Presenting the award, ARCS CEO, Adrian Bootes   stated “ARCS would like to help recognise the efforts of those working in the development of therapeutics by awarding companies and sites, as nominated by their peers. Being chosen as the Favourite CRO wasn’t simply a reflection of CNS’s systems and processes, but was also an acknowledgment of the people, who are the essential glue.”

Chief Operating Officer, Gabrielle McKee commented: “CNS is proud and honoured to have won this award. As a company, CNS has always been committed to maintaining a positive culture focused on how we interact with each other, our clients and importantly the wonderful clinicians, co-ordinators and pharmacists who are at the forefront of delivering our trials to patients.”

“This is a very special award for CNS” added CNS’ Managing Director, Russell Neal. “We have never been a group motivated by the limelight or winning awards, but recognition from those we work with every day is a wonderful validation of the emphasis CNS places in our working relationships, whether that be with our site colleagues, our clients and indeed with each other. It’s the personal touch that continues to underpin CNS’ growth & success.”

CNS would like extend a thank you to all those who voted for CNS and to ARCS for hosting this award.
