About Us

Inside Snow

In 2001, we founded the first patient engagement company in health. Today, Snow Companies’ workforce counts over 330 staff and represents close to 200 disease states, recording double-digit growth rates for several years in a row. Nobody talks to more patients or has a more diverse and engaged patient community than Snow Companies.

Brenda Snow

Founder & CEO

The patient revolution started with a single story from the first Patient Ambassador®

Our belief in the power of stories comes from a very personal place. After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Brenda Snow used her experience and entrepreneurial spirit to help people living with chronic conditions connect and share their stories. She pioneered the way pharma talks about—and talks with—patients and caregivers. Brenda was twice named one of the 100 Most Inspiring People in the pharmaceutical industry by PharmaVOICE magazine and received recognition from numerous NGOs worldwide.
