Putnam, a leader in strategy consulting for life sciences, announces its January 2023 promotions – with Joanna Rys to Partner! The firm continues to grow and expand – and these colleagues have been an important part in the firm’s journey, especially throughout the last year.

With Joanna’s 7-year tenure with the firm, she has seen impactful growth and positive change. She joined in December 2015 as a Life Sciences Consultant (LSC) – the first LSC in the San Francisco office (4th employee in the San Francisco office as well). Joanna received a PhD in Bioengineering from US Berkeley-UCSF with a Management of Technology minor from the Haas School of Business. She did her undergrad at the University of Minnesota earning a BS in Biomedical Engineering (and minored in Management). Joanna works primarily in Putnam’s commercial practice area, focusing on oncology, hematology, and rare diseases.

When asked what she is most excited about, Joanna shared, “I’m excited to continue to grow in this role and push the boundaries on our practices, helping our clients tackle their most challenging questions through a collaborative approach rooted in strategy and science. I’m also looking forward to further supporting our Putnam village, creating an inclusive environment and helping the next set of leaders to achieve their own goals.”

When Joanna is not working hard for the firm’s clients and her peers, she enjoys outdoor adventures including hiking, rock climbing, and traveling with family.

Please join us in congratulating Jo on her promotion to Partner and our collective January 2023 promotees!
