Where he’s been key a driver in developing and implementing corporate strategic direction across clinical development and eClinical technologies as well as gathering significant experience in the FSP marketplace. He is presently an Executive Director at PPD accountable for the strategies and provision of client-specific customised solutions supporting clinical development. The first 10 years of Robert’s career were at Roche, Scherer DDS and Pfizer doing various roles with increasing responsibilities within the Data Management and Statistical Programming functions.

Robert first started supporting the ACDM back-in 1993 on the Technical and Conference sub-committee, which included helping organise the ACDM’s first ever conference and he also joined the ACDM board in 2000. After 11 years of supporting the ACDM in 2004 he decided it was time to “retire” from the ACDM to spend a little more time with his young twins.
Sverre Bengtsson, Viedoc
Sverre started more than 30 years ago as a statistical programmer. He worked at a CRO, then took the role as a managing director, first in Sweden and then in the USA. Close to 19 years ago Sverre co-founded a CRO, which developed the Viedoc eClinical System. As the company expanded it was separated the different parts into a CRO and Viedoc Technologies, the CRO was later sold and is now focusing on the global expansion of Viedoc.
Before Viedoc Sverre worked for the global first company in ePRO in early 90’s, the first version weighed 2 kg and had four buttons, the second version only weighed 1 kg! Praised by the users for its user friendliness and it was so easy to carry along. Later he started working at a CRO with paper CRFs and managed quite a few large studies, was lucky to work pretty early with eCRFs, in the mid 90’s – interesting how far we’ve come!
Sverre has also focused mainly on the business development side of things but has always promoted data management and worked towards data managers. He is a teacher at the university in Uppsala in the Master Course in pharmaceutical development, specifically in Data Management and in non-interventional studies. The past year and next year he will be teaching at the university of Montpellier in specific courses in data management.
