“Together, Trudie, Alicia and Dennis are a formidable team,” said Loui Silvestri, PhD, President/CEO of AccuReg. “Their combined skills and experience are immense. They have worked with us for decades and have gained the trust of our clients and staff. They know our clients well and understand their needs, and have firsthand knowledge of our personnel’s strengths and abilities. As Directors, they will lead our company to exceptional new levels of client support, due to their extensive understanding of the global regulatory market.”
“Many companies are striving to meet the regulatory deadlines established for 2021 and 2022 as a result of the EU Medical Device Regulations,” said Dr. Silvestri. “AccuReg is already working with many clients on these challenges. Projects include updating technical documentation and Quality Management Systems to assist clients in successfully meeting their EU MDR/IVDR compliance objectives . With the promotion of Trudie, Alicia and Dennis to leadership positions, AccuReg is further expanding its resources in these and many other service areas, for the benefit of our clients world-wide.”
AccuReg takes great pride in detailed, hands-on customer service, based on a thorough understanding of each client’s products, culture, and particular circumstances. “We know that nothing can be accomplished on a long-term basis without building a genuine relationship with our client. When a client need is identified, it’s never sufficient to simply ‘send in a warm body,’” said Dr. Silvestri. “We are adamant about meeting each project’s requirements with the right resources for the job because we are going to stand by that work, each and every time. And we have decades of experience working efficiently and successfully from remote locations, striving to save clients on expenses whenever we can. This has always been our approach, and under the challenges we are all facing due to COVID-19 precautions, the ability to work effectively off-site is more valuable than ever.”
