- - - Software For A Marvellous Future Marvelution is a software company that simplifies Jenkins Integration in Jira and is predominantly focused on saving time for its clients. Built by Mark Rekveld, the firm has gone from strengthto-strength recently, culminating as it is recognised as 2022’s Leading Open-Source Software Development Specialists –Netherlands in the Corporate Vision Awards 2022. Based approximately 20 kilometres outside Amsterdam, Marvelution is a software development shop that grew from an open source software hobby project and focusses on the Jenkins Integration for Jira app. The goal of the app is to make the integration of Jenkins in Jira as easy as possible whilst providing insight into the results of Jenkins and its relation to Jira issues. Jira software is used for issue tracking and project management by more than 180,000 customers in around 190 countries, and Mark’s pioneering app has seen approximately 3,000 installs, and counting, to date. Some of the organisations that have used Jenkins Integration for Jira at some point in time have used it for bug-tracking and project management. These include big names, such as IBM, Dell, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard, and the National Bank of Canada. “I built Jenkins Integration for Jira initially to solve my own problem,” explains the firm’s Founder, Mark Rekveld. “I felt the integration process between Jenkins and Jira was inefficient and I thought there must be an easier way to work with Jenkins builds in Jira. Turns out I was not alone.” Mark has a senior software engineer background as well as being an experience designer and solution architect, creating and building from small open source software to large enterprise applications. Mark initially focused on Java software development following gaining a Bachelor’s degree in informatics and his company started out as a way for Mark to share his coding work with the world. What began very much as an interest for Mark has since grown into a small, yet highly successful, company that provides software development consulting and development of its own software be it open or closed source. “It has never been one magic thing,” he elaborates. “It is many little things I have added over time which I have learned with the help of the Jenkins and Jira communities.” Thanks to the help of the Jenkins community of Jira users, Mark has steadily improved Jenkins Integration for Jira. What began very much as an umbrella open-source project in 2007, has led to a journey of success stories. The initial app for Jira for Hudson integration, one of Mark’s very first projects, launched on the Atlassian Marketplace in 2009 then, in 2013, Jenkins Integration for Jira went live on the Atlassian Marketplace. Such was its overwhelming success that Mark was able to establish Marvelution as a company in its own right in 2015. Regarding clientele, Mark tells us that anyone that develops software using Jira and Jenkins is a potential customer. This can be from the smallest one-man hobbyist to the largest international corporations, banks, and governments. “I try to be as open, honest and direct as possible with customers and treat all of them the same no matter the revenue they generate,” Netherlands-based one-man band Mark elaborates, “I still do all the development and customer service myself. I’m active in the open-source community and, more generally, I enjoy coding to solve problems. “This is a reason I personally deal with all support requests; I like helping users as they help me build things I’m happy with.” By putting his customers first, he has developed software that truly helps those around him. He has become a shining example of what it means to be client-focused. Recently, Mark’s company was recognised for its hard work by being bestowed with the prestigious accolade of 2022’s Leading OpenSource Software Development Specialists – Netherlands by Corporate Vision and, whilst Mark’s biggest challenge is making sure the cloud app, Jenkins Integration for Jira, can accommodate the ever-growing demand. He has no definite plans regarding the future other than to keep having fun developing new features and assisting his dedicated customer base. Mark concludes, “I shall just continue to focus on turning my hobby into a company and keep providing software development services, next to supporting the existing open source projects, that have made Marvelution into what it is today.” Contact Details Contact: Mark Rekveld Company: Marvelution Web Address: Jan22181 “I built Jenkins Integration for Jira initially to solve my own problem,” explains the firm’s Founder, Mark Rekveld. “I felt the integration process between Jenkins and Jira was inefficient and I thought there must be an easier way to work with Jenkins builds in Jira.

