Key Staff

Our senior team offer a diverse blend of expertise. Over 60 years combined experience of working with, or in, the pharmaceutical industry is backed up by a powerful blend of marketing, statistical, editorial, regulatory and academic capability. Supported by our talented and enthusiastic writers, this mixture gives us the ability to rise to any challenge with innovative, effective and practical solutions.


Dr Barry Rodgers-Gray (Managing Director)

Barry has been with Strategen since 2002. Starting as a medical writer he rapidly rose to Deputy Managing Director before becoming Managing Director, on the basis of his ability to help clients identify and prioritise their needs, and then provide them with imaginative, targeted and effective solutions. His combination of strategic acumen coupled with his ability to identify what needs to be communicated, to whom, and how this can be achieved, mean that Barry is always in demand by his large number of long-term clients. Outside the office, Barry can usually be found enjoying time with his family, preferably with a good book close at hand.


Dr John Fullarton

John has been involved in the pharmaceutical industry for over 30 years, typically using his IT and statistical expertise to provide bespoke, specialist resources and insight. This has included the development of web-based audit tools, customisable budget impact models, analysis data for publications, development of disease scoring systems and research into key drivers of behaviour using our powerful proprietary Decision Research® methodology, which John developed. He has worked with Strategen since the company’s inception and has been a full time member of the team for over a decade. Away from the computer screen, John enjoys hurling himself down mountains on skis and stargazing, although he does prefer to keep the two separate.


James Edwards

Starting in 2010, James provides nearly a decade of experience working within the pharmaceutical industry and provides key account and project management skills in his role as Senior Business Manager. Bringing a crucial dimension to Strategen, James provides essential IT and statistical analysis expertise. James is on hand to aid in the development of budget impact models, computer programmes, cost calculators, apps and websites as well as providing unique statistical analysis for audits and real world evidence studies.  In his spare time you can find James in the middle of a scrum on a rugby pitch or at home engrossed in a Netflix series.


Ross Buchan

Ross began his Strategen career as a seasonal intern between 2007 and 2011 before becoming a full time, valued member of the team.  During his time at Strategen Ross has moulded into his current role as Senior Business Manager seamlessly. Using knowledge of the company, he is an effective project manager, supervising day to day running of projects and regulating account and company finances. With an eye for detail and friendly persona, Ross also mediates internal training and monitoring of internal procedures to enhance office operations and staff development. Away from work, you can find Ross out and about helping charities through Round Table and influencing the local community.
