Thorough in his work detail

"Fenton worked with me in several different projects. In one project, he was in a cross-functional team with me on a large GMP remediation project to rescue a DIN product contract manufacturer from imminent forced closure by Health Canada. Playing a key role as the acting Production Manager, Fenton implemented several remediation measures including but not limited to: helping develop a strategic process validation approach, equipment and facility remediation, overseeing and witnessing destruction of recalled product, overseeing redesign of SOP program, and delivering GMP training. 

In another project, Fenton worked with me to conduct a GMP due diligence inspection of aseptic processing activities for a parenteral product preparation, located in a foreign country. He was very thorough in his work detail, he wrote the final report with all of our findings and recommendations. The report was well received by both the client and the foreign Government ministry. I find Fenton to be a pleasure to work with. He is humorous, intelligent, productive and I would highly recommend him for any role associated with technology transfer, manufacturing operations management or validation."
