About Trinity Partners, LLC

Trinity Partners is one of the fastest growing consulting firms in the health care industry, but with just three offices and over 100 employees, it has managed to keep its boutique feel. The Massachusetts-based firm has outposts, in New York City and San Francisco. 

Since its founding in 1996, Trinity has maintained a singular industry focus: advising life sciences companies on market strategy, brand tactics, forecasting, licensing and data analysis. Its clients include pharmaceutical, biotech, diagnostics and medical device providers, ranging from small companies to members of the Fortune 100. The firm's expertise spans all therapeutic areas, including oncology, autoimmune disease, central nervous system disorders, infectious diseases, cardiovascular health, metabolics, urology and gastrointestinal conditions. And, like a doctor with a patient, the firm prides itself on not stopping at a mere diagnosis of whatever happens to be ailing a client-it is committed to finding and implementing solutions as well. 

What sets Trinity apart from the rest is its consultants' ability to devise long-term, big-picture visions-or "roadmaps"-for clients, backed by industry expertise, quantitative focus, thorough research and evidence-based insights. Consultants combine strategic and technical services to add value and optimize solutions across all of a client company's practice areas. 

Trinity's offerings are further strengthened by its primary market research and advanced analytics practices. Both teams operate vertically as standalone groups, but they also support other strategic consulting efforts. The PMR team offers "opportunity assessment" by conducting quantitative and qualitative research, with insights from key stakeholders. This allows for customization and transparency in the analysis provided to clients. The advanced analytics team, led by statistics PhD Dr. Fotios Kokkotos, delivers market data not generally available from other sources by creating validated models from large pools of information.

Under his leadership, the firm reports that its consulting practice has achieved annual growth in excess of 20 percent.

Both Corcoran and Fitzhenry sit on the board of directors at the Sports Legacy Institute. Sports Legacy Institute's (SLI) mission is to investigate, educate, and raise awareness regarding health risks of contact sports. SLI considers brain trauma in sports to be a public health crisis.
