Denise Lee

loves to delegate; So, 14 years ago when she was offered the job of Clinical Study Manager at a pharmaceutical company with 100% clinical trials outsourcing model, she jumped at the opportunity.

Today, Denise heads up a Global Clinical Operations department, where she is dedicated to establishing the best model of outsourcing for the delivery of succinct and successful clinical trials, that meets company culture, conditions and cash-flow. Denise’s degree in Occupational Therapy and professional experience in psychiatry, has taught her that the key to success is not knowing all of the answers but rather good foresight, instincts and most importantly listening.
