Boston and look forward to hearing about their continued success."
Sagentia responds to its clients' needs in three important ways: helping
companies meet the challenges of product innovation as the core driver
for competitive advantage in both developed and developing markets,
partnering with companies on co-development and open innovation and
helping companies to adapt to global market changes with an increasing
focus on usability, product efficacy, personalization and cost reduction.

Dan Edwards and Mick Withers appointed as co-Managing Directors of the
business. The change takes place as Sagentia continues to build on its
strong science, technology and engineering base with focused market
insight to meet the growing needs of its clients.
