PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte has appointed Mike DeLone as national sector leader for the life sciences practice in the U.S. effective immediately. DeLone succeeds Greg Reh, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, who will continue to serve as the global life sciences sector leader and global life sciences and health care industry leader.
"The life sciences industry is at a crossroads in every aspect of the business — from R&D to pricing and access to manufacturing processes and evolving personal therapies — going through unprecedented transformation," said DeLone.

I'm excited and humbled to lead an exceptional team of advisory, audit, consulting and tax professionals who are dedicated to helping our clients navigate an ever changing ecosystem by harnessing new digital platforms, capabilities, technologies and strategies."
As national sector leader, DeLone will lead overall strategic direction of the life sciences practice as well as its go-to-market strategies and resources. He will also maintain his role as life sciences consulting leader.
