I’ve been working with Jennifer Meldrum and Rich Adamson of PEAK Pharma with various clients since 2007. As an employee, it has been the best experience of my career. You will have their personal cell phones, and will quickly feel that you work with Peak Pharma, instead of for them. Both keep current, active, and adaptable to this ever-changing industry and are recognized professionally in the highest regard among clients and employees. Jenn and Rich have created a dynamic environment: free of politics, and full of support, open communication, respect and trust. It is the combination of all these traits that set them apart, and have contributed to their success. I look forward to many more years working with Jenn and Rich at Peak Pharma Solutions!
