Longtime BPIA volunteer Tim Damico, Certis USA Executive Vice President-North America, accepted the award at the recent BPIA meeting. “Certis USA is fully committed to BPIA and the biological products industry. On behalf of the many Certis USA employees who contribute to BPIA, we are proud to have received this award,” Damico said.
