Why we are

You may want to know who we are. The answer to that is fairly simple: Maven is an agency partner for healthcare companies that offers a spectrum of personalized support – from full strategic partnership to cost-effective tactical execution.

But the more important question is why we are. Above all, Maven exists because we weren’t happy with the status quo. We believed in building an agency that works better for everyone. Our approach means greater accountability to our clients, and a more rewarding work environment for our employees.

From start to finish, my experience with Maven has been nothing short of amazing for the past 6 years.

Dave and his team consistently deliver on their core values. The Maven team listens to our needs, uncovers insights, probes to ask question, is never afraid to offer suggestions that may go in a different direction but overall delivers exceptional results! I can trust Maven that they will deliver the best product on time in the most cost-effective way.

I also appreciate that the Maven team is responsive, and I truly feel like they are an extension of my brand team with the same objectives and goals in mind. Dave has challenged me numerous times (for the better!) and has helped me see alternative solutions and opportunities.

What sets this team apart is their commitment to collaboration and communication. I never have to worry about follow-ups because they’re always one step ahead of me. I have worked with several creative agencies in the pharmaceutical space, none come close to the level of excellence and professionalism by Maven. They truly understand pharma marketing and are innovative in bringing ideas to life!
