Ipsos: Appointment of Dr Bonnie Bain as Global Head of Healthcare


Paris, September 11, 2023 – I am pleased to announce that Dr Bonnie Bain, PhD has been appointed Global Head of Healthcare and will join us on 11th September. She will replace Michael Spedding, who retires at the end of the year.

Bonnie brings a wealth of valuable experience and expertise to the role and a wonderfully positive, inclusive approach. She has over 20 years’ experience in the healthcare sector and a proven track record of developing innovative solutions on both the client and agency side of the business. Prior to joining Ipsos, she was Global Head of Pharma and Executive VP of Healthcare Operations & Strategy at GlobalData Plc. Under her leadership, GlobalData launched several premium syndicated, multi-client and custom offerings in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. Bonnie is also passionate about diversity and inclusion initiatives and served as the executive sponsor for GlobalData’s Employee Resource Group on Race and Ethnicity.

She was Vice President and Global Research & Analysis Director for Informa’s Pharma Division, where she successfully co-led the integration of Datamonitor Healthcare into Informa’s Pharma Intelligence business, revamped the portfolio, and launched new product and line extensions, resulting in double digit increases in profit. She also expanded the portfolio to include more rigorous primary research, epidemiology, emerging markets, and event-driven updates, and transformed the analyst team from a UK-centric team to an international presence based in the US, UK, India, and Asia-Pacific.


Bonnie is a frequent speaker at industry events and works closely with clients in a variety of industries including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, professional services, financial markets, and technology. She holds a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Purdue University and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Molecular Pharmacology at the University of Miami School of Medicine.
