Headway in PA: Announcing Dedicated Operations Directors in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia


In 2016 R&Q expanded its activities and the amount of clients served in the northeast (specifically, the greater Boston region), formally launched R&Q in Minnesota, and continued to service new and existing clients throughout the state of Ohio. In 2017 we plan to strengthen our capabilities in those areas and others by hiring some of the most qualified regulatory and quality professionals in the industry (who also are a cultural fit for R&Q). But with that said, we'll never, ever lose sight of where we started and ultimately call home: Pennsylvania.

R&Q has hired - or rather, promoted from within - dedicated operations directors in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Each director is tasked with ensuring R&Q is represented in the territory through:

  • Serving medical device clients and helping them thrive
  • Engaging in regional marketing/networking initiatives
  • Ensuring the growth of ongoing sales
