The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), a global accreditation body, is thrilled to announce the hire of Scott Renkes as its new Business Development Manager. As the latest addition to the Business Development team, Renkes will create high-level business development strategies, work closely with prospective A2LA customers, and continue to foster, grow, and serve his expansive network of quality professionals.
Renkes comes to A2LA with nearly two decades of experience in quality management technology, ISO accreditation, and risk management. In his previous role, he served as a sales leader for Qualtrax, a SaaS offering quality management software to testing laboratories in a variety of sectors, including forensics, calibration, cannabis testing, clinical testing, environmental testing, and many others. Qualtrax is widely considered to be the keystone quality management software for testing organizations and provides the framework necessary for achieving and supporting the ongoing effort for ISO accreditation.
During his time at Qualtrax, Renkes built strong relationships with his customers by serving as an educator and resource. He gained a deep understanding of the challenges conformity assessment bodies (CABs) often face and was able to help them find solutions to reach their organizational goals.
