PHILADELPHIA, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mark Hassenplug, President of global life sciences compliance consulting firm, Maetrics, recently announced the appointment of Edward A. Tomlinson as Managing Director of the company's Mid-Atlantic region. Tomlinson brings to Maetrics over three decades of experience at the highest levels, with such firms as Ernst & Young, Hewlett Packard, and KPMG, where he is acclaimed for his planning, operations, management and compliance insight and innovative solutions for some of the largest life sciences companies in the world. He will participate in the Maetrics leadership as a manager of some of Maetrics' largest medical device and pharmaceutical clients, overseeing global project deliveries, providing intellectual and conceptual guidance, and spearheading preventative problem definition and solutions.
Said Tomlinson, "I am energized by this opportunity. Although I have worked at the highest levels of global compliance consulting, the industry is changing dramatically, which requires new thinking and inventive solutions. Maetrics' deep resources, comprehensive experience, and creative insight has positioned this company for industry leadership, for which I am enthused to be a part of the team."
