Ergomed’s PrimeVigilance adds specialist pharmacoepidemiology services with key hire

London, UK – 25 May 2018: Ergomed plc, (LSE: ERGO) (‘Ergomed’ or the ‘Company’), a company focused on providing specialised services to the pharmaceutical industry, is pleased to announce the addition of specialist pharmacoepidemiology services to PrimeVigilance’s offering and the appointment of Dr Michael Forstner as Head of Risk Management and Pharmacoepidemiology.

In addition to the appointment of Dr Forstner, the ongoing contracts of Mesama Consulting, a Swiss-based consultancy founded in 2011 by Professor Jan-Willem van der Velden and most recently owned and managed by Dr Forstner, will be assigned to PrimeVigilance.

Dr Forstner is an expert in pharmacovigilance with significant experience in the planning, development, implementation and evaluation of risk management strategies, including post-authorisation studies, supporting the safe use of medicinal products. His skills will broaden Ergomed’s premium service offering within PrimeVigilance, and build new revenue streams in pharmacoepidemiology and risk minimisation services, meeting high demand for these services.

Stephen Stamp, Chief Executive Officer of Ergomed plc, said: “I am delighted to welcome Michael to Ergomed with his significant experience in PV services, in addition to his unique expertise in pharmacoepidemiology and risk management strategies. His appointment will add value to our PrimeVigilance services as well as providing a bridge between CRO and PV, which fits perfectly in our strategy to leverage our expertise in pharmacovigilance and late phase clinical research, and build a new revenue stream in both our PV and specialist CRO services. We remain focused on growing both of our service offerings organically and through strategic acquisitions.”
