Charles Romano

Senior Vice President, Medical and Scientific Affairs

Since the inception of Peachtree, “Charlie” has been a key resource in providing operational and project management expertise and strategic direction. Charlie has over 25 years of patient-care and international clinical research experience in project management, monitoring, and outsourcing in Phase I-IV pharmaceutical and biologic trials across numerous therapeutic areas. His experience as a military medic in multiple critical-care inpatient settings is invaluable for designing and managing complex clinical studies in a variety of patient care settings. Charlie has led global programs at Boehringer-Ingelheim, Pfizer, and UCB Pharma with a consistent track record of completing clinical programs on time and on budget. Of note, Charlie was instrumental in directing several UCB Pharma global pivotal clinical programs supporting the approval of levetiracetam (Keppra) and brivaracetam (Briviact) in pediatric and adult partial onset seizures.


In his role at Peachtree, Charlie directs all Medical & Scientific activities and is a Subject Matter Expert in project management, clinical monitoring, biometrics, medical writing, and partner support. His philosophy of “leading from the front” and “planning with the end in mind” creates proactive project teams that prevent and solve study issues innovatively – not create problems requiring Sponsor solutions.


Charlie has served on numerous panels at industry conferences and symposia on topics such as subject protection, Visual Analytics, EDC, and document integrity. He received his Bachelors in Biology from SUNY and a Masters in Public Health from Liberty University.
