“We are excited to see that the expert judges saw what we saw, a unique and clever way to tell our clients’ and our stories in an exciting and memorable manner,” says Kevin Coker, co-founder and CEO at Proxima CRO. “We designed our new superheroes, Proxi and Mini Proxi, to elevate our brand strategy in recognition of our clients and our expert teams here at Proxima.

Superheroes are, in our opinion, the most appropriate branding.”

As inventors of medical devices, technology, and pharmaceuticals that save lives and improve the quality of life for people around the world, Proxima CRO clients really are the superheroes of the world, and the Proxima regulatory and clinical teams are their superhero partners. “When superheroes come together, they first have to assemble,” says Isabella Schmitt, RAC, Director of Regulatory Affairs at Proxima CRO and head of the internal marketing team. “We employ our expertise in regulatory, clinical, and the full entrepreneurial journey to take our clients from concept to market quickly and with ease.”
