Icon boosts Asia Pacific and Latin American leadership

Appoints Wei Ming Goh and Dr Dennis Hurley as regional VPs

Icon has appointed Wei Ming Goh and Dr Dennis Hurley as regional VPs to strengthen its leadership teams in Asia Pacific and Latin American respectively.

Goh joins the Irish firm as vice president, Asia Pacific from fellow contract research organisation (CRO) Kendle, where he served in the same role with responsibility for all operational activities and partner relationships within the region.

Prior to this he was with another CRO, Quintiles, where he held a number of senior management positions in operations and finance for the company's Asian, Australian and African region.

Meanwhile, Dr Dennis Hurley joins Icon from INC Reseach, where, as vice president of Latin America, he was responsible for building the company's business in the region.

Dr Hurley also co-founded ECA, Mexico's largest CRO, in 1992 and expanded it to the five other major countries in Latin America.

Dr Steve Cutler, Icon's group president of clinical research services, said: “Continuing to grow our presence and expand our capabilities in Asia Pacific and Latin America is one of our strategic priorities. I'm very pleased to welcome Wei Ming and Dennis to Icon's Latin American and Asia Pacific leadership teams.

"Their strong regional knowledge and experience along with their demonstrated leadership will be invaluable as we continue to grow and expand our capabilities in these important regions.”
