“I am delighted to welcome Stat‐Tech services into the family,” Paolo Morelli, CROS NT’s president and CEO said. “The experience and quality of the Stat‐Tech team will add strong value to CROS NT, adding the important area of medical devices to our portfolio and allowing us to improve our services to our existing US customers by being closer to them. I was impressed by the reputation of their management and their strong leadership, which we can combine with the existing groups in Europe to field a great team globally.”
