Yvette Cleland, CEO of Clinical Professionals commented:

“Joining the Cpl Family after our acquisition 4 years ago has allowed us the opportunity to develop and invest significantly in our people, our expansion and our service offering. The opportunity for Affi and I to collaborate more closely and build a formidable UK offering, and for our life sciences business, extend our global footprint has been a career highlight for me and I look forward greatly to our continued journey”.
