We recruit for companies in the biotechnology hubs of the Bay, San Diego and Boston – but also in the heartland of Cleveland, Boulder and our hometown of Atlanta. We partner with the Board and the senior leadership team to recruit the most successful candidates, as we know that these projects require attention and urgency, with accuracy.
As in our complementary practices, we’re ready to assist in everything from defining corporate needs to filling specialized scientific roles to larger, pipeline projects.
