With Pike’s appointment, the Martin Marietta board is comprised of 10 directors, five of whom have joined since 2016.

Prior to Quintiles, Pike spent 22 years at Accenture, a leading global professional services company, providing a broad range of services and solutions in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations. Since leaving Accenture in December 2009 and until joining Quintiles in April 2012, Pike was involved with a number of start-ups in the technology and healthcare sectors. Early in his career, Pike was a consultant at McKinsey & Co.

Ward Nye, chairman and chief executive officer, stated, “We are excited to welcome Tom to Martin Marietta’s board of directors. Tom brings significant experience in global M&A, strategic, operational, technology and risk management leadership to the Martin Marietta board from his role as CEO and a member of the board of directors of Quintiles, a Fortune 500 company before its merger with IMS Health. In addition, Tom is familiar with both Colorado and North Carolina, key states in Martin Marietta’s business. We believe this further strengthens our board, ensuring that we have the right mix of skills and experience to continue building on Martin Marietta’s long track record of success. We are confident that Tom will make an important and positive impact on our company.”
