Patrick Leong

Finance business partner focused on accelerating businesses growth

I have 15 years experience in Accounting and Finance, primarily in the healthcare industry. I advised businesses and clients in operational efficiencies for a sustainable financial model, which has led to bottom-line growth ranging from 42%-48%. I lead the development of annual fiscal plans, capital budgets, and forecasting by collaborating with the business leaders and executives.

I now oversee multiple businesses that vary in services to pharmaceutical manufacturers and have full P&L responsibilities for all. I partner with these businesses to provide meaningful and actionable insights to accelerate growth and mitigate potential risks.
