Jaime Houghton has been appointed director of the North American Clinical Services team at Packaging Coordinators Inc. (PCI). Ms. Houghton will be based out of PCI’s clinical packaging and distribution site in Rockford, IL, and will oversee the project management and planning activities for the clinical packaging group.
Ms. Houghton has an extensive background in clinical development across several healthcare platforms, most recently with Hollister Inc. Prior to Hollister, she spent more than 20 years in various leadership positions around clinical study and lab development with Baxter Healthcare.
“We could not be more pleased to have someone of Jaime’s background and skills joining our Clinical Services team,” said Bob Misher, senior vice president, PCI Global Clinical Services. “Coupled with the overall growth of our Clinical business and recent investment, adding Jaime really sets the tone for the continued growth and expansion of our business in meeting the needs of our clients both now and in the future. Coming from the pharmaceutical and biotech sector, Jaime really understands the needs of healthcare manufacturers, clinical trial administrators, and of course the patients receiving these lifesaving medications. Her insights will be a great addition to the leadership team.”
In May 2013 PCI acquired AndersonBrecon, significantly expanding its presence in the Clinical Trial services sector.
