Jean-Pascal Rugiero

Vice President, SVMPharma

In my role as Vice President I oversee all our sales activities for the DISTILL EDC platform as well as lead our marketing efforts.

I am French, and I have been living in Belgium for the past 25 years. In my career I have worked in a number of roles, all adding to my knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry. I am a chiropractor by training and an IT developer by choice. In my early years I was involved in bank and insurance software development, quickly switching to EDC and eClinical platforms development. I took on roles such as project manager, helpdesk manager, pre-sales technician and finally sales and BD. I am the perfect link between our Teams of developers and our customers.

I have been working for several CROs for the past 16 years. My in-depth knowledge of the eClinical sphere and my extensive network of pharma executives are a real asset in my role at SVMPharma. DISTILL is the most exciting role I have ever been offered. Join us on this exciting journey!

I have a passion for clinical research and have worked in the field since 2014, managing clinical trials, at site and later CRO level. My experience includes commercial, non-commercial,  CTIMP and observational, RWE studies from study set up, through data collection to close out.  I pride myself in building close working relationships and I am a self-confessed planner who appreciates the importance of project plans designed to drive efficiencies.

Sachin Adiseshadrirao

Operations Manager, SVMPharma

In my role as operations manager, I lead the business analysis, testing, scrum-master, and technical writing teams behind the development of DISTILL.

I am passionate about software products that improve the lives of patients. There are two key ingredients to this: empathy for the real problems faced by healthcare professionals, sponsors, and patients, and a motivated team eager to bring the product's vision to life.

In my role at SVMPharma, I have the privilege of leading both of these aspects in the development of DISTILL.

Worked with several sponsors and associations to setup clinical trial systems such as EDCs and eTMF systems.
Evaluated leading EDC systems in the market for the purpose of procurement to drive early and late phase studies.
Diverse experience in business analysis, IT product and project management.
