Compliance Director Ulatowski announces retirement

This article was originally published in The Silver Sheet

Executive Summary

CDRH Office of Compliance Director Tim Ulatowski will retire from FDA at the end of the year, the veteran agency staffer announced in an April 12 memo to staff. An opening for the director position was posted by FDA the same day. A smooth transition is important given CDRH's ambitious agenda for the coming years, Ulatowski said in his memo. "A break in permanent leadership for maybe a few months while all this is occurring would not be helpful," noted Ulatowski, who has been with FDA since 1974 and with the Office of Compliance since 2003. Once the new director is hired, Ulatowski will shift to a temporary advisory role until his retirement. "The fact that Tim has announced his retirement is a very gracious decision on his part, because he has allowed the center leadership to identify his successor and to put his successor in place in a timeframe in which Tim will still be available to mentor his successor," Steve Silverman, senior advisor to the center director, said May 5 at the MedCon medical device conference in Cincinnati
