JERSEY CITY, NJ, July 29, 2019 – TrialScope, the global leader in clinical trial transparency and compliance solutions, announces the appointment of Ruben Echandy as Chief Technology Officer.
“In the clinical and health market, there’s informational chaos. There’s
an opportunity for TrialScope to bring visibility, trust and distill further intelligence from that data,” said Echandy. “I also believe a patient deserves a higher level of hyper-personalization from life science technologies, more control over his/her pathology. TrialScope has a strong opportunity to champion this.”
“Life science technology is fast paced and constantly evolving,” said TrialScope CEO Jeff Kozloff. “Ruben’s technical leadership, coupled with his business acumen, make him the ideal fit for TrialScope and our technology team.” Kozloff added that Echandy has a proven track record of attracting and inspiring top talent in all aspects of software delivery life cycles.
In his role as CTO at TrialScope, Echandy sees himself as an evangelist for vision and innovation, using strategic thinking to anticipate emerging market trends.

To that end, Echandy said his goal is to promote a close proximity between customers and engineering, propelling business forward, accelerating TrialScope’s market footprint and adoption of innovation. The key to fostering long-lasting relationships with clients, he said, is “to carefully listen to our customers, and to always be truthful.”
Echandy says he is looking forward to working on new technologies and working with his IT team. “The level of professionalism and utmost dedication to advance the company’s mission was palpable in every conversation I’ve had with Jeff Kozloff and with every member of his executive team."
Kozloff echoes staffers’ excitement at this new addition to the TrialScope team. “At TrialScope, we continuously reinvest in our software platform,” said Kozloff. “To do so effectively, we must also invest in the expertise behind these market-leading compliance and patient engagement solutions. This is why I am extremely pleased to have Ruben lead our tech group. I am confident that, in his hands, we will make even greater strides with our technology, enabling our clients to expand upon their commitments to clinical trial disclosure, data sharing and transparency.”
Over the last 14 years, Echandy has managed both small and large teams at well-respected engineering organizations. Having led global teams through a variety of challenges, Echandy said he is ready to accelerate on every sharp corner that comes his way.
