BERWYN, PA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - Due to the recent increase in business in North America, EXTEDO, a key Regulatory Information Management solutions provider for life sciences firms, announced today changes to its organizational structure.

In 2013 EXTEDO experienced tremendous growth in its customer base in North America. New customers added in the course of the year included small, mid-size and multinational firms. As a result, the US team, which is based in Berwyn, PA, is being restructured and strengthened to meet the increased demand for Regulatory Information Management (RIM) software and service solutions in the region.

The most prominent change in EXTEDO's organizational structure is the promotion of Karteek Sandadi to Associate Director Professional Services. Mr. Sandadi joined the company in 2012 as Manager Professional Services and since then has been responsible for developing and promoting EXTEDO's services business in the US. In his new role as Associate Director Professional Services, Mr. Sandadi will ensure that EXTEDO continues to expand its services business in North America and continues to deliver exceptional customer experience. "We would like to thank Karteek Sandadi for his outstanding contribution to growing our services business within EXTEDO and look forward to further expanding our consulting services as a sustainable and reliable partner to our customers", said Martin Schmid, President of EXTEDO.

"I see this as a great chance for EXTEDO to build upon our current strengths and to expand further into the North American market", said Karteek Sandadi. "To be able to reach our ambitious goals not only organizationally but also staff-wise, we are currently hiring additional personnel for our North America professional service, customer service and sales departments".

Due to its strategic importance the North American market has been given top priority and Martin Schmid has taken over the overall management responsibility for EXTEDO's business in the region. "The 2013 business in North America has been extraordinary successful. EXTEDO continues to expand its operations in North America due to the increased demand for its solutions in the region. The change in our organization comes just at the right time and perfectly matches our planned business activities for 2014", said Martin Schmid.
