"As senior director of clinical data ­management at Synteract Inc., Olivia Montano is having a significant impact on the high-quality standards of both her CRO and the industry as a whole," said Taren Grom, editor, PharmaVOICE. "She has built an incredible data management department at Synteract, and is drawing on her well-rounded background to set new and improved standards. Her dedication to the data field and to helping her colleagues and peers realize their goals are just a few of the reasons Ms. Montano is being recognized as a 2012 PharmaVOICE 100 honoree."

Honorees were identified in the July/August 2012 issue of PharmaVOICE magazine. The PharmaVOICE 100 are selected based on comprehensive submissions from industry professionals describing how nominees inspired or motivated them or affected positive changes as well as other factors, such as community and philanthropic activities.
