For the 2017 CMO Leadership Awards, Life Science Leader teamed up with Industry Standard Research (ISR) to determine the award recipients. This year, ISR evaluated more than 80 contract manufactures based on 26 performance metrics in its annual Contract Quality Benchmarking survey. According to Life Science Leader, survey participants were recruited from Pharma and Biopharma companies of all sizes and were screened for decision-making influence related to working with contract manufacturing suppliers.

“Respondents only evaluate companies with which they have worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months. This level of qualification ensures that survey responses are based on actual involvement with contract manufacturers and clear experiential data,” said Louis Garguilo, Executive Editor of Life Science Leader.

“Sweeping across all categories based on the input of people who have worked with PCI Synthesis is especially gratifying,” said Ed Price, president and CEO of PCI Synthesis. “Winning for overall Expertise validates our business model to invest in our great personnel and the resources that enable them to learn, grown and succeed on behalf of our clients and themselves.”
