ELLICOTT CITY, Md., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS) is pleased to announce that its President and Founder Christine Pierre has been nominated for the SmartCEO Brava! Award. This prestigious award is presented to women business leaders in the Baltimore area who combine entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for giving back to the community. Winners are exemplary leaders in their companies and in the community by encouraging local philanthropy, mentoring fellow CEOs, and sustaining their companies' path of strong growth. Each Brava! winner is selected by an independent panel of judges, and profiled in the July 2013 issue of Baltimore SmartCEO magazine.
"It is a wonderful honor to be nominated for the SmartCEO Brava! Award. Knowing that my colleagues recognize the value of the work we are doing to raise the bar on clinical trials operations and give investigative sites a voice and community is both validating and humbling," Ms. Pierre says.
