New hires, technologies, and office for TSG North America

TSG Consulting’s North American business is benefiting from strategic investment in new technologies, new DC office space, and staff hires across its federal and state services divisions.

Strengthening the team

The new starters include three senior appointments for the federal services division. Milady Brutofsky joins as Principal Scientific Consultant specializing in Microbiology, Jonathan Walsh comes on board as Principal Regulatory Consultant, Antimicrobials, and Wendy McCombie is Principal Regulatory Consultant, Conventionals and Biopesticides. Also joining the federal services team are Regulatory Consultants Perri Moeller and Manuela Petrisor.

Our state services division is pleased to announce Patti Golick as Regulatory Consultant and Luke Cartwright as Team Leader, State Renewals. We’ve also appointed four additional Regulatory Specialists: James Bozeman, Darlene Huynh, Janessa Darke and Katrina Lalic. Together, these appointments enrich our team with wide-ranging experience and expertise encompassing antimicrobials, pesticides and more.

Modernization and improvement

The upgrade to a brand-new office suite in Washington DC has created space for the future expansion of TSG’s US federal team. We’ve also invested in modern technologies across North America, enabling us to boost efficiency and add further value to the services we offer clients.

We commissioned a state-of-the-art, custom-built database for tracking state renewal deadlines and requirements. This powerful tool allows our state office to closely monitor and respond to product status in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, ensuring timely submission of documents and data.

Alongside this, our back-office function has benefited from the rollout of a project, resource, and financial management software solution. Streamlining internal activity in this way means we can dedicate more time and energy to client-focused work.
