Peter Brummitt trained and practised as a hospital pharmacist before moving into the pharmaceutical industry with Merrell Dow Research Institute in 1986. He joined the Contract Research Organization (CRO) sector with Besselaar (later Covance) shortly after they set up European operations, and later moved to Innovex to establish their contract research business in 1991. Peter held a number of operational posts at Innovex including Director of Clinical Research (UK) before taking on the role of Business Development Director for International Clinical Research. The merger of Innovex with Quintiles brought Peter into the role of Continental Account Director within the CRO division of Quintiles.
In mid-1997 Peter chose to join ClinPharm, a private UK company, as the board member responsible for extending the businesses outside of the UK. In early 1999, ClinPharm was acquired by UnitedHealth Group as one of the constituent parts of Ingenix Pharmaceutical Services. Peter was appointed Chief Operating Officer for the International (ex-US) CRO division, which operated across 41 countries worldwide. Further to continuing the growth of this business, Peter accepted a corporate role as Executive Vice President responsible for Business Risk Management across the whole of Ingenix Pharmaceutical Services, now InVentiv Health clinical. Within this remit Peter also fulfilled the role of Vice President, Global Quality Assurance until appointing his replacement.
Throughout his 30 year pharmaceutical career, Peter has maintained a keen interest in the application of quality management systems to business, with particular emphasis on the clinical aspects of drug development. As an active advocate of process improvement initiatives and quality management systems such as Six Sigma and ISO within several companies, Peter has been successful in developing and implementing quality performance measures both at operational and executive levels to drive enhanced business performance.
