Management Team
Mike Connor

Mr. Connor’s experience spans several market sectors from commercial construction to laboratories and research facilities to pharmaceutical manufacturing and machine development.  He led a design and construct team that constructed 10,000 SF of cGMP space containing Category II controlled substances to produce Phase II and Phase III clinical supplies in just 107 days.  The story of this project was published in the January 1999 issue of ISPEAK - the newsletter of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE).  This was the first published advocacy of using enhanced commissioning to accomplish validation efforts - leading directly to time and money savings.  Also published by Mr. Connor in the Journal of Validation Technology (February 1997) is a method for alignment of project information using a common database - now one of the major tenants of Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP) 5 published by ISPE in 2008.  Named “Engineer of the Year – 1996” by the Atlanta Chapter of the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers.  For full CV click here.
