If you can do these three things that formula always spells success. Eddie Garcia is the epitome of that. Since coming into ALKU as a Pharmaceutical QVC Account Manager he was one of our top producers. Eddie always led the team, not only in spread but in effort and commitment. Once we started AR&D, we knew he was the first person we wanted to help bring us to the top. He came into a startup and led by example as well as kept the culture fun and exciting for everyone else. I couldn’t think of a more natural progression than for him to now lead the Durham office into its next chapter. Eddie is going to teach, motivate, and inspire the next wave of ALKU. Congrats on all your success!” – Ryan Rudich, Pharmaceutical AR&D Sales Manager.

“Eddie Garcia! Huge congratulations on your new promotion! From the day that I first met Eddie, the thing that stood out the most to me was how much he cared. How much he cared about ALKU, his job, his team, his success, his perception, his continuous improvement… the list goes on. This level of care resulted in years of hard work, passion, eagerness, and now opportunity. Eddie has always been someone to say yes to a new challenge. When Pharmaceutical AR&D was starting up, Eddie jumped at the opportunity to be a part of something new and exciting and now he’s taking his skills to Durham. Eddie always comes to work with a smile, stories to tell and has been the heart and soul of our groups. Eddie is going to do amazing things at the Durham Training Center. I know he will take that same level of care and passion and bring it to Durham, getting those interns excited to work for ALKU. Eddie has always had such a special place in my heart, and I couldn’t be prouder of him and this next step in his career. He brings compassion and heart into his job and I’m excited for Durham to experience that.
