September 12 2016

Global Healthcare fieldwork expert, GLocal Mind has appointed Chara Parmar (née Callaghan), formerly Director of Capabilities and Services at Ipsos MORI, as Senior Account Director. 

“We are excited to have Chara join the growing GLocal Mind team”, said Vrinda Deval, Managing Partner, Glocal Mind. “Chara’s experience will be invaluable to our clients as a local point of contact in Europe as well as for our internal project management and panel teams to help strengthen and streamline the panel and processes.” 

Based in London, Chara will be looking after key accounts in the EU. With 10+ years of experience, Chara’s past roles covered a wide remit, leading several Healthcare Operations teams including Panel Management, Data Processing and Scripting, Quant Project Management, Healthcare Compliance, and Translations Management. Chara applies a unique blend of people centric leadership, project management and technical skills that have proved invaluable throughout her career. 

“This strengthens our presence in an important geography – based in London, Chara will work closely with our clients all over Europe” said Vrinda. 

Chara is also a life coach and when not working can be found running around like a big kid with her toddler and kickboxing when she can sneak out after he's in bed.
