Henk de Wilde
Founder and Managing Director

Throughout my professional life, I have always liked to be challenged and challenge others to achieve the best we can. I have had the good fortune of being able to do this at all positions I had, first in a pharmacy, then in a fast-growing Phase I Research Organization and lastly for many years in various positions at F. Hoffmann-La Roche.

My curiosity has allowed me to learn about the clinical development process first as project leader, then as global head of the project leaders and later as head of the oncology franchise. This last role allowed me to venture more into organizational development and process improvements, which has been my focus for many years now. Being in a leadership position has enabled me to take on all types of issues from improving patient recruitment, supporting the merger of two big companies to re-engineering the management of Trial Master File documentation. The downside of many leadership positions is that you are too far removed from the actual problems. In my role of site head for clinical operations in Basel, however, I interacted a lot with the people who do the actual work and was inspired by their enthusiasm and ownership to do the right thing for patients. This dedication is ultimately what drives any organization to success.


With the foundation of De Wilde Consulting GmbH this year, I can apply my knowledge of Good Clinical Practice compliance, my Dutch no-nonsense approach and my years of experience in business process optimization. This way I hope I can support small and midsize life science companies in finding the right balance of regulatory requirements and cost-efficient processes, ultimately allowing beneficial medicines to become available to patients faster.
