Retired executive Granger Haugh was the founder of U.S. based Cliniqa Corporation, a globally recognized leader in the design and manufacture of liquid stable controls and calibrators used worldwide in the medical diagnostic industry. Upon the sale of the family company, Granger created the Haugh Family Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting U.S. Veterans, creating inclusive learning opportunities for special needs children and social entrepreneurship opportunities for people in recovery from drugs and alcohol.
