OVERLAND PARK, KS (May 24, 2018) Intouch Solutions, a marketing agency serving the pharmaceutical industry, is proud to announce that Faruk Capan, CEO, and Jess Seilheimer, senior vice president of strategic development, have been named to PM360’s ELITE 100. The leading healthcare magazine named Capan a 2018 transformational leader and Seilheimer a top strategist.

Those named to the PM360 ELITE 100 represent the most influential people in the healthcare industry today. Recipients are true catalysts who generate extraordinary results, helping design the future of healthcare. The award, which is now in its fourth year, stands for Exceptional Leaders Innovators Transformers and Entrepreneurs.

Capan has proven himself a true visionary. Under his leadership Intouch Solutions flourished, expanding from a startup located in Capan’s home, to a 700-person full-service agency with offices in Kansas City, Chicago, New York, London and Mumbai.

“Faruk’s humble, inspiring leadership touches everyone around him,” said Wendy Blackburn, executive vice president, marketing and communications. “He is always pushing us to do more and think differently.”

Over the course of Intouch’s 19 years in business, Capan has been called a mentor, fearless leader, and innovator-in-chief by employees and peers. His knack for recognizing where the industry is headed, investing in revolutionary ideas and sharing his vision showcases his role as a transformational leader.

“I’m honored to be recognized as one of PM360’s ELITE 100,” said Capan. “In this constantly evolving and heavily regulated industry, the ability to adjust and innovate are key. As Intouch continues to evolve its role in the pharmaceutical industry, I want to thank all of our employees for their continued commitment to meeting the needs of clients and expanding what can be done with modern marketing.”

Jess Seilheimer uses her more than 15 years of consumer and healthcare marketing experience to lead business development and client strategy within the Intouch Solutions’ client portfolio. Her focus has been on digital business transformation, innovation, insights and strategic planning, branding, positioning, digital marketing, customer engagement, and user experience.

Seilheimer is known for simplifying complex issues, seeing the big picture and making the most of opportunities. She believes a smart strategy starts and ends with data/analytics and the foundation is built on a great insight. Everything Seilheimer does lives at the intersection where trends and technology shape culture, behaviors and experiences.

“I’m humbled and grateful to be named as one of PM360’s ELITE strategists,” said Seilheimer. “Every day I’m inspired by the work I do with my colleagues and clients. It’s a privilege to work at a company where strategy, innovation and data have such a prominent role in our day-to-day work.”

There were more than 500 submissions for this year’s PM360 ELITE Awards. Nominees were evaluated based on their “accomplishments; testimonials from their bosses, clients, and colleagues; and supporting evidence that reflects the impact of their efforts,” according to PM360.
