PRINCETON, N.J., June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Covance Inc. (NYSE: CVD) today announced that Steve Street, Ph.D., has joined the company as Global Vice President and General Manager, overseeing Covance's worldwide safety assessment and pharmaceutical chemistry services.  He will be based in Harrogate, UK. Dr. Street, with more than 27 years of experience in biopharmaceutical R&D, joins Covance from Pfizer, Inc., where he served as Vice President and Head of two global R&D units – the Research Centers of Emphasis and Continuous Improvement.  In these roles, he led the company's high-performing technology and operations group to increased portfolio development speed and project survival, ultimately creating a positive impact across multiple therapeutic areas, including chemistry and biology outsourcing, innovation, and new indications.  During his tenure at Pfizer, Dr. Street also served as Head of the company's Worldwide Chemistry Discipline.
