons is a consultant focused on market assessment, business development, strategy, and new product innovation. His background is unique, as it merges experience as a top-tier consultant with McKinsey, as a partner with investment bank William Blair, and as an executive in industry as a VP with Roche Diagnostics, and SVP roles with various mid-sized diagnostic and life science firms.
Most recently, Winton completed four projects for a major diversified life science firm. These included assessment of adjacent service and product markets, support for divisional strategic planning, and a 5-year analysis and synthesis of key initiatives. Other recent engagements included an assessment of the physician office laboratory market for a top 3 medical device firm, and development of a companion diagnostics assessment and deployment process for a top 5 biopharma firm.
He has also conducted numerous engagements and executive counseling for early- and mid-stage in-vitro diagnostic and life science firms.
Winton’s most recent industry position was as Senior Vice President for Corporate Development at Agena Bioscience, which makes genetic testing equipment.
