Connect With Me

Peter Gallagher, based in New York, is a core member of Egon Zehnder’s Health Practice. Drawing on diverse biopharma industry experience in commercial, strategic and operational roles, Peter advises CEOs and leadership teams of healthcare services and life sciences companies on the assessment and development of executive talent.

What energizes me is exploring ideas with curious, courageous leaders who want to seize new opportunities and strengthen their capabilities to build innovative, engaged organizations.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Peter led Strategic Affairs at the specialty pharma company Teligent. Previously he served in commercial, business development, and strategy roles at Bausch+Lomb and Merck/MSD in Brazil. Peter also contributed to the launch of Merck’s consumer health business in the country. Peter began his healthcare career during the transformation of Schering-Plough, initially in Supply and Technical Operations and then working with the CEO on the company’s global turnaround agenda. Earlier, he served as an Officer in the U.S. Navy’s nuclear-power program.

Peter earned his Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from the University of Virginia and an MBA in finance from New York University. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family, reading about geopolitics, and training for triathlons.
