Client Testimonial - Leadership Role - 2019

"Indira Walker worked in an interim role providing quality and site leadership expertise from January 2019 until site closure in July 2019. The closure was the outcome of a strategic review which concluded that activities should be transferred to an alternative site within the network. The ultimate requirement of the role was to ensure a safe and compliant closure in line with project timelines whilst continuing to maintain the supply of critical medicines.  A critical success factor was also a positive MHRA GMDP Inspection, focussing on the decommissioning and transfer activities.

The role required Indira to quickly establish a positive working relationship with the Site Quality Head and the Senior Leadership Team during a challenging situation.  She managed to do this in a collaborative way and to build a very cohesive and effective team.

The site received a successful MHRA inspection with only 1 “other” deficiency and 3 comments – the subsequent responses were accepted by the inspector.

All activities were successfully transferred and the site closure was achieved on time with the desired outcomes. Indira played a key role in leading these activities and consistently demonstrated strong leadership and technical skills throughout.

In addition to the interim site based role, Indira’s expertise was also recognised by the wider business and during her tenure she was asked to support a number of complex quality and regulatory challenges covering GMP, GDP and GVP.  Indira provided invaluable insight and made a significant contribution to delivering successful outcomes."
