(NASDAQ: MDSO), a leading global provider of cloud-based clinical development solutions, today announced that vice president of implementation services Marco van Doeveren was named by magazine as one of the 100 most inspiring people in the life sciences industry.

The award recognizes Marco as a driving force behind Medidata’s success in addressing the unique challenges of mid-size and emerging companies in reaching the full benefits that advanced technology can bring to streamlining clinical trials.

Mid-market organizations – including pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, academic, nonprofit and government – are looking to reap the same benefits as the large biopharma companies from Medidata’s cloud-based platform of innovative solutions. Implementations at mid-market companies frequently involve individual tailoring to account for fewer resources and accelerated timelines, and many smaller companies question whether they can get an industry-leading solution for a price they can afford.

Under Marco’s leadership, Medidata’s mid-market services team continually works to make optimal use of the Medidata platform by focusing on end-to-end processes. Using his sponsor-focused perspective to adapt Medidata’s implementation process for the mid-market, Marco’s group reliably streamlines trial processes and implements tailored solutions to each individual group without compromising efficiency or quality. As a result, his team has doubled revenue, tripled the number of projects and quadrupled the number of clients in a four-year span.
