LARGO – The Pinellas Education Foundation recently announced that Cathy Collins, president and CEO of Clinical Consulting Solutions, has been appointed chairman of the Pinellas Education Foundation for a two-year term as of July 1, 2014.

Clinical Consulting Solutions is a full service clinical trials consulting company, which provides operational and financial support to research centers nationally. An entrepreneur, Collins previously was CEO of Meridien Research, which she co-founded in 2000. Meridien Research conducts a wide variety of clinical trials and has five centers in Tampa Bay. She was also CEO of Insearch, which she co-founded in 2008. Insearch provides business development services to clinical trial centers throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. She sold both companies in December 2012.

Prior to Meridien Research and Insearch, she served as the vice president of operations for Clinical Studies LTD with 53 research centers. She developed six research centers in Florida for CSL including a Phase I unit in Fort Lauderdale. She also served as vice president of operations for Protocare Trials with 32 research centers. Protocare was a venture backed site acquisition model that was purchased by Radiant Research. Collins has worked in the clinical research industry since 1991.

Collins has both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in nursing and is currently enrolled in the Harvard Business OPM program class of 2015. She also serves on several boards in her community including past chair of Shorecrest Preparatory School, Bank of Tampa advisory board and The Museum of Fine Arts.

She has been a member of the Pinellas Education Foundation’s board of directors since 2008.

She has served in leadership roles on the board including treasurer and vice chair and is chair of the future plans fundraising committee.

Collins replaces Jim Myers, president and COO of the Crown Automotive Group, who will remain on the board of directors and serve on the executive committee where he will focus on leading an effort to address the gender achievement gap.
