Nicole Ferrari, President

Nicole founded Global Validation with the intent to provide customers with high quality validation solutions in the US and Eurpoe. Nicole is an American trained chemical engineer who moved to Milan Italy and lives part time in both the US and Italy. Her connection to Europe provides North American pharmaceutical companies the opportunity to have a highly trained engineer perform factory acceptance testing on equipment being purchased from Europe. Nicole is also very skilled at providing training and knowledge transfer to all employee levels (operators, engineers, maintenance technicians, supervisors). This service saves the pharmaceutical company time and money and allows their valuable employees to continue working on site.
