NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransPerfect Life Sciences, a leading provider of technologies and services to support clinical trials and product development for the biopharmaceutical industry, today announced the hiring of Kaarin Gordon as Vice President, Technology Solutions.
Gordon has more than 25 years of experience working with CROs and biopharma, medical device, med tech, and healthcare companies. Her focus has been implementing technology solutions and automation to help clients more effectively author, manage, translate, and publish global content.
Team-building, specialization, and collaboration are key strengths in Gordon’s work. Most recently, she led the development of the life sciences practice at SDL/RWS and previously held a leadership position at Lionbridge.
Gordon commented, “I know firsthand from my experience in the localization and technology space that TransPerfect is a leader in life sciences and is well-positioned to drive innovation and new solutions that address business challenges in life sciences.

I am thrilled to join the team.”
In her new role, Gordon will help lead an already-established specialty division with a dedicated approach and technology stack for life sciences. Her focus will be on optimization and innovation, applying the company’s existing technologies, such as GlobalLink® and Trial Interactive®, in new ways.
