Peter Nichol is a highly respected BRM as the Director, Research and Development, IT Portfolio Management, at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, a biotechnology company with a market capitalization of $40 billion.
As a BRMP®, CBRM®, MBRM®, and organizational change leader, he has fully embraced the BRM Institute’s approach for business partner value realization.
Peter led a departmental wide initiative to enable the Resource and Demand Management capability to align demand and capacity. Previously, the Research and Development IT department of 404 employees and contractors had no way to match incoming work from business partners (demand) to the provider’s ability to deliver (capacity). This inability to anticipate, predict, and model demand created enormous resourcing and staffing problems throughout the year as we enabled science to medicine across twenty-three scientific areas.
With strong support from a visionary executive team, Peter partnered and educated six departmental BRMs, twenty-nine program and project managers, and eight functional managers who together enabled the science of getting critical medicine to patients.
“Your efforts are solidifying the success and adding to the credibility of BRM as a discipline on a global scale. Being recognized as a top BRM recognizes your impact on people, BRMs, and organizations everywhere. Thank you for making a difference!” — Aaron Barnes, CEO BRM Institute
“As a Master BRM, I take enormous pride in shaping the future of the BRM discipline. It’s a rare experience when you’re arm-in-arm with fellow BRM practitioners collaborating to design the foundation of relationship management to be used for generations to come. I would be remiss if I didn’t send out a hearty thank you to my amazing team of leaders that day-over-day are enabling science through technology. Success is always shared. My organization’s executive leadership team and fellow BRMs have always been supportive and open to ideas that position us better for tomorrow but require change today. It’s amazing being part of #OneTeam. A big shout out to all the global leaders who have contributed to advancing the BRM profession this year! I look forward to seeing you all at the BRMConnect in Boston, Massachusetts and the BRMConnect in Amsterdam, Netherlands in 2020!” — Peter B. Nichol
