“We are grateful to have a leader with Nancy’s broad range of experience in commercial banking, risk management and lending, as well as her significant expertise in business transformation join our Board of Directors.

Foster has served as President and CEO of The Risk Management Association since 2018, where she has worked with the board, chapters, regulators and institutional members to advance sound risk management practices among the 100-year-old association’s more than 1,900 financial institutions, which collectively represent 85 percent of bank assets in the U.S. and Canada.

Tandy Tipps Ph. D., has been appointed to lead Inteliquet’s relationships and solutions development with healthcare organizations and cancer centers. Tipps will focus on advancing a site-centric approach to patient matching for clinical trials and precision medicine through a combination of powerful technology, analytics, and clinical research expertise. Dr. Tipps, who will serve as Inteliquet’s Senior Vice President, Healthcare Organizations Solutions, has more than 25 years leading oncology clinical research initiatives and developing global research site networks.
Most recently Dr. Tipps developed and led the Oncology Site Network at Precision for Medicine, which is a global oncology site network consisting of 74 sites. Previously, she was the Administrative Director of the world’s largest Phase 1 program at UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
Dr. Tipps stated, “I have always been driven by an impatience with the barriers that prevent cancer patients from potential life-saving therapies due to a lack of unbridled access to clinical trials. Inteliquet’s unparalleled OncWeb™ platform eliminates these barriers and provides treatment options to patients that might not otherwise have them.”
Dr. Tipps also noted, “Cancer centers are challenged because they do not constantly receive the technology and support they need to accurately match the right patient to the right drug, while also ensuring data quality and compliance. Inteliquet meets this challenge and supports sites. We value our site relationships and view them as the bedrock to beating cancer.”
