Moving on Up

BW__WH_thumb.jpgWe are pleased to announce the promotions of two of our team members into new roles:

Rebecca Whiting - QC Laboratory Manager. Beccy has taken position to support Yvonne MacLeod (Technical Manager) with the operational processes of the QC Laboratory. Beccy understands the needs of our clients, the core values of the business and excels in the training of analytical techniques which puts Beccy in a great position to facilitate the growth of the QC Team.

Waqar Hussain - Operations Manger (Stability Services) - Waqar has moved across from our Quality and Compliance Team to head up the Stability Services division. Waqar’s regulatory background and eye for detail are of paramount importance in ensuring the stability storage process remain efficient and compliant.

Chris Allen (Managing Director) commented “Congratulations to both Beccy and Waqar and this demonstrates our commitment to developing our leadership and management team from within. This process is often seen as the harder option in comparison to direct recruitment, but history has shown that giving these opportunities to those that understand our business and the needs of our clients delivers long term success. These changes form part of expanding our management infrastructure to facilitate the planned increase in operational staff over the coming months. We will have more internal promotions, some new starters and more job openings to announce soon so keep an eye on our website”.
