What happens when your VP of RA/QA leaves on short notice?
Oriel STAT A MATRIX to the rescue!

A contract manufacturer of medical devices urgently needed to fill a critical gap left by the resignation of its VP of RA/QA. Complicating the situation: The manufacturer was addressing an FDA Form 483 that required weekly progress reports on the mitigation plan. With the help of Oriel STAT A MATRIX, the company was able to access the senior-level RA/QA expertise it needed to maintain compliance while the search for a permanent candidate was conducted.

Customer Challenge

The unexpected resignation of the company’s VP of RA/QA left this critical role open while there was an outstanding FDA Form 483 – and no internal candidate available to fill the role

The role of VP of RA/QA is not a position that can remain vacant – but it takes time to recruit and hire the right candidate. The company turned to Oriel STAT A MATRIX to fill the gap during its search for a full-time candidate.
