IMPACT Expands Management Team in Medical Writing Services

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC: 09 November 2020 – At IMPACT our core purpose is to develop and inspire pharmaceutical professionals.  We understand the importance of what we do.  By providing high quality medical writing and regulatory services to our pharma and biotech clients, we have the potential to accelerate the development of promising new therapies – new therapies that will have a positive impact on the quality of the lives of countless patients.  And we believe that we can only do what we do well when we attract, nurture, and retain the best and the brightest drug development professionals.  In other words, inspiring and developing pharmaceutical professionals is the focus that propels us to serve our clients, and therefore the patients that our clients serve, with unwavering excellence.

We know that inspiration and development occur because of intentional actions.  To that end, we are pleased to announce that we have expanded the management team in Medical Writing Services, and management cohorts are now organized by career level.  Adding more individuals to the management team allows managers more time to focus on growth & development – their own development and that of their direct reports – while continuing to work on client projects.  Organizing management cohorts by career level means managers can focus on identifying learning opportunities that are tailored to individuals at that specific level.  Finally, by ensuring that all managers continue to work on client projects, IMPACT managers will understand, first hand, the skills and experiences needed to tackle even the most challenging projects with confidence.

Effective October 1, 2020, the following individuals were promoted and joined the Medical Writing Services management team:

  • Kelly D’Arezzo – Manager, Quality Control
  • Caroline Drucker, PhD, RAC – Manager, Medical Writing
  • Abigail McLeod, PhD, RAC – Manager, Medical Writing
  • Rebecca Pogue, PhD – Manager, Medical Writing
  • Kasturi Puranam, PhD – Manager, Medical Writing

Nancy Gasper-Smith, Vice President, Medical Writing Services, comments, “I am very appreciative that Kelly, Caroline, Abby, Rebecca, and Kasturi are willing to serve as IMPACT managers, and I have no doubt that they will fulfill their management responsibilities with the same professionalism and competence that they demonstrate in their work for our clients.”
