Octagon Research Solutions, Inc., a pioneer and leader in the electronic transformation of clinical R&D in the life sciences industry, announced today that its Chairman and CEO, Jim Walker will be the featured guest on ‘The Growth Strategist with Aldonna Ambler’, a nationally known radio program.
The show will be broadcast live on Tuesday, April 11th and 11am (EST), 8am (PAC) on the Voice America Business Channel, (Business.VoiceAmerica.com.) During the program Mr. Walker will be discussing his experiences starting the company, Octagon’s rapid growth both financially and personnel wise, and it’s future in the life sciences industry.
Why is Octagon growing so rapidly? A typical drug application represents years of research and includes thousands of pages of data. Octagon's enterprise submission process management software, ViewPOINT™, digitizes the entire submission process, speeding up the time it takes to complete complex marketing applications. During the past few years, demand has been driven by the growing number of biotechs and pharmaceutical companies racing to bring new drugs to market.
In 2003, Hale and Dorr LLP and KPMG LLP awarded the Hi-Tech Pioneer Award for excellence in innovation to Octagon. Octagon has also been included on the Philadelphia 100Ò list for the past three consecutive years, recognizing it as one of the fastest-growing, privately held firms in the Greater Philadelphia region.
Octagon was also included on Entrepreneur magazine’s “2003 Hot 100 list,” Deloitte & Touche’s “2003 Fast 50 Rising Stars” list, Deloitte & Touche’s “2004 Fast 500” and “2004 Fast 50” lists, and Inc. magazine’s “2005 INC. 500” list recognizing it as one of the fastest-growing, privately held companies in the United States.
