“Our result this year is an unprecedented achievement for Vetter and represents a landmark victory for the company,” said Vetter Managing Director Peter Soelkner. “To win in all six categories is exceptional in its own right. However, to be awarded Champion in the areas of Compatibility, Quality and Expertise is particularly rewarding and reflects the day-to-day dedication and hard work of our 5,700 employees on three continents.” C arsten Press, Vetter’s Senior Vice President Key Account Management/Supply Chain Management/Marketing added, “Without doubt, this achievement firmly demonstrates that we continuously strive to meet or even exceed our global customers’ expectations. The awards mirror our partnership approach to be a trusted source for producing life-critical medications for patients in need.”

The CMO Leadership Awards program is unique among other industry awards since winners are chosen according to customer evaluations of the service providers they have actually worked with in the past 18 months. Thus, results cannot be influenced in any manner and are truly representative of actual customer performance.

“For nearly a decade, these awards have proven most meaningful for biopharma organizations striving to obtain optimal outcomes from their outsourcing activities. Our research arm, Industry Standard Research (ISR), which only surveys drug sponsors who have worked recently with specific CDMOs, ensures the validity of these results. Our winners will be your champions of outsourcing,” said Louis Garguilo, Chief Editor and Conference Chair, Outsourced Pharma.

About the CMO Leadership Awards

The CMO Leadership Awards is an annual event now in its eleventh year. In determining the award recipients, Life Science Leader teams up with (ISR) which conducted the research. For the 2022 award, more than 86 contract manufacturers were assessed by 23 performance metrics in ISR’s annual Contract Manufacturing Quality Benchmarking survey. Participants were recruited from pharma and biotech companies of all sizes and screened for decision-making influence related to working with contract manufacturing partners. Respondents only evaluate those companies with which they have worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months. Through this level of qualification, survey responses are based on actual involvement with contract manufacturers and clear experiential data.
