FAIRFIELD, N.J.May 16, 2019 — The Inception Company, a technology-driven engagement products and services company, is proud to announce that Shaun Urban, President, has been selected as one of the 2019 PM360ELITE 100 in the Transformational Leader category. The PM360 ELITE, standing for Exceptional • Leaders • Innovators • Transformers • Entrepreneurs, represent the most influential people in the healthcare industry today. The PM360editorial staff reviewed more than 500 submissions, and nominees were evaluated and selected based on their accomplishments and the impact of their efforts. A total of 100 winners were selected across 17 categories.

Shaun joined The Inception Company in January 2018 as President after 13 years at Ogilvy CommonHealth as a Managing Partner. He saw great potential in a new virtual meeting innovation, Pando, that the company was developing and immediately helped Inception commercialize and launch Pando by further defining the market potential for the technology, building an integrated sales and marketing plan within the Life Sciences market, and establishing a vision for product development, market expansion into other industry verticals, and evolving the business model to a software as a service (SaaS) offering. Shaun brought deep industry expertise, an extensive network of relationships, passion, and tenacity to his role as President, and quickly solidified Inception’s core production and meeting services business while catapulting Pando into the market well beyond forecast and expectations.

“I am honored to be selected for this prestigious award by PM360,” Shaun commented. “It has been an exciting time at The Inception Company, and I am thrilled to be contributing to its success. I am fortunate to enjoy what I do and to work with such talented people and committed clients. It is especially meaningful to be recognized among my peers.”
