MMS Promotes Two Leaders at its Asia Headquarters amid Strong Growth Period

Is among the lowest attrition rates in the pharmaceutical industry regionally

Bangalore, India (June 7, 2018) – MMS Holdings Inc. (MMS) – a global, leading clinical research organization – announced today two major promotions at its Asia headquarters, including Dr. Arunima Sen has been promoted to the position of Head, Drug Safety and Medical Writing in India, and Nandini Vijaisimha has been promoted to the position of Head, HR and Administration in India.

The promotions allow for these leaders who have been with the organization for a decade to lead alongside global counterparts and exemplify the “One MMS” philosophy. Further, in a highly competitive industry, it sets MMS apart with unique talent and low attrition rates that far out-pace the industry average. It is estimated that attrition rates in the Indian pharmaceutical sector are suffering at 30-35 percent annually, according to Business Standard. MMS is currently below six percent annually in the region and has always remained at or below this mark.

“The dedication of our experts internally, notably Ms. Vijaisimha and Dr. Sen, is unwavering,” said Michelle Gayari, Executive Director, Global Operations, MMS, based at the company’s Canton, Mich. headquarters. “For nearly a decade, both our staff and our customers have come to rely on these leaders. In India, our integral team is not just an extra pair of hands as in some companies; they are collaborative scientists and researchers that have assisted in building strong teams and cultivated these strengths with a quality-focused, and a client-centric, mindset.”

Growth in Asia has kept pace with the company’s U.S. headquarters at double digit movement annually since inception.

“I have been focused on building a team with solid technical and scientific skillsets, but beyond that, those who will operate globally, while bringing creative solutions and efficiencies to daily work. I am proud to have these efforts recognized by the organization,” said Dr. Sen.
“Every day, I focus on helping motivate, mentor, and train colleagues to be their best, showing them that MMS is truly one of the best companies to work for. I am honored and humbled by this recognition,” said Vijaisimha.
