FAIRFIELD, N.J. -- November 6, 2013

The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) is pleased to announce
Quintiles’ Women Inspired Network (WIN) as the winner of the 2013 HBA ACE
Award. HBA created the award to recognize corporations’ efforts to strengthen
the Advancement, Commitment and Engagement (ACE) of women’s careers in the
healthcare industry. The ACE award will be presented on November 14 at the
2013 HBA Leadership Conference in Boston, Mass.

"Internal corporate initiatives that support women are critical to realize
business performance results, including innovation and retention. The annual
HBA ACE Award honors internal leadership programs that perform,” says Terri
Pascarelli, HBA president and vice president for client development at
YourEncore Inc. "We're so proud to honor the Quintiles program as the first
ACE winner that is a provider of biopharmaceutical development and commercial
outsourcing services. This mirrors the expanding breadth of the HBA."

Quintiles’ WIN program works to establish a corporate culture that inspires
women to be leaders. It fosters recognition that diverse leadership enhances
business success and makes Quintiles an employer of choice for talented women
in the healthcare industry. The network has grown exponentially over the past
few years, spanning all segments of the organization and every corner of the
globe, including Asia, Japan, Africa, India, Latin America, the U.S. and
Europe. Quintiles offers unique opportunities for WIN members to discuss
leadership through groups such as the WIN book club, coaching program and
informal conversations with Quintiles leaders. WIN also partners with the
national and local HBA chapters for insight, benchmarking and programming
ideas.To learn more about Quintiles’ WIN, watch this video.

“Winning the 2013 HBA ACE Award validates Quintiles’ significant efforts to
foster the development of women leaders throughout our organization and the
industry,” said Tom Pike, chief executive officer at Quintiles. “WIN is a very
important part of the fabric of our organization and one of the great
catalysts we have internally for leadership development. Women comprise about
65% of Quintiles’ population and we promote the idea that women innovate,
achieve business goals and advance Quintiles’ industry leadership in every job
throughout the company.”

A panel of industry leaders judged entrants against five criteria: measurable
results and impact on target population; degree to which it supports the
overall business; stewardship, or depth of commitment to the program;
effectiveness of the execution; and built-in sustainability.

Judges for the ACE award were:

    management at the Haas School of Business

The ACE Award builds on the HBA’s leadership role in recognizing women in the
healthcare industry and creating high-profile role models. The HBA Woman of
