2022 Video Presentation

On behalf of all of us at Outsourced Pharma and Life Science Leader, we would like to extend a sincere congratulations to the 2022 CMO Leadership Award winners. Louis Garguilo, Chief Editor of Outsourced Pharma, shares a special message with winning companies and their employees - who’s hard work and dedication helped them achieve high ratings from their customers.

 

A Strategic Tool For Companies Who Outsource

The vetting process for selecting outsourcing partners is time consuming and complex. To support the process, Life Science Leader and Outsourced Pharma developed the CMO Leadership Awards in 2011. We think sponsor company opinions are important and credible — that’s why the awards are based on customer feedback. Winning CMOs are chosen through impartial market research based on feedback from sponsor companies that utilize outsourcing services.

Primary market research by Industry Standard Research (ISR) is the basis of the awards. Sponsors provide ratings of CMOs based on recent outsourced projects. This experiential feedback is analyzed by sponsor company size to reveal leading CMOs in different performance categories. For details on the research methodology, visit isrreports.com.

2022 CMO Leadership Awards Issue

Survey Methodology: ISR's Contract Manufacturing Quality Benchmarking research is conducted annually via an online survey. For the 2022 CMO Leadership Awards, 86 CMOs were evaluated on 23 performance metrics. Research participants were recruited from biopharmaceutical companies of all sizes and were screened for decision-making influence and authority when it comes to working with CMOs. Respondents only evaluated companies with which they had worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months. This level of qualification ensures that ratings come from actual involvement with a business and that companies identified as leaders are backed by experiential data. CMOs must meet the minimum threshold of customer survey responses to be eligible for an award.

 

The CMO Leadership Awards Ceremony & Reception is not associated with DCAT or DCAT Week.

The CMO Leadership Awards recognize top outsourcing partners, determined by feedback from sponsor companies who outsource manufacturing. The awards are presented by Life Science Leader, Outsourced Pharma, and Industry Standard Research. Life Science Leader is a business journal for executives in emerging biotech through big pharma.
