Dr Shah, a Siro veteran, is currently the Chief Operating Officer (COO)
Siro Clinpharm has named Dr Vatsal Shah as the head of its US operations. Siro, one of India’s leading contract clinical research organisations (CROs), has its US headquarters in New Jersey, where Dr Shah will be based, and has been focusing on that market as part of its aggressive expansion.
The appointment follows the recent refresh of Siro Clinpharm’s core brand elements to reflect its growth and to sync with the next phase of its evolution – establishing a strong operational presence in the US.
Dr Shah is currently the COO of Siro Clinpharm and will transition to the Global Chief Operating Officer’s role to lead this expansion. Dr Shah is a physician and has more than 20 years of varied experience encompassing all phases of clinical research and all document types for medical writing – from academia as well as all industry perspectives (pharma, CRO, business process outsourcing). He has served Siro for more than 12 years since 2001 and has been with the company for more than eight years during his current stint.
Dr Gautam Daftary, Chairman of Siro Clinpharm, said: “We are looking forward to having Dr Shah in the US office. His expertise in the local and global clinical research sector will help us expand in the geography and enhance relationships with current clients as well as build and expand into newer accounts.”
Dr Shah added: “Siro is uniquely poised to grow quickly based on the high trust and respect it enjoys amongst global clients. The US market is strategically important for us. We will continue to invest there and expand quickly.”
