The position of VP of USA was previously held by Rick Meraw who has recently been promoted to the VP of Global Quality.
Mr. Patel was recently asked for comment on his new opportunity and stated, “I look forward to this new opportunity! I’m ready to take on the challenge of picking up the ball from Rick (Meraw) and continuing to strengthen the synergy we have established throughout the US Operation. Our US directors work well together by supporting one another strengthening Gardien in North America as a whole. This change provides the needed support in our global quality structure, subsequently allowing us to focus on aligning quality standards and procedures across Gardien’s global network.”
