Clinical SCORE names Samantha Daugherty vice president of operations

Clinical SCORE has appointed Samantha Daugherty to vice president of operations. She will oversee the operational framework that supports qualitative and quantitative research projects in all three areas of Clinical SCORE’s expertise — clinical, commercial and medical affairs. 

“We welcome Samantha’s experience, skills and insight,” said Ross Weaver, Clinical SCORE’s founder and president. “Her proven ability and commitment to excellence will ensure that we deliver the highest quality insights to our clients.”

Extensive professional experience

Daugherty has 25 years of experience in domestic and international project management and data collection operations, including 15 years as vice president of operations in social science research. Most recently, she was vice president of strategic resource management at SSRS Research, a full-service survey and market research firm. While there, she developed an address-based sampling model to improve response rates and reduce data collection costs. She also created advanced tracking tools to evaluate trends.

Coordinating efforts around the globe

Daugherty earned a bachelor of science degree in safety science from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. While still a student, she worked in research call centers. After she graduated, she started her professional career at Taylor Nelson Sofriess. While she was there, she launched a full-service international call center operation and managed complex multi-country surveys. Some projects required communication and translation between a dozen countries, teams and client groups. She then spent 11 years as vice president of operations at Princeton Data Source. She provided leadership to both client services and operations professionals.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to help Clinical SCORE deliver tremendous value to their clients and ultimately improve patient care,” Daugherty said.