ProPharma Group: Best Pharmaceutical Regulatory & Compliance Consultancy 2022 Science Minds over Regulatory Matters - Helping Emerging BioPharma & Device Companies Meet Their Objectives We provide support for a wide range of products including large or small molecules, medical devices and diagnostics, combination products, vaccines, generics, dietary supplements, IVD, nicotine replacement, and cell and gene therapy (ATMP). You name it and we have probably worked on it. C-Suite executives from emerging biotech and device companies choose ProPharma Group Regulatory Sciences (PPG-RS) for support because their success depends on optimal interactions with and submissions to regulatory agencies worldwide. For most clients, their first interaction with FDA is a Pre-IND Meeting; this critical meeting sets the tone for the entire development path. The difference between a great Pre-IND Meeting and a mediocre meeting is measured in years of development time and millions of dollars. ProPharma Group’s Vice President, Business Development, Jeff Antos says “this is one example of why it is so important to choose the most qualified consulting group to assist with the regulatory process”. In selecting a consulting group, the most important characteristics are as follows: • Scientific Credentials and Expertise: PPG-RS consultants have M.D.s, Ph.D.’s and other advanced degrees in key scientific disciplines representing toxicology, nonclinical, medical, clinical, drug safety, CMC, clinical pharmacology, biopharmaceutics, and medical device. • Frequent Interactions with Regulatory Agencies: Frequent interaction is necessary to understand key issues, personalities, and other nuances of Agency reviewers in each of the review divisions. PPG-RS has several meetings with review divisions each month. Our US office is in Washington, DC, enabling clients to conveniently prepare for and debrief from FDA meetings. • Experience: In his book, “Outliers,” author Malcom Gladwell states that, “it takes 10,000 hours of intensive practice to achieve mastery of complex skills and materials.” Each of our many strategists has more than 50,000 hours providing regulatory support. Unlike many of our competitors, PPGRS does not have a “B-Team.” The individuals you meet at the outset of the project are the people you will be working with for its duration. • Track Record of Success: Over the past four decades we have conducted approximately 30 successful formal meetings with FDA and EMA each year, including Pre-IND, End of Phase 2 Pre-NDA, Type C, INTERACT, Pre-Submission and Scientific Advice. During that same time period, we have submitted hundreds of successful INDs, NDAs, BLAs, ODDs, MAAs, 510(k)s, DeNovos, PMAs IDEs and Request for Designations. • Honest and Direct Advice: Our gap analyses and strategic assessments sometimes result in advice that the client would rather not hear. For example, on some occasions, when a client has wanted to request a Pre-IND meeting immediately, we have advised them that they will have a better outcome if they accomplish some of the prerequisites (e.g., a specific nonclinical study) first. • “Glocal” Reach: Local presence is necessary for regulatory success. We have a global footprint of local presence for FDA (US), EMA (Europe), MHRA (UK), PMDA (Japan), NMPA (China), TGA (Australia) plus many other countries. • Wide Range of Services: In addition to Regulatory Sciences, we offer our clients a comprehensive suite of services throughout the full product lifecycle available globally, including quality/ compliance services, R&D technology, clinical research solutions, medical information/pharmacovigilance, and post approval commercial support. • Flexibility: Every client has unique goals, objectives, styles of working and personality. We adapt our style to mesh with client teams, thereby becoming a single team dedicated to accomplishing milestones and business objectives. • Project Management: Effective project management is essential to project success. All of our projects have assigned PMs who are responsible for delivering contracted project results on time and within budget, managing the PPG team and communicating with the client team. How we work We can start anywhere in the process. Some clients come to us at the end of the process, requesting a review of their documentation prior to submission or for electronic publishing assistance. Whereas a majority of clients come to us at the beginning of the process with three things: a product, an indication and a question. Their question is, “what is the best way to get our product approved,” where best means cheapest, fastest, and highest probability of success. So, we spend time with our clients developing what we sometimes call a “Roadmap to Approval,” considering not just regulatory but assessing all of the scientific disciplines necessary for success, including nonclinical, clinical, CMC and clinical pharmacology. “The reason why we exist is simple: we help our clients get their drug and device products approved.”

