Neal Somchand, MSc

Principal, Tokyo

Neal has been a part of Deallus for over four years and has over eight years of experience as a consultant for medical device and pharmaceutical companies. Neal has managed projects across various geographies, with a large amount taking place in Japan and central Europe. He has expertise in a number of different therapy areas including immune-oncology and orphan diseases, and his experience with pricing and reimbursement as well as product and portfolio planning are an asset to the team.

What do you bring to Deallus and clients that is unique?

I think the biggest thing is my experience in living and working in Europe, Japan and India. It’s given me a lot of exposure to these three cultures and I try to act as a bridge between them. I really try to do this with my Japanese clients, to help them understand global contexts and mindsets, but also for our global clients with affiliates in Japan, helping them understand the context and nuance of Japan.

Life outside of work

I love cooking. I’m a vegan so am passionate about cooking healthy foods for myself but I also use cooking as a sort of meditative practice. And I’ve recently gotten really into swimming – I’ve started swimming a lot of open water races in Japan and have set myself a goal of swimming the English Channel in the next few years.
