Ashley Yeo is attached to the medtech titles within Informa’s Pharma intelligence division.

As Health Care editor on In Vivo (monthly hardcopy and online daily services), he writes and commissions news and feature material to meet the strategic business and market access information needs of senior players and device makers as they move innovations into the global medtech market place.

As part of the Principal Analyst team, he also contributes news delivery and insight needs across the group’s other medtech titles in the field of market access (global regulatory, reimbursement, policy changes). Key areas of focus are Germany, the UK and global themes, and EU and other outside global regulatory insight.

A linguist by training, he joined what was later to become Informa in mid-1988 as a French and German news reporter (with some other European languages also in the mix), and has been editor of three of the group’s titles (including Clinica) over a 14-year-period.

These duties are combined with supporting the growing Ask The Analyst service. He says: “This helps us as a group keep a close relationship with long-term and potential subscribers in a sector where insight and knowledge are key to our clients’ commercial success.”
