DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA — FHI Clinical Inc. announces today the official closing of its acquisition of the clinical trials business of Triclinium Clinical Development Proprietary Limited (TCD), a full-service, South Africa-based CRO.

The global company will continue to be known as FHI Clinical, and FHI Clinical SA (Pty) Ltd is the operational arm of FHI Clinical in South Africa. Ted FitzGerald continues to lead FHI Clinical and FHI Clinical SA as Chief Executive Officer. Abraham Van Wyk joins the executive team as Managing Director, FHI Clinical SA, in addition to Sanchia Theron as Global Head, Medical Affairs, and Leonard Herbst, Global Head, Project Management.
Headquartered in Centurion (Gauteng), South Africa, FHI Clinical SA provides significant access to the South Africa market—a competitive market with significant growth opportunity.
