He succeeds Patti Arsenault who takes up a strategic role as Vice President Quality Assurance (QA) at Cytel following her tenure as Executive Director of Data Management and QA.

During his 30 year career, Paul has set up, expanded, and led data management and clinical biometrics teams around the world. He has spearheaded a range of business-critical initiatives including the implementation of risk-based metrics and centralized statistical monitoring tools, and overseen global data management functional service outsourcing partnerships.
