Matt D’Auria is a healthcare communications industry veteran with profound respect for the science behind today’s innovative medicines. As CEO, he drives the fusion of strategy, scientific rigor, creativity, and digital innovation that distinguishes the HCG agencies as world-leading medical communications firms. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, with a BS in molecular and cell biology, Matt continued his education and received an executive certificate in pharmaceutical drug development from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. His career began in the laboratory as a bench scientist studying signal transduction pathways in diabetes mellitus, and now, more than 20 years later, he’s at the forefront of medical education innovation.
Matt is a novice wine collector with a particular fondness for a well-aged Barolo. He enjoys cooking and is happiest when his kitchen is full of family and close friends.
Earlier in his career as a CPA at Arthur Andersen, Brian managed business advisory and acquisition engagements with some of the world’s most prestigious organizations, ranging from consumer packaged goods to advertising firms, including HCG’s parent, Omnicom Group. He has drawn on this experience extensively, to the benefit of both his internal- and external-facing responsibilities as HCG’s global CFO and COO.
Brian, a passionate advocate for our people, works with HCG's business leaders and clients to create value through optimization, efficiency, and creative solutions. In no industry, perhaps, is this more relevant than in the healthcare sector. Brian has been a partner to both our large pharmaceutical and small biotech clients in overcoming the challenges they increasingly face with regard to financial scarcity and a general deleveraging of a legacy infrastructure built on the backs of blockbuster, mass-market products.
Brian’s current passion outside of work centers around everything “kids.” Process optimization and efficiency do not seem to be at the forefront of his 3 small boys’ agenda.

Through her 20 years of experience, she has perfected the ability to build strategic road maps for new and existing brands and to create immersive storytelling experiences, based on smart, competent solutions, which truly create medical education that sticks.
Before becoming involved with medical education, Delphine was a general practitioner in Paris. She received her MD from the University of Paris, Faculté de Médecine Saint-Antoine, and an MBA from the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris, where she currently teaches global launches and multichannel planning.
Despite her successful career in the US, she will never give up French wine, bread, and celebrating Bastille Day.
A communications counselor and strategist, Mary Rofael, MD, has more than 20 years’ experience leading regulatory communications, medical affairs, and publications programs for innovative pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotechnology companies.

Mary has led the assessment of drug development plans and data for an extensive portfolio of treatments across numerous therapeutic areas and strategic challenges. She has evaluated data packages to identify and address potential clinical and regulatory hurdles, worked with clients to build credible and compelling messages and presentations, and trained client teams to manage issues and to handle objections. She is an experienced facilitator with a focus on moderating communication strategy sessions.
As president of ProEd Regulatory, Mary directs ProEd’s industry-leading Regulatory Communications operating unit. She leads teams of MDs, PhDs, and PharmDs, regulatory and client service professionals, designers, and communications coaches to address their clients’ needs across audiences and therapeutic areas.

Bill lives in Darien, Connecticut, with his wife, Wendy; 3 children; and too many dogs. Boating, gardening, and golf are his part-time passions. With a name like Mulligan, he should be a better golfer, but he’s not.
Stephen joined Chameleon in 2004 as editorial director, but over the next few years he found himself transitioning into client service and management roles, first heading up a client service team and eventually being appointed commercial director, then president of the London office, president of the European operation, and most recently president responsible for global strategy and growth. Stephen ensures Chameleon is focused on the future, to provide the cutting-edge strategy, service, and creativity on which its reputation is based. Externally, Stephen has been driving the CSpirit community engagement program, with specific emphasis on diversity and inclusion, purpose, sustainability, and charitable giving.
Stephen graduated from the University of Leeds with a degree in physiology, specializing in neuroscience, and, after some experience working in marketing, found his way into medical communications.
Outside of work, Stephen enjoys spending time with his family, exploring the great outdoors, and climbing mountains with like-minded friends, while wearing dinner suits in an endeavor known as extreme dining.
Guided by Jan-Willem, HSC's purpose-built teams have demonstrated a unique ability to help their clients translate the science of their products and the pathogenesis of associated diseases into clinically relevant and scientifically accurate information understandable by the target audience. Translation of the science is the basis of a scientific platform and development of a scientific brand and is crucial to successful new product launches and life-cycle management. With a medical degree as well as PhD in medicine and an MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business, Jan-Willem has a deep understanding not only of the scientific side of the business, but also the business side of the science. This helps him take a holistic approach to issues, weighing the viewpoints of all stakeholders and their importance to create a complete picture and develop the best client solutions in a rapidly changing environment.
Jan-Willem regularly travels back to his home country, the Netherlands, to visit family, buy Dutch cheese and licorice, and watch his favorite sport, field hockey.
