[March 10, 2020 - Hatboro, PA] To meet the regional needs for superior professional services in the regulatory and compliance space, Azzur Group today announces the establishment of a new office, as well as the appointment of two new leaders within the organization.
A nationwide network of experts delivering professional services across the life sciences industry, Azzur Group is dedicated to providing clients with innovative quality and compliance solutions From Discovery to Delivery™.
Bringing Consulting Excellence to Worcester
Boston and its surrounding cities are one of the top life science hubs in the world, having a strong reputation for scientific research, innovation, and biopharmaceutical advancements.
To meet the ever-present needs of the dynamic local industry, Azzur Group is proud to announce the establishment of its newest office in Worcester, Massachusetts. This office will be a projects-based office and will provide process, MEP, and project management expertise.
Leading our newest practice is Aaron Bober, Director. Aaron brings with him 15 years of experience, primarily in biologics, medical devices, and renewable fuels, where his comprehensive experience has included process design, capital project management, and regional operations management. Aaron is actively involved in the ISPE Boston Chapter, as well as a committee member for ISPE Women in Pharma.
“I’m excited to be a part of Azzur Group and to establish and grow key client relationships within the Worcester area. In collaboration with the other Azzur offices, I believe we can work together to deliver comprehensive solutions to clients, allowing them to deliver their innovations to the market more effectively and efficiently,” said Aaron.
Strengthening Azzur’s Foothold in RTP
The health and life science industry of the greater Raleigh area is a thriving community of biopharmaceutical and medical technology companies and universities, rich with research opportunities.
In her new role, Robin will continue to grow Azzur’s business in the RTP area with the goal of Azzur Group becoming a household name in the local industry. Armed with a team of tenured engineers and consultants with decades of experience, she intends to deliver highly valuable results for our most pertinent manufacturing challenges.
Passionate about quality, Robin has focused her career on comprehensive projects, learning how to proactively ascertain and mitigate risk, as well as having developed the agility to forge ahead when projects change course.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of Azzur Group, and I am confident that I can continue to lead my team on the upward trajectory set forth by our previous leadership,” said Robin. “Clients, their patients, and customers are at the center of everything we do. I believe that quality is everyone’s responsibility, and it’s my honor to lead this talented team, foster new client relationships rooted in quality and trust, and to make a difference in the lives of patients.”
With the appointment of Robin to Director of Azzur Raleigh, Shelley Preslar, who has led the Raleigh office since 2014, transitions to a new role as President of Azzur Training Center (ATC) in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Launching later this year, ATC will offer customized training programs for our clients. Initial courses will include full-scale GxP training, gowning training, and gowning certification/qualification—in partnership with Azzur Labs Raleigh. These courses will utilize both classroom-style learning and real-world kinesthetic training. Our trainers will even be able to deliver client-specific methodologies.
Both Robin and Shelley will be complemented by the full-scale microbiology laboratory services offered by Azzur Labs Raleigh, which opened its doors in late 2018.
"At Azzur Group, it's our mission to provide healthcare life science leaders with a portfolio of professional services that allow them to accelerate their product lifecycle from Discovery to Delivery. We are proud to welcome Aaron and Robin to Azzur Group, and we are certain that their experience and zest for quality will allow us to further meet the broadening needs of our clients,” said Chris Mansur, Azzur’s Chief Operating Officer.
