Paragon’s Founding

In 1995, Dave Rock, Jr. opened Paragon International, Inc. to provide CME training for medical professionals. Since then we have grown to produce investigator meeting and manage participant enrollment to support the success of clinical trials. We are now one of the premiere clinical research support companies in the world. We have supported dozens of clinical trials and hundreds of meetings in over 40 countries, and we are proud to bring our expertise in event and personnel management to the clinical research space.

The Next Generation

Partnering with his father in 2001, David A. Rock, III was instrumental in expanding Paragon’s capabilities. From CME training to the suite of services that we offer today, Paragon’s leadership in the clinical research industry is a reflection of our president’s commitment to providing professional, worry free service so that medical teams can focus on providing the best care possible.

On the front lines of patient care, Drew Massey joined Paragon in 2007 and now runs the day-to-day operations of our patient logistics team. Whether it’s finding interpreters to provide culturally competent care or moving entire families from across the world to participate in life-saving clinical trials, Drew works tirelessly to ensure that patients get first-class care.
