His role is to oversee and enable the success of Catalyst Flex, which he does through support of all Catalyst Flex department heads. His goal is to ensure excellence in their functions and provide executive support where appropriate. 

Craig believes the enthusiasm and desire to partner effectively comes from the people we hire at Catalyst. First and foremost, when we identify talent, we ask do they fit into the company culture and exhibit our core values? This is key as our people matter and differentiate us. Our staff has technical competencies, which are essential, and Catalyst is always helping to further develop. In addition, our staff has talent, which Catalyst Flex continues to nurture. 

Approaching people that are aligned on Catalyst’s culture, Craig is driven by the people he works with. “I love the challenges that we work on together. I have colleagues I trust and value to come up with viable solutions,” Craig says. 

Craig works in the clinical research industry because he knows how important it is to patients. “I’ve benefitted from new medicines that have personally impacted my quality of life and I want to help others have the same benefits,” he explains.  

One hope that Craig has is that clients understand the unique approach that Catalyst Flex can bring versus other providers. In addition to the incredible talent and expertise we offer, we boast differentiators around our strong culture, our desire to listen, and our ability to offer unique solutions for our clients, including the support of a database of more than 7,000 experts. 

“Catalyst has invested heavily in this business with our recent acquisitions, recruitment of talent, leadership, and strategic focus,” Craig says. “We continue to expand on our strengths. I am extremely excited about where we are going.”
