Bidvest Noonan has recruited Tessa Rossi, a microbiologist with extensive research and laboratory experience, to enhance its support to its growing portfolio of life sciences clients.
Rossi was previously lead research scientist at Ophthalmica, a South African ophthalmic medical devices company, and before that was quality control microbiology analyst at a top multinational pharma company.
In this newly created role, Rossi will contribute to the design of contamination control programs, procedures, and policies for biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and medical device manufacturing sites.
Bidvest Noonan works with life sciences companies to prevent biological, chemical or physical contamination during their manufacturing processes. The company has continuously invested in its GMP and GLP cleaning expertise to support these efforts. Rossi’s appointment bolsters the business’s expertise as it prepares to mobilise several new contracts in the sector.
Managing director Cormac Sheils said: "I'm delighted to welcome Tessa to our team. We are proud to support companies that produce many of the world's most important and ground-breaking medicines and biotechnologies. The work they do has never been more important. I know that Tessa will enable us to provide even greater support to them."
Rossi said, "I'm excited to be part of the Bidvest Noonan team. I'm looking forward to working closely with my new colleagues to drive improvements for our portfolio of world-class life sciences companies.”