Issue 4 2022 23 In most cases, after the development of the plan, we assist our clients through the key stage gates of development. For FDA, these are Pre-IND, IND, EoP2, Pre-NDA/BLA and NDA/BLA submission approval. We also provide support for Orphan Drug Designation (ODD), initial Pediatric Study Plans (iPSP) and any other FDA need. For most clients, we work on a project by project basis but we are sometimes asked to support our clients as their full regulatory department for a monthly retainer. Our clients are innovators, scientists and business executives of emerging pharma, biotech and medical device companies whose personal and corporate success is directly linked to regulatory success. They choose PPG-RS because we are unrivaled in the industry for helping clients achieve their regulatory milestones and business objectives. Company: ProPharma Group Website: Jeff Antos “Our goal is to be your regulatory partner, moving you from one regulatory phase to the next, in pursuit of your corporate objectives. Located across the globe and averaging 10 years of experience, our 150 professionals use thoughtfulness and scientific acumen to consistently exceed expectations and help our clients succeed.” Matthew Weinberg, President of Regulatory Sciences Matthew Weinberg Development Process for EU Approvals Is ue 4 0 Development Process for US Approvals Corporate Excellence 2 2 9

Issue 4 2022 27 Feb22504 The Leaders’ Leader Leadership Principles Ltd is the brainchild of motivational speaker Gordon Tredgold. Gordon tells us, “Leadership Principles is a leadership consultancy that caters to senior-level Managers, C-Suits Executives, and Entrepreneurs.” By working with Leadership Principles they are able to attain high level training, coaching, consultancy, and they can experience the true power of speech. Gordon Tredgold has now won Most Influential Corporate Motivational Speaker – 2022 for his ability to connect with people from around the world. From the moment Founder and Motivational Speaker, Gordon Tredgold, created Leadership Principles he knew that it was going to be big. With large dreams and the personality and passion to follow them, Gordon has built something incredible. Gordon is driven in everything that he does and he offers insight into what it means to be a leader – for the benefit of the people around us. He knows how to lead people and helps them to help others; Gordon helps us to reach our maximum potential. Gordon created a collection of principles called FAST which can help people to achieve results in their leadership practice. This collection of principles stand for: • Focus: focusing on goals with a clear direction. • Accountability: let people know you are accountable and show them how to be accountable too. • Simplicity: communicate simply and keep it clear-cut for clean results. • Transparency: this is all about being open and honest with both yourself and the people you work with so that both parties can discover the best way forward. Working with clientele such as Accenture, Westrock, Fujitsu, Fordham University, and many more, Leadership Principles has been part of a network of large, medium, and small businesses. It is quickly adding more connections to its roster by working with corporate clients, universities, and individuals. Not only does Gordon provide information and motivational speeches in person, but he also delivers then via the web – for ease of access from anywhere around the globe. Leadership Principles’ clients are all looking to improve communication, attitudes, and success within their fields. Its staff make these wishes come true for each client due to their positive and helpful attitude. Gordon says, “My staff are crucial to my success. There isn’t any leader who does it all alone. Behind every great leader there is a great team at work, and I am no different. Having the right attitude is paramount to me.” It is so important for all businesses to form a bond as a team, with a positive outlook. Gordon continues, “A lot of people talk about the importance of employee engagement, but that is just the starting point. What we really need is more empowered teams. People are not afraid of hard work; they are afraid of failure. As leaders, we need to give these people the right tools, techniques, and a belief that they will be successful. When we do that, our teams automatically become more engaged, empowered, and excited that helps them to not only just meet their potential but also exceed it!” With regards to the Covid-19 pandemic, Gordon doesn’t confine himself to the fear and uncertainty of the situation. He says, “I think less in terms of challenges but more in terms of opportunities.” He continues, “The pandemic created a leadership crisis as many in leadership positions lacked the skills to inspire and empower teams, which are critical when you’re working with remote teams. Fortunately, I have been leading remote teams for many years, so already understood how to do this, and this has helped create opportunities to share the skills that allow people to create engaged and empowered remote teams.” With this wealth of knowledge and plenty of experience behind him, Gordon’s Leadership Principles has truly sky-rocketed. Now that Gordon has won Most Influential Corporate Motivational Speaker – 2022, he is looking to create online self-teach versions so that people can self-teach from anywhere they live or work. He is looking forward to the future as he continues to learn and develop his own skills in order to benefit a plethora of clients. Corporate Vision is proud to present this award for all of Gordon’s hard work and dedication in everything he does.

