Over 20 Years of
Diverse Life Sciences Experience

When we say we are experienced, we mean we have seen everything. We understand the difference in culture and process from an established 100,000-person enterprise, compared to a VC-backed start-up making its first-ever external hire or a dynamic biotech growing from clinical to commercial stage seemingly overnight. You need someone that’s specifically right for your company. We listen, customize our proven process, and find the right talent.

Executive Search

The Cornerstone Approach

First, we listen. While other executive search firms have their way of doing things, we prefer to take your lead and learn first. Once we know you and your story, we assemble our team around your needs.

Led by a highly specialized and experienced Partner within the firm, your customized search starts to take shape. We work hand-in-hand with your hiring team in order to create a winning plan of action, based on performance milestones and a clear understanding of expectations.

We built our trusted process over 20 years of specialized executive search within the life sciences space. During this time, we have developed an expansive network of relationships, that we couple with a cutting-edge approach to our research, outreach, follow-up and advertising campaign to find the candidates you want.

From here, your search remains in the hands of a trusted Partner, who plays an active, end-to-end role. This includes the most critical communication in the process – the first interaction with the candidate themself. The candidate relationship is led by the Partner all the way to the offer stage and eventual onboarding.

Contact us today, so you can stop searching and start strategizing with one of our Partners through our customized process.
