The company’s roots go back nearly a half century to 1960 when Arthur A. Checchi, former FDA Associate Commissioner, founded the company. In 1985 FDA’s Director of Regional Operations, Anthony C. Celeste, assumed the leadership of the company. He operated it under the name AAC Consulting Group (AAC). In 2001 the company was acquired by Kendle International, one of the world’s largest global clinical research organizations. In 2006 Mr. Steele, then President of AAC and Vice President of the company’s Regulatory Affairs, acquired the Division of Food, Dietary Supplement, and Cosmetic Consulting from Kendle. At that time he formed EAS Consulting Group as an independent company. In September 2007, pharmaceutical, medical device consulting was added to the list of services offered by EAS.
