Quanticate Expands Recruitment Services With Appointment of John Hunter as Recruitment Consultant for North America

CAMBRIDGE, MA and LONDON--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - Quanticate, a global biometrics clinical research organization (CRO), today announced that it has appointed John Hunter as Recruitment Consultant for the North American market. Hunter will be responsible for further expanding the services of Quanticate People, the company's recruiting function, into the North American market, particularly the U.S. In support of customers, Hunter is building on Quanticate's strong reputation for identifying and managing highly qualified candidates for such roles as Clinical Data Managers, Biometricians and Project Managers. In addition, he will be expanding the company's role in identifying and recruiting Medical Communications and healthcare consulting candidates.

"John's appointment reflects Quanticate's commitment to supporting our rapidly growing North American customer base," said Quanticate's President Andrew MacGarvey. "His previous experience and success gives him an exceptional perspective into very specific areas, such as regulatory affairs, product management and medical communications. This depth of knowledge drives his ability to seek the kind of outstanding talent that Quanticate is known for recruiting. He will be invaluable in helping us to expand our Quanticate People footprint into the very strategic North American market."

Prior to joining Quanticate, Hunter was with international recruitment agency, the ID Group recruiting in clinical, regulatory affairs, brand/product management, medical communications and healthcare advertising. He also was instrumental in developing the firm's service offerings in the U.S. markets -- on both the East and West Coasts, while also managing recruitment projects in the U.K. and continental Europe. In addition, Hunter has held roles in medical device regulatory affairs with the British Standards Institution.

According to MacGarvey, Hunter's appointment will be an important factor in Quanticate's commitment to bringing the talents of its Quanticate People unit directly to its North American customers. While Quanticate already services the U.S. and other North American markets, Hunter's appointment to the U.S. headquarters office marks a significant step in bringing services closer to the customer base.
