With a pharmaceutical specific career spanning more than 30 years, Brian brings a wealth of knowledge and depth of experience and leadership to CS Analytical Laboratory. Early in his career he held a variety of positions spanning sales, marketing, training, district, regional and national management at Organon Pharmaceuticals (Schering Plough) and Ferring. His entre into the outsourced services sector came in the late 1990’s when he took on the role of VP Pharmaceutical Services for SGS US Testing with direct responsibility for Chemistry, Microbiology and Toxicology lab service offerings spanning the US and Canada. In 2002, he started Whitehouse Analytical Laboratories with the vision of building a company that could provide outsourced testing services in an improved and more efficient manner over the what the industry was used to. In a short 13- year period, he built this company into a 25,000 square foot laboratory facility housing 48 full time employees that offered a host of testing services for FDA regulated companies. He sold Whitehouse Labs in 2015 and over the past five years has served as CEO of Leak Detection Associates, a manufacturer of helium-based leak detections systems and as an advisor and Director of Business Development for Visikol, an early-stage research and development CRO. With many notable achievements to his name, he takes the most pride in being the vision and architect behind the development of the first fully operational, FDA regulated and inspected, cGMP Container Closure Integrity Testing (CCIT) laboratory in the world. The CCIT Center of Excellence he created was the birthplace of many peer reviewed publications and over the last 15 years has led to the formalization of industry accepted standards like USP <1207>. He is a proud graduate of Bucknell University and in his extremely limited free time, he can usually be found spending time with his family on a fishing or sailboat.
