William King
founder and executive chairman of Zephyr Health

Zephyr Health has smartly utilized tech to help life sciences companies connect with patients in need of therapies, generating an A-list of pharma, device, and diagnostic clients in the process. Its Zephyr Illuminate platform is generally considered one of the best of its kind, taking available data and transforming them into real-time insights. 

King’s health tech bona fides transcend his work at Zephyr. Prior to its founding, he held a range of sales, marketing, training, and strategy roles with Johnson & Johnson. He was a member of the company’s International Development Program for global leadership and professional development and still sits on the executive board of the American Heart Association research roundtable.

King’s public schedule remains quite active as well. He frequently speaks at industry conferences on a range of topics, with recent speaking engagements including “Big data and analytics: Strategy through execution,” “Game-changing technologies: The rise of blockchain,” and “Advancing technology in healthcare.”
