I was most impressed with Tom and his team’s prepared and organized approach to target the right candidate for our Vice President of Interventional Cardiology Programs. He helped me better understand what I really needed so our candidates exceeded my (already high) expectations. As we narrowed in on the top slate, he ferreted out the personal challenges and found Seth Bilazarian, MD, whose motivation to help patients and work ethic align with the high energy environment of Abiomed.

A lot of my career is based on my interaction with Tom. I was happily retired on my boat when I get this call from Tom Callaway… he said, ‘I can help you work with people in Silicon Valley. You can build good companies. But more importantly, you can tackle a big problem; I want you to come cure brain cancer and I can put you together with the right people to do that.’ And while I thought I was retired, I realized Tom was right…I came to my first interview and seven years later I’m still running the foundation trying to cure brain cancer.

Kidding him, I told Tom that he must be showing off. The truth is that I was impressed. Tom was able to simultaneously recruit both our CEO and SVP Sales in lockstep, making sure each knew of each other and the options. It was a thorough and professional process. We now have the leadership team to power the company forward and provide us with a significant return on our investment while introducing a new product to protect healthcare workers.

I have known Tom for the past 10 years, and sought his counsel several times. I was pleased that he reached out to me – and thought my skill set ligned up with EndoChoice’s leadership needs. Two private financings and an IPO later, we still have work to do. But Life Science Partner was the catalyst to bring me on board.

I’ve known Tom for over 10 years both as a candidate and a client. Tom and the Life Science Partner team are always a pleasure to work with. They listen attentively to their clients’ requirements, are well-organized, have an amazing network from which to recruit, and have an uncanny ability to link people with like minds to achieve superior results. Right now we’re working to build a new “smart” orthopedic device, and he’s helping me identify deep knowledge consultants and functional leaders.

I was particularly impressed with Life Science Partner and the way they presented Vestagen as a chance to enhance my skills at an entrepreneurial organization while changing the way nurses think about protective clothing and reduced infection within the healthcare environment.
