Hart Clinical Consultants Experiences Rapid Growth, Doubles Staff


Stan Reaves Also Named Chief Operating Officer

ATLANTA (January 13, 2016) – Hart Clinical Consultants (HCC), a specialized and adaptable Clinical Research Organization (CRO) that conducts and manages all aspects of novel medical device and pharma clinical trials, has announced it has more than doubled it’s staff over the past six months.

The expansion has brought with it changes to HCC’s executive team. HCC’s former Director of Business Development Stan Reaves, has been promoted to chief operating officer. As COO, Reaves will lead HCC’s national consortium of highly-trained clinical research professionals in providing study sponsors with comprehensive regulatory and clinical support services, including case proctoring, monitoring and audit functions. He is also responsible for HCC’s project management and training programs.

Stepping up to fill Reaves’s shoes in the business development role is Patric Mercer. Mercer’s primary focus as manager of business development is growth and oversight of sales and marketing operations for HCC and assisting with clinical trial operations. Prior to joining HCC, Mercer was a practice administrator and clinical research manager for SleepMed, Inc., where he was responsible for day-to-day operations of SleepMed’s clinical facilities and all aspects of its clinical trial operations.

“We are extremely grateful to have been able to acquire such industry-leading talent over the past several months,” said HCC CEO Jim Hart. “It makes our national network of clinical trial professionals even stronger.”

Within the past six months, HCC also added 11 senior clinical research associates (CRA’s) to it’s ranks, to include: Kari Anderson, Jill Barnes, Janice Boyd, Beth Davis, Cheryl Fink, Helen Gleason, JoAnn Key, Larry Lobacz, Bryan Petrisko, Susan Wilson and Carol Anne Yarbrough. HCC’s senior CRA’s are the company’s back bone and are responsible for a host of integral duties, including procedure proctoring, site management and monitoring as well as working directly with sponsors/clients – all to ensure compliance with clinical trial protocols and the scientific integrity of all data collected.
