“We see significant growth potential in the APAC region. Nitin’s extensive experience and strong drive makes him a great fit to lead our operations and growth in the APAC region,” said Joanne Santomauro, Chief Executive Officer at Ancillare. “By expanding our operations in Asia-Pacific this strengthens our ability to provide our clients with a single source for all their clinical trial supply chain needs.”
Singapore along with our strategic depots in China and Korea will provide Ancillare with the gateway to the entire APAC region by incorporating standard processes and procedures under one quality driven operation. The Singapore Operation will augment Ancillare’s strategic and master depot network so that our sponsors’ clinical operations leaders will have one point of expert contact and one clinical supply chain to manage all global trials needs from pre-protocol launch and first patient/first visit through last patient/last visit, site closeout and reclamation.
