Beverley J Brummitt BSc (Hons) PhD MRQA
Following the completion of her PhD and post-doctoral research, Beverley joined Innovex in 1989 as a field based Clinical Research Associate (CRA) working in the anti-infectives team of Glaxo Laboratories. Beverley’s career with Innovex progressed through promotions to Clinical Research Trainer, CRA Manager and then Business Manager for the market-leading Contract Hire operation.
In 1996 Beverley chose to move into the area of Clinical Quality Assurance with Innovex and later Quintiles where she worked as an auditor based at the U.K. offices auditing studies conducted throughout Europe. Rapid promotion to senior auditor brought responsibility for a variety of pan-European projects.
In 1997 ClinPharm, a private UK company, approached Beverley to establish and manage their European QA group. Appointed initially as Quality Assurance Manager, the Board promoted her to Director of Quality Assurance in June 1998. Acquisition by UnitedHealth Group brought mergers with Kern McNeill and Worldwide Clinical trials in 1999, to form Ingenix Pharmaceutical Services. Within the combined organization, Beverley was appointed Senior Director Quality Assurance, with responsibility for all quality assurance activities outside North America. In April 2000, she was promoted to Vice President, Global Quality Assurance with responsibility for the development and leadership of the quality assurance function and QA policy worldwide.
In August 2001, Beverley was asked to lead the strategic development of clinical operations for the International division (all clinical operations activities outside North America) of Ingenix, now InVentiv Health clinical. The main priorities for this role initially were to lead the department through globalisation, including a complete restructuring and review of office locations to lay the foundations for extensive expansion via organic and M&A activity over the next 3-5 years.
