Data Driven solutions for complex business environments


Brian R. Taubenheim

Founder and Principal

Brian started Wilco with a focus on providing services to small and growing businesses.  His entrepreneurial passion and desire to combine business, science, and project management to achieve high impact objectives made this a natural fit. 

Prior to Wilco, Brian was a US Marine, spent 10 years in varying roles from lab to management in the fine chemical industry then 7 years in pharma reporting to executive teams in roles from program lead, business development, alliance management, and chemical development. 

He holds a Bachelors in Chemistry from Lakeland College, a Master's Certification in Project Management from UW-Madison, a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification, a MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and a MSc in Predictive Analytics (data science) from Northwestern University.


Wilco Consulting LLC was formed in February 2014 in the State of North Carolina.  The company's first clients were startups and small pharma and biotech companies that needed assistance in raising funds, program design, business planning, or drug manufacturing and supply chain.  In that first year, Wilco was able to help its clients secure millions of dollars in funding from non-dilutive government sources, receive NDA (new drug application) approval, and the commercial launch of a drug in the US market.

In 2015-16 Wilco continued to work primarily with pharma industry clients on projects in supply chain planning, process development and validation, regulatory agency interactions, and securing funding.  These projects resulted in multiple INDs (investigational new drug) applications, substantial funding, supply agreements, and manufacturing process improvements.  In 2017, Wilco began to expand its service offering to include data analytics.  At first this became an add-on service that pharma clients were excited to have available.  Later clients outside of the pharma industry were utilizing Wilco's services for projects in sales forecasting, market analysis, and operations planning.

In 2018, Wilco reorganized its service offerings.  Wilco still continues to offer the same services as it has provided in the past.  However, the broad applicability of data analytics allows Wilco to expand into other industries while utilizing the business and organizational support methodologies and structures it has successfully employed over the previous years. This combination of skill sets allows Wilco to provide structured and balanced engagements for its clients maintaining the necessary focus on both business and technical objectives.
