This has led to the addition of several key roles. Both Tibbetts and Castro have an outstanding work history and are going to be fundamental in ensuring that Pro-ficiency continues to flourish.

 "We are excited to welcome Amy and Catherine to the Pro-ficiency team," said Micheal Raymer, Chief Executive Officer. "these two power-house executives are exactly the leaders we need to drive Pro-ficiency forward as the predominant provider in this space."

"Pro-ficiency is one of the few organizations that I've seen that is changing the game when it comes to quality, efficiency and intelligence of clinical research and I had to be a part of it. I'm excited to be a part of the evolution of clinical trials," said Tibbetts.

As Chief Solutions Officer (CSO), de Castro is set to drive the strategy, systems and new service offerings to keep Pro-ficiency operating ahead of the curve.

Catherine De Castro brings 15 years of executive experience, most recently from Covance and IQVIA, to Pro-ficiency. Her experience in drug development, medical informatics, and AI will be instrumental in finding and implementing solutions.
