“I originally met Jerry at the QuEST Forum meetings several years ago, and quickly came to admire his industry expertise, pragmatic insights and approach. Despite working for competing CB’s we had a mutual respect for one another and would often collaborate on various committees. When the opportunity to bring Jerry on-board with NQA arose we didn’t hesitate to improve our organization with his skillset. He’s been a great fit for the organization and we look forward to many years of success together in bringing value to NQA clients and staff.” said Tim Woodcome, Conformity Assessment Director.
