Roger Joby was the proud and popular winner of the 2019 PCMG Lifetime Achievement in Outsourcing. A long term PCMG supporter and one of the oldest outsourcers in the business, Roger was given the award at the PCMG Annual Conference, 2019 at Sitges near Barcelona. Roger has worked for pharma and CRO companies in a long and distinguished career. He is an innovative thinker who questions the status quo in an endeavour to improve systems, processes, people and outcomes in the outsourcing interface, which many of us find so challenging. He was a very popular winner indeed, as evinced by the standing ovation and a generous character reference from PCMG ex-Chairman, Andrew Parrett. An emotional Roger said that he was delighted to receive the award and that he had loved every minute of his career in outsourcing.
