Compli was founded in 2001 by Bruce Huval and Steve Wattenmaker to provide commissioning, validation and regulatory support services to the life sciences industry.
In 2017, Greg Spanel was hired to form a new Compliance and Validation Team within the Life Sciences group at GBA (George Butler Associates). In 2018, Dave Koncak came on board to form a new Asset Management & Reliability Services team. In 2020, these two teams were combined, and additional On-Demand Staff Augmentation services were added.
In 2020, ownership of the Compli transitioned from the founders to GBA. This partnership provides a broader network of experts to support traditional consulting areas and broadens service offerings to clients in pharma, biotechnology, veterinary, cosmetic, and medical device companies. The management team at Compli consists of Greg Spanel, Bruce Huval, Steve Wattenmaker, Dave Koncak and Jeff Brownlee.
