Real Chemistry
Jim Weiss, Shankar Narayanan

Jim Weiss, founder of Real Chemistry, is stepping down as CEO at O’Dwyer’s No. 1 healthcare firm on Jan. 3.

Shankar Narayanan, who led McKinsey & Co.’s healthcare and pharma group before exiting the consultancy in 2012 after a nearly 16-year run, will take the helm.

Weiss will join New Mountain Capital, an investor in Real Chemistry, and take the chairman position at the San Francisco-based PR firm.

As chairman, Weiss will serve as mentor and strategic advisor to clients, while exploring growth opportunities through mergers & acquisitions, partnerships and expansion of capabilities.

Besides McKinsey, Narayanan was COO of Equian and global head of life sciences at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

Weiss said Narayanan has the right expertise and leadership track record “to continue building a company based on helping clients transform in the post-pandemic age of digital health.”
