Denis Paquet joined PPD as a senior finance analyst in June 2020 to support AES in labor analytics and capacity planning, and to provide ad hoc analytical support for sites and leadership. Prior to joining PPD, Denis worked as a senior finance analyst with Froedtert South (a two-hospital system in Southeast Wisconsin) and as a consultant with Huron Consulting Group, where he supported implementations with hospitals in Illinois, California and Missouri. Denis also served 10 years in the U.S. Navy as an interpreter.
I help provide additional support to the sites in terms of capacity planning, performance analysis and other ad hoc analytics.
More about Denis
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
We have a good team with AES. From talent acquisition to the sites, to the support staff such as finance, it’s a great team to work with, and so I enjoy being able to provide a variety of support to these different groups.
What makes you happy to be part of AES?
It’s rather cliché to say, but I really enjoy the people I work with. I can say my boss is one of the best I’ve worked for. Our territory directors and site leaders are all a great group of people whom I’ve enjoyed working with and getting to know the past year and a half.
How does working at AES help you maintain a work-life balance?
My wife and I recently had a baby boy, Joseph Dominic. The support from the entire team, even though we’re a remote group spread across the country and into Europe, has been great.
Professionally, I think there’s always more to learn. I’ve been learning more about a new industry, clinical research, since coming here a year and a half ago.
