About PCCI

The Pharmaceutical Consulting Consortium International Inc., is a social/ networking group of former pharmaceutical executives, managers and talent. Many offer their services as consultants to the healthcare industry.


Where & When

PCCI usually holds dinner meetings on the second Monday of the month at the Embassy Suites (directions) in Chesterbrook, PA. Members receive meeting notices by e-mail or view notices on this website. However, since COVID-19, meetings are virtual and will begin monthly in 2022.



In-person meetings begin with socializing around 6:30 pm, followed by dinner at 7:15 pm. Presentations begin at 8 pm and end before 10 pm. Dinner costs a flat fee of $50 for members and $65 for non members, and parking is free. Proceeds from the dinner go toward the guest speaker's dinner and general overhead. The balance goes into the PCCI treasury. Virtual meetings have limited networking before the main session and at the end of the meeting.


The meetings can be a mix of guest speakers or special “Mentor” presentations. The Mentor format is unique and stimulating. In this format, representatives of a company present their ideas and ask for input from the consulting members. Two or three members on a panel prepare formal comments, after which the rest of the group joins in with questions and comments.


In-person meetings begin with a cash bar and a buffet dinner, followed by a speaker of general interest, mostly to the pharmaceutical industry. Meetings generally hold about 30 attendees each month, both in-person and virtual. .



The members are friendly and have been helpful to those looking for consulting opportunities, seeking full-time employment, or to those who just want to meet and talk about past and present experiences. Some are retired from active consulting, some are still employed full-time, but many are actively offering their consulting services to the healthcare industry.


PCCI meetings are lively, stimulating and full of spirit. Please feel free to drop in on a meeting or reach us at



In Memoriam

PCCI President Don Skerrett passed away on May 21, 2021. 



Don’s health was suffering for the past year, yet he continued to put his energy into PCCI and life sciences projects.

Don became president of PCCI in 2000.  By 2004, he had transformed the organization from a social group to an expert consulting resource for life science start-ups.  He encouraged PCCI members to share their expertise at monthly meetings.  The expertise was gratis and the heart of the PCCI mission.


The monthly meetings bore the mark of his innovation and creativity.  He insisted on having an expert panel comment on every presentation since 2004.  It took a tremendous amount of his time to form these panels, but he held to this format for nearly twenty years until his passing. 


Don spoke very few words at the meetings and preferred to preserve time for the guest company, panel discussion and member comments.  He worked tirelessly behind the scenes. 

PCCI has lost a tremendous resource, as well as the loss of a leader in the life sciences community.
