etrials Worldwide, a provider of e-clinical software for use in clinical trials, is expanding its management team by hiring a chief technology officer.

Taking the post is Jay Wilson. Wilson joins etrials from IBM where she was a technical solutions manager, delivery product executive and program manager. She also was involved in leading information technology initiatives for Fortune 500 clients.

“As eClinical applications become increasingly important to drug research, etrials understands that the global infrastructure needed to make these applications highly available, redundant and scalable is a critical component of their acceptance and success,” Wilson said. “As CIO I am eager to undertake the continued improvement and development of the innovative technology infrastructure, training, support and partnerships that etrials offers its clients.”
