Frauenfeld, Switzerland, and Heathrow, Florida, USA, 6 December 2022 – Stonehaven Consulting AG and Cozmix Inc., today announced their merger to form SC Group, creating a life sciences consultancy focused on organic and inorganic growth strategies, commercial resource allocation including sales force optimization and territory alignment, and a range of other specialist services.

Stonehaven Consulting’s heritage in commercial strategy complements Cozmix’s focus on commercial resource allocation. The combination of these areas of expertise will cover the entire commercial value chain, from strategic concept to commercial execution, to the benefit of our clients.

Together, Stonehaven and Cozmix will have a significantly enhanced global footprint, with office locations and legal entities in the US, UK, and Switzerland servicing a wider range of key markets. SC Group’s management consists of four experienced Partners, including Juerg Baggenstoss, Ralph Heuser, Matthias Hofer and Steve Maughan, under the Chairmanship of George Gunn.

The new company will offer a wide range of commercial consultancy services for life science companies, from strategy development through to implementation and best-in-class commercial execution. It combines Stonehaven Consulting’s strength in animal health and human MedTech corporate and commercial strategy, as well as transaction advisory services, with Cozmix’s commercial resource optimization platform and software. These help clients to accurately determine the optimal size, structure, and intentional deployment of their commercial resources.

Cozmix’s unique software suite, AlignMix, enables customers to balance workloads across sales territories and analyze customer potential in a fast and easy-to-use format for major countries worldwide.

“The creation of SC Group brings major opportunities for our clients to grow their business through intentional resource allocation driven by fact-based, rational decision making. Combining Stonehaven’s expertise in strategy and data analytics with Cozmix’s commercial and territorial optimization skills allow us to support our clients with an unrivalled understanding of the commercial value drivers in global life-sciences,” said Steve Maughan, SC Group Partner, and previously President and Founder of Cozmix.

“SC Group is built on a vision of enabling and accelerating growth through better data, the right strategy and optimized commercial resource allocation for life sciences,” said George Gunn, Chairman of SC Group and previously founder and partner of Stonehaven Consulting. “With an overriding commitment to our customers’ success, we’re confident our existing and future clients will benefit greatly from this unique combination of talent and expertise in one of the world’s most important industries.”
