European Award for RSSL Executive

Robert Jones of RSSL was presented with the "Outsourcing Executive of the year" awarded at the European Outsourcing Awards ceremony held in Frankfurt at the end of October.

The event celebrates best performance in the pharmaceutical industry and Robert was elected by a panel of leading industry figures for his project management work on behalf of one of RSSL's key clients.

RSSL is a multi-disciplinary laboratory that provides analytical services to the pharmaceutical, bio-pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, and also to food and drink companies. The company also provides training in key areas such as Qualified Person training, Good Distribution Practice and GMP.

Robert received his award for project managing the analytical requirements of a pharmaceutical manufacturer based in mainland Europe, that required RSSL to support its efforts in manufacturing new products at their site. The award organisers noted that, "Strong competition came from many companies and the judges faced a difficult task. But, when managing your internal providers is as difficult as managing your clients, and you still achieve results, you know you’re doing a good job. Robert has shown an outstanding level of commitment and dedication in the management and development of a mutually beneficial relationship, going above and beyond the expectations of both sponsor and supplier to maximise project success."

A key success of Robert’s role has been to ensure that his customer has been able to meet deadlines for successful submissions and launch dates on a number of products. This has cost savings for the manufacturer for the manufacturer but more crucially, is good news for the patients that rely on the drugs they produce.

After the ceremony Robert noted, "Although this is an individual award, it reflects the passion and commitment shown by all my colleagues at RSSL to deliver the highest standards of scientific expertise and customer service. In my role I have to manage and coordinate a diverse team of scientists delivering a wide range of techniques, and the dedication of every member of the team is vital in ensuring that the different elements of the bigger project are all completed on time and in budget. Our expertise, and investment in equipment and resources enables us to deliver a diverse portfolio of industry respected services to our customers which have helped make this award possible.”
