Regulatory and Quality Solutions Minnesota Spotlight

Welcome to the third post in our R&Q Q&A series. Every few months we ask R&Q employees from a different region questions about how they make their impact at R&Q... and the impact R&Q has had on them. From improving people's lives to R&Q's corporate culture, we hope their answers shed light on how R&Q influences the medical device industry and why our employees claim time and time again that working at R&Q is a highly rewarding experience.

Minnesota Momentum and Expansion

R&Q's momentum in Minnesota continues. We bring Minnesota clients a portfolio of regulatory and quality experience that is difficult to match.

2016 was a busy year for R&Q in Minnesota, with a lot of activity in conjunction with organizations such as Medical Alley, AdvaMed, MassDevice (DeviceTalks), UBM Canon (MD&M events)and a few others. We also secured a brand new Minnesota office, a beautiful and inviting space to talk with current and prospective clients. Throughout 2016, we really focused on expanding our reach and influence in the Minnesota region. This included building a team of experienced R&Q consultants, including key hires like Juli Denny.

2017 has finally arrived, and we believe we're positioned to become a much larger player in the Minnesota medical device community as a whole. We've made the rounds making connections and listening to the needs and experiences of medical device companies, and continuing that in 2017 is vital. One of the biggest events for us early in the year will be the first of four Women in Health Leadership Series events from Medical Alley. As a certified Women's Business Enterprise, R&Q is excited to support the series all year long.
