David Coman is the chief executive officer of Science 37, which makes it easier for people to participate in clinical research by connecting patients with doctors and nurses through telemedicine visits and home health screenings, then managing trial logistics from an integrated, comprehensive platform.
David came to Science 37 from ERT, where he led its data and analytics business after serving as the company’s chief strategy officer. As the leader of ERT’s data and analytics business, David reimagined the way the pharmaceutical industry looks at performance and risk management for clinical trials while more than doubling the company’s bookings from analytics over a two-year period. In his strategy role, David spearheaded the acquisition of four companies in a 12-month period, generating more than $1 billion in enterprise value, while repositioning ERT as the market leader in clinical trial data generation.
David joined ERT from Quintiles (now IQVIA), where as chief marketing officer and founder of its Digital Patient business, he helped lead the company’s growth from $2.7 billion in 2007 to $4.3 billion in 2015. It was here that David pioneered some of the industry’s first decentralized clinical trials while also driving significant growth and enterprise value.
Prior to Quintiles, David was the chief marketing officer at Dendrite International, which is also now owned by IQVIA. Earlier in his career, David held a variety of marketing leadership roles in telecommunications, including AOL Local & Long Distance (Talk America), Excel Communications, and Aerial Communications.
David earned his B.A. in advertising from Michigan State University and his MBA in marketing, entrepreneurship, and finance from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
