Host Company Testimonials

"Pam is a detailed-oriented manager whose company provides superlative work from concept to final output. She was very responsive in meeting our special requests and has coordinated valuable onsite vendor shows for Sequenom employees with many new product displays. I highly recommend her and will definitely have BVS sponsor additional events in the future for Sequenom.”

Lana Thurman
Director, Facilities and Purchasing

“I first worked with BVS as a Senior Category Manager at Amgen. Pam and her team helped refine and compliment both an implementation and communication plan to support a major sourcing project. They coordinated all aspects of multiple, site-wide vendor and technology seminars. Secondly, I engaged BVS to support a project I was managing as a consultant with a mid-cap pharmaceutical company. As with my first engagement, the quality and service was exceptional. BVS supported my client on the development and execution of multiple vendor shows designed to communicate sourcing decisions so that researchers were well informed about the strategic direction of which suppliers were identified as ‘preferred’ and which were not. I plan on working with Pam and BVS in the future.”

David Karakas
Supply Chain Leader

“Pamela is a transformational leader. She and her team have changed the notion of how biotech companies and their providers collaborate to advance science. Both come together at in-house vendor fairs and have an opportunity for discussion and exploration on topics of innovation. Together, the experts, the researchers, the vendors, collaborate.”
