"My career has offered me the opportunity to not only provide eclinical services but also receive these services as a customer. During my recent position at Kendle, I developed a relationship with OmniComm and was quite impressed the people, the leadership, and of course the technology. I am very happy to be part of this organization and to lead this team of talented individuals. I am dedicated to operational excellence and look forward to sharing insights from years in the field with OmniComm's clients and colleagues."
