Azzur Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Cinta Burgos as Vice President of Consulting Services. In addition to providing strategic consulting and expert guidance to Azzur’s nationwide clients,  Cinta takes on a critical role in supporting the continued expansion of Azzur’s consulting services—helping nurture both new markets and new capabilities, including support for clients working to bring COVID vaccines and therapies to market. As a quality assurance expert with more than 25 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical, biologics, medical devices, in-vitro diagnostic (IVD), and combination product industry, Cinta is an accomplished GMP, GLP, and GCP professional, with in-depth knowledge of FDA, EU, and other international regulations with several successful product launches.

Expansion into the Silicon Hills
 
Rife with prestigious research and academic institutes and home to hundreds of early-stage biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, Austin has become home to what experts say could be the third burgeoning biotech hub of the United States. To serve these local needs, Azzur Group today announces its newest consulting services office in Austin, Texas.
 
Leading Azzur Austin is Christopher Albert, Director. Christopher has nearly a decade of experience working for some of the world’s premier pharmaceutical manufacturers. An expert in process engineering, validation, and project management, Christopher has led teams in the United States and India that oversaw the launch of as many as 12 products per year.