Forging the Modern Corporate Communications Network Emboldened by a deeply ingrained commitment to being a cornerstone of modern business, eDiversa Group has made itself an integral part of document-share developments. With its user-intuitive platforms, its incredible staff, and its diligence regarding ensuring that its solutions seamlessly fit around each client’s needs and requirements, it has more than earned the title of the ‘Most Outstanding EDI Solutions Company’ for 2022. Additionally, it has created lasting relationships across all manner of scales and sectors with trust, respect, and honestly, bringing a personable aspect to an industry that can often lose the importance of people in amongst the data. EDI, known as electronic data interchange, is the business concept of trading documents in a standard scenario. It could be considered the forerunner of other forms of electronic document exchange that have taken on great importance in the business landscape, especially in the wake of the pandemic. eDiversa Group, with a strong background in electronic document exchange, is prepared to face this new reality that is so encouraging for the sector. With a motto of ‘your documents are our universe’, eDiversa Group is both a group and a connected company that specialises in fostering better connections in the business world, from document sharing to other electronic solutions that will allow a client to thrive in the emerging new epoch. With EDI solutions, electronic billing solutions, IBS services, SILICE, comeDiBuild, and even custom digital developments, it sets itself apart from its peers with custom rates tailored to a client and in-depth customer service. Fundamentally, right from the word go eDiversa Group will work with a client to draw out the details of their case, finding out how best it can help them by listening intently and fitting its solutions seamlessly around their existing infrastructure. In this manner, it makes itself a partner to their business that provides technology ‘at your service’, showing a client that remote technological solutions can be personable and friendly. Taking great pride in bringing technological solutions close to the client, connecting them to the wider world and facilitating the forging of tighter bonds across industry verticals and sectors, its adaptable nature has gained it significant notoriety. Many clients that have worked with it in various capacities leave it glowing reviews as a direct result of this. This, of course, is not something that has occurred overnight; eDiversa Group has been working hard since its inception to gain pre-eminence in its industry for electronic document interchange, going from purely an EDI specialist 18 years ago to the influential and varied business it is today. Nominally, its ability to provide the utmost value to clients through these services has made this possible, adapting to the requirements of any scenario and achieving the EDI supplier certification through hard work and grit. Its adaptability as a company can be seen developing during this time, resulting in the highly tailorable and flexible business that exists now, demonstrating in-depth knowledge of the different standards – nationally and internationally – as well as the different particularities of each sector in which these systems can be found. It also required demonstrating an intrinsic understanding of how the technological infrastructure can act as an intermediary for document transaction, needing connectivity to other EDI operators to ensure interoperability between users regardless of geographical boundary and other such restrictions. Over time, eDiversa Group has achieved each of these things, growing and consolidating its pace as the ideal partner for tackling any standard EDI project regardless of sector, location, or customer profile. Therefore, a big part of its reputation nowadays is meeting the requirements of its market with a shrewd competence that goes hand in hand with having its finger on the pulse of any new developments, leading it to be able to grow and adapt quickly and efficiently as and when such a thing is necessary. Additionally, as well as becoming one of the leading solutions for global electronic document transfer, exchange, and management, it must be considered that the solutions it provides have been emboldened by the efforts of different Spanish and European public administrations. Such organisations have been leading the charge for years now, encouraging digitisation and the improvement of businesses across the board.

In time, it hopes that it will be able to develop and implement fully customised solutions to automate the specific needs of any company regarding its relationship with customers and suppliers. Having recently added customised digital design to its portfolio, thanks to the recent acquisition of Oma Technologies, the company has been able to get a step closer to this goal. Omatech boasts three independent teams, each with almost 20 years of experience, and handling everything from design development to management of digital projects and more, giving eDiversa Group the necessary muscle it needed to get ahead with its own internal product development. Leading any specific digital development for any company or need, it has made its name from the very beginning upon the basis of providing its services and relationships within the crucible of friendly and charismatic customer service that will always go above and beyond for a client.
