About our founder Paul R Palmer

Paul R Palmer's profile and experience

Paul R Palmer has been in the pharmaceutical industry since 1986, he has accrued over 60,000 hours of experience in the development manufacture and supply of medicinal products and medical devices.

Throughout his career Paul has intentionally taken on all opportunities as they arose in order to develop a broad range of knowledge with an in-depth detailed understanding of manufacturing, storage, distribution, research, computerised systems, as well as the facilities and services to support each.

People and systems have always been a core focus, how to ensure best use optimise and enhance efficiency. Starting with biology has resulted in a level of curiosity rarely displayed in people taking on the qualified person role in pharmaceutical manufacturing. Culture, behaviour and psychology are all significant influences on the systems and processes we implement, but are often ignored.

Paul studied psychology as part of his MSc in 1993 and has always enjoyed observing the world around them with a curiosity that is rarely satisfied.

Working with Paul, you may find challenging as he pushes your systems and processes, further than you thought was possible.


What do others say

Jane Wright

I was extremely impressed by Paul's approach during an MHRA audit a few months ago. As well as being extremely good with the auditors and explaining processes with gravitas, he was excellent with the support team. Audit requests were concise and relayed calmly and Paul's interpersonal skills really helped in getting the best out of the audit team.

I've seen a lot of quality managers with a variety of styles during regulatory audits, some good, some bad but none anywhere near as good as Paul.

Michael Burke

I have worked with Paul for several years in his roles as QP and Quality Director. He has an excellent knowledge and is highly professional. I would definitely recommend Paul and would happily work with him again.

Ashley Keating

During Pauls tenure at Biogen Idec he provided an invaluable insight into UK and EU GMP regulations and pushed through several key initiatives within tight timelines. Pual worked particularly well with our UK regulatory group and provided a key link between this group and our European Quality groups

Debra (Turner) Ainge

Paul joined Clinigen initially as a contract QP with a view to supporting the Quality Team with his extensive knowledge and experience. Six months in the Global Quality Director resigned due to personal reasons and Paul stepped into the role at short notice. This was really important to the company as we were expecting 2 MHRA inspections. With Paul taking the lead in preparations, management and hosting the inspections we achieved excellent results, including the site under close monitoring achieving which received the best result in years.

Paul has a pragmatic approach to any role he takes on, drawing on his extensive knowledge and experience to achieve the best possible result for the company while maintaining compliance.

Jamie Oduro

Paul’s knowledge and experience in the pharmaceutical industry is secondary to none. He is highly recommend for all aspects of pharmaceutical manufacturing, management and had extensive auditing experience. As a busy QP he is always finds the time to support and mentor me where possible.

Gábor Mihályi

I have worked with Paul on multiple occasions and if you turn to him with any business related or other issues, he sure will help you! He has not only a strong GMP, GDP and other GxP background, but also experience and strong knowledge of the wider business processes. I like working with him as I can learn a lot, and doing so in a fun and entertaining environment. He has a good sense of humour and a good personality, balancing being serious, experienced, knowledgeable and fun in the right way.
