Ashfield Commercial and Clinical UK announces the appointment of David Proffitt as Head of Quality & Compliance in the UK.

David has held a number of key roles within Ashfield since joining us back in 2014, and is transitioning to this role from his prior position as Training Business Manager.

Talking about how his experience will help shape this role, David said:

“I’ve worked within the Pharmaceutical Industry for around thirteen years, having been drawn to a field which makes a real, tangible difference for patients. Over this period, I have been lucky enough to work for some wonderful organisations.

During my time at Ashfield, I have run countless product training courses and delivered field coaching with the training and development department. Working with this team, my eyes were opened to many different facets of Ashfield’s business – particularly the Quality and Compliance function.

As you can imagine, training is heavily lead by compliance, and it is essential that our people properly understand their responsibilities as far as compliance is concerned.”

Discussing the future of the Ashfield Quality and Compliance Department, David explained:

“Proper regulation will always be essential in an industry such as ours. It is of paramount importance that we ensure the safety of our patients and promote products in a responsible and ethical way – I think this is something to be proud of.

I am very happy to be joining such an enthusiastic, experienced and respected team. I would love to further raise the profile of the department within the organisation and encourage others to be proud and passionate about operating in a fully responsible and ethical manner.”

Colin Watson, Managing Director of Ashfield Commercial and Clinical UK commented:

“David is a great ambassador for Ashfield and is perfectly placed to spearhead our Quality and Compliance Team. The team provides an essential service in ensuring we keep Ashfield, and our services for many clients, compliant with pharmaceutical regulatory legislation.”
