Your first point of contact
PDS founder and Managing Director, Carol Kingstone is both passionate about her company and wholeheartedly committed to delivering world-class services to its clients.
Renowned for her inexhaustible levels of energy and enthusiasm, great sense of humour and wisdom, she is someone who leads by example. Drawing on a wealth of experience and expertise in marketing for the life sciences and healthcare sector, Carol is the heartbeat of PDS. Through her clear focus, drive and outstanding project management skills, PDS continues to grow and expand in response to a broadening client base in the UK, Europe, USA, EMEA and the Far East.
Carol’s story is a great example of how PDS has grown and evolved in response to both the developing needs of its clients and to significant changes in regulations. This has been particularly relevant during the past five years, through taking the strategic decision to provide PDS’s clients with critical xEVMPD services, bringing much success along the way.
Today, Carol continues to focus the ever growing team on delivering excellence to all PDS’s clients, whilst maintaining a hands-on approach by heading up the xEVMPD side of the business. As we enter a new era with the advent of IDMP, Carol is determined that PDS will become the benchmark for outsourced professional services and customer satisfaction in the life-sciences sector.
Outside of work Carol is a keen gardener, likes to cook and spend time with family and friends. She also enjoys music and the theatre, travel and is regularly seen power walking to stay fit and healthy. Oh and did we mention she’s partial to a glass or two of good wine with friends!
