Consulting Magazine Honors Aspen Advisors’ Vince D’Itri at the Rising Stars Awards

D’Itri’s work aims to revolutionize clinical and translational research in the U.S.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 17, 2015

Vince D’Itri of Aspen Advisors, part of The Chartis Group, was recognized with a Rising Star of the Profession award by Consulting magazine last night in Chicago, IL. The award honors 35 consultants under the age of 35 whose work is redefining the consulting profession. D’Itri was honored as the healthcare industry category award winner for his career of making a meaningful impact for clients including recent work.

Over the past two years, D’Itri has been leading an effort to network academic medical centers and other notable institutions across the U.S. to identify and engage local patients for clinical trials and research studies through their electronic health records (EHRs). His team is tasked with creating the informatics tools and regulatory infrastructure that are required to leverage the EHR across participating sites, thereby across the nation. By increasing participants of clinical trials, making them more effective, new treatment options can come to market sooner.

“Vince was one of the first five consultants to join Aspen Advisors. It has been great to see what he’s accomplished since then, the growth in his career and the impacts he’s made for clients. He is skilled at understanding the client’s vision and managing each assignment to deliver meaningful results,” said Daniel Herman, Director and Informatics and Technology Practice Leader at The Chartis Group. “He also gives back to the profession by mentoring new consultants.”

“Consulting magazine’s Rising Stars of the Profession winners feature an impressive array of movers, shakers, and wunderkinds — leaders all who tend to deflect praise and prefer to credit those around them,” said Joe Kornik, Consulting magazine editor-in-chief. “In simplest terms, they want to change the world – or at least leave it in much better shape than they found it. They are, in a word, redefining the consulting profession. With so many outstanding nominations for just 35 awards, Vince is indeed in rare company.”

“It is an extraordinary honor and a much unexpected one at that,” said D’Itri. “To have been nominated by your colleagues means that not only are you providing value and making a difference for your clients, but your colleagues also care and are taking notice. That is a very special feeling that I will never forget.”
