Excellis Health Solutions
Excellence in Execution
Karan Narang is President, International of Excellis Health Solutions, a New
Hope, Pa.-based provider of strategy and implementation consulting
services within the Life Sciences and
Healthcare Industries on a global basis. Founded in 2010, Excellis is privately held and has over 400 years
of combined industry experience
in the Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, Manufacturing and
Consumer Package Goods fields.
Narang is an experienced consultant
specializing in the implementation of
pharmaceutical supply chain process,
technology, and data solutions. In recent years, he has been involved in the
implementation of Serialization and
Track and Trace Solutions for global
pharmaceutical organizations. He has
also been involved with multiple strategy developments, value realization
and data governance initiatives.
Ask Narang what he’s most proud of
and he’ll point to being instrumental in
the establishment and growth of Excellis Health Solutions, both domestically
within the U.S. and internationally in
other markets including UK, Europe,
Russia and India. More recently, he’ll
hang his hat on accelerating the growth
of the firm’s European business unit, 3C
Excellis Europe—resulting in 300 percent growth this year over last.
Part of the reason for that success, he
says, is the firm itself. “Being empow-
ered by Excellis to develop and execute
on our strategy” is one of the bigger dif-
ferentiators, he says. “The sense of be-
longing at Excellis and the trust that the
firm puts in me to do the right things to
help achieve the organizational goals.”
As a recognized thought leader, Excel-
lis has provided services for many lead-
ing Fortune 2000 companies, deploying

ject management services to help clients

Companies routinely turn to Excellis
for guidance and interpretation of business practices and emerging global trends
to support their internal goals. With deep
knowledge in SAP methodologies and
industry best practices, Excellis creates
exceptional breakthrough results, which
bring long-term value to customers.
Narang’s expertise areas include:
Program/project management; Pharmaceutical Supply Chain, Serialization, and Track and Trace Solutions;
Development and implementation of
Enterprise Serialization Data Standards and Processes; and Master Data
Management and Governance.
When it comes to the profession,
Narang says he enjoys meeting new
people on a daily basis with various
backgrounds and cultures. “The international exposure helps me become a well-rounded individual. I also enjoy facing
new challenges and developing creative
solutions for our clients,” he says.
Narang: This is recognition of my capabilities as a leader
in the consulting space and is affirmation of the same.
Its also important for the firm since it brings global
recognition alongside other well recognized firms such as
Bain, Booz Allen and PWC.
