Worldwide Clinical Trials Appoints CFO Amid Record Growth
Experienced financial executive Brian Tuttle will build on growth trajectory
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Worldwide Clinical Trials, Inc. (Worldwide), the industry’s leading global, midsized, full-service CRO, announced today that Brian Tuttle, CPA, MBA, will join as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Tuttle will guide the company’s finance, accounting and strategic sourcing functions as the company scales to deliver against record growth.
Robust funding for small to midsized pharmaceutical organizations and biotechs – up 96% from a year agoi – is one of the contributing factors toward Worldwide’s growth. This primary market for Worldwide values the company’s “midsized approach” – the combination of a global infrastructure, scientific and methodological expertise, and a personalized customer service experience.
Tuttle joins Worldwide as an experienced global financial executive, with 30 years of driving business growth and building corporate value for companies like American Materials Company, where he served as CFO, and PPD, Inc., where he held senior leadership positions in global finance and accounting.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Brian as a key member of the team architecting Worldwide’s continued growth strategy,” said Peter Benton, president and chief operating officer for Worldwide. “Small and midsized biotechs are doing important work. They deserve the best CRO experience. Brian’s skill in helping companies thrive during hypergrowth will be invaluable as we rapidly scale, focus investments and ensure we deliver the best customer experience.”
"Having spent more than three decades with companies experiencing transformational growth, all roads have led me to working with Worldwide to deliver on the company’s mission to be the world’s best midsized CRO,” said Tuttle. “Worldwide is primed for continued record growth as the booming small and midsized pharma and biotech market turns to us for our specific blend of scientific, medical and operational expertise and customer service."
Tuttle holds an MBA, master’s in tax accounting and BS in business administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
