9/28/2010 7:51:17 AM

28 September 2010 -- UK-based global Clinical Research Organisation (CRO), ClinTec International has further established its US presence with the appointment of new Executive Vice President, Dr Dianne Kikta.

Dr Kikta is based in the Philadelphia area and will augment ClinTec’s US operations and Global HQ management team to offer prospective pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device client’s guidance on their drug development and resourcing strategy with an emphasis on the emerging markets where ClinTec has a strong base.

Dr Kikta brings to ClinTec a wealth of experience from the pharmaceutical industry having worked for Wyeth for over 20 years, most recently as Vice President of Global Clinical Strategic Resourcing where she was responsible for providing strategic oversight of flexible resourcing to efficiently deliver clinical research services, especially through off-shoring and outsourcing.

Regarding her new role, Dr Kikta stated “I am excited to be a part of ClinTec, a growing CRO that doesn’t only work in support of the pharmaceutical industry, but also provides solutions through innovative resourcing and processes. I look forward to contributing to ClinTec’s future success by applying my experience in innovative global resourcing models and various strategic initiatives from Wyeth.

Having established Wyeth’s highly successful clinical research centre in India through a unique partnership approach, I have a firm understanding of the opportunities within the emerging markets for continued use of unique resourcing models. Working with ClinTec will allow me to use my numerous years of experience in one company to now influence many aspects of the industry.”

Senior Director of Corporate Development, Bobby Bal remarked “We are pleased to have Dianne on board to facilitate the next wave of strategic outsourcing partnerships with our growing US customer base. We believe that entering into creative discussion with the US pharmaceutical industry will help alleviate some of the immediate R&D pressures on cost and productivity and Dianne’s specific experience in global solution development will be of great use to our clients”.
