ProTrials Named a Top Silicon Valley Women-Owned Business

ProTrials Earns Accolade for Consecutive Year Revenue Growth

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - ProTrials Research™, Inc. (www.protrials.com), a leader in the clinical research organization (CRO) industry, has been recognized as one of the area's top 25 women-owned businesses by the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal. Its 14th ranking is particularly significant in a time marked by recession issues, since businesses on the list either generated solid revenue or held steady in revenue growth. Additionally, a recent report by American Express noted that California has more women-owned businesses than any other state in the union -- and ProTrials is the only women-owned and operated CRO in the state.

The Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal list of the top 25 women-owned businesses ranks area public and private women-owned companies according to revenue. Founded by Jodi Andrews and Inger Arum, ProTrials has repeatedly been selected for the list and continues to be one of only a few women-owned and operated CROs worldwide.

"It's particularly gratifying to receive this recognition at the end of our 15th anniversary year," Andrews said. "We've achieved several milestones in 2011, including the expansion and relocation of our headquarters to Sunnyvale, an increase in business in Europe and the addition of a dozen new clients. We are grateful to our sponsors and attribute our success on their behalf to a continued focus on service, quality and experience."
