Kx Advisors Spotlight: Brett Larson

From Chemistry To Healthcare Consulting

What do chemistry students and strategy consultants have in common? Those interested in either field solve problems by analyzing both the big picture and the small details. Brett Larson, Kx Advisors Principal, is a prime example of the overlap between the disciplines. After pursuing his Bachelor’s in Chemistry at Amherst College, he delved into medical research, helping establish a trauma physiology research lab at the University of Vermont and presenting his findings alongside medical doctors. He launched his career on his deep analytical skillset and interest in strategy. Like many of his Kx colleagues, Brett Larson shifted his interests from the clinical to the business side of the healthcare industry.

Delivering First-Class Strategy with Kx

As a strategy consultant and researcher in the healthcare industry, Brett was ready for a career move that would both utilize his critical-thinking approach and build upon his strong managerial skills. His work at Kx supporting pharma and medical device clients requires him to draw from his inquisitive background. Brett turns market findings into actionable recommendations for clients and drives success as a leader within the firm. Brett says, “Mentoring junior consultants is highly motivating and fulfilling. My goal is always to share my knowledge and approach to problem-solving. I want to make sure my teammates have space to work through their own unique process to solve our client’s business challenges.”

Outside of the office, Brett, an avid skier, can be found hitting the slopes. He also spends time volunteering through a local homeless services organization and serves on their Board of Directors. When he isn’t traveling, he enjoys working in our Boston office or teleworking with his two favorite officemates: his black labs!

Interested In Healthcare Strategy Consulting?

Brett encourages those looking to get into healthcare consulting to weigh as much value on the corporate culture as much as the specific role. Many healthcare consulting companies will have access to data sets and resources, but Brett believes that Kx Advisors’ people are what makes our healthcare consulting firm exceptional, saying, “Having colleagues you can count on through challenges and inspire you to push your intellect will make all the difference.” Have questions about our work?
