On Assignment Rebrands Its U.S. Clinical Research Division

CALABASAS, Calif., January 6, 2012 -- On Assignment, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASGN), a leading global provider of diversified professional staffing solutions, announced today that they have rebranded their U.S. clinical research division under the name Valesta Clinical Research Solutions.

This change was made to best promote the company's global presence in clinical research and their range of service offerings - from contract and direct hire placements to functional outsourcing for clinical trials. The new name also leverages the strength of the existing Valesta clinical research brand within Western Europe - a company acquired by On Assignment in February 2011.

 "By unifying the brand we can effectively communicate our enhanced global services that offer new ways to meet the needs of our customers," said Emmett McGrath, president of On Assignment's Life Sciences and Allied Healthcare divisions. "We are excited about the new opportunities this brings for both our clients and employees."

Valesta Clinical Research Solutions operates in the United States, Belgium, Netherlands, and Spain. Learn more at www.valesta.com.
