Business director for venue finding at Ashfield M&E, Louise Goalen, said: “We are thrilled with the re-appointment. It means our partnership with Bayer can continue to go from strength to strength.
“As with many of our life science and healthcare clients, our experience in providing compliant venue finding services in a changing regulatory environment is a key factor in the successful partnership. We also regularly review our processes to ensure they are optimised to deliver significant savings to Bayer. The team are delighted with the news and excited about continuing to explore ingenious ways to add value to the services we provide.”
