We are a team of dedicated professionals who craft solutions to address our clients’ business challenges through the implementation of technology. So we are proud to announce a new team member who we believe will take us to the next level in our solutions. In fact, his addition to the team contributed to the expansion of our competencies as a business. For these reasons and more, we are happy to welcome Hitesh Bhatt. He came on board to fill a new role of Managing Director of IT Quality and Regulatory Compliance.
Hitesh shared with us how excited he is to join us and to help build out the practice around regulatory compliance and overall IT quality–specifically for the life sciences industry. “The difference at Hawkins Point is the focus is truly on providing value for the clients where other companies have provided a service just for the sake of a revenue. Hawkins Point does their work with a focus on ‘client first’ versus a mindset that says ‘let’s just make the sale.'”
His Impressive Background
Hitesh was born in India, but definitely considers himself a New England local. He moved to Connecticut at 8 years old and from there he went to the University of Connecticut and got a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Computer Engineering in 2000. After college he found himself in the Boston area where he has gained in depth exposure to the Life Science Industry throughout that time. As a matter of fact, Hitesh now has over 18 years experience in the industry.
He has worked for several companies over the years helping to build practices internally. Hitesh has also been involved in independent consultant sales that focused heavily on IT quality. Everything from regulation, compliance regulations, policies and procedures to overall IT computer system validation, delivery life cycle, system development life cycles, efficient east improvements, and the list could go on.
While it was great for him to go independent for a number of years, he is excited to not just be a one-man shop. He’s excited to work on a team and aligns with our approach to the “resulting client experience.” He doesn’t want to just come in and fix problem. He wants to take the proactive approach and help clients understand their pain points and guide them to understanding what needs to happen to build out their process. That’s another reason he decided to join a consulting firm.
Why Hitesh Said Yes to Hawkins Point
We always strive to be a culture that serves our clients and community. We also want to be a culture that believes in family first. A culture that allows the work environment to be a place where employees aren’t overextending themselves but they get to spend their time on the right things in the job while still going home to their family each day to give them their focus. Hitesh is married and has a 14 year old son in the 9th grade. He loves spending time with them. He’s only a few hours from his parents too. He feels this new venture will be a great thing for both himself and his family.
He enjoys working within a close knit team. Another thing Hitesh is excited about is the opportunity to work with folks he’s known and worked with before, specifically co-founders John Cornwall and Heather Morris Kyer. He worked with them in a previous company many years ago and stayed connected ever since. He really respects what they’ve done and what they stand for. “I appreciate being able to work for and with them again.” Hitesh shared.
What Hitesh Is Here To Do
Simply put, Hitesh is going to help build our practice and expand what we can do for clients. For clients, he’ll be building out strong, structured IT Quality and Compliance departments so that those companies can efficiently and effectively follow regulatory compliance with good quality delivery without being overburdened.
We have full confidence in Hitesh’s abilities –and love how he’s already jumped in and gotten to work alongside clients. See more about him here.
