We Understand Science and the Science of Success

Our Story

We started our journey in 2009, and since then we’ve helped many of the most successful life sciences companies build their Medical Affairs and Clinical Operations teams — and we continue to do this with our client’s concern for efficiency, resourcefulness, spending, and compliance in mind. It’s not enough for us to find organizations candidates with the right experience, we want to deliver exceptional leaders who are passionate about science.

Unlike other firms offering similar services, we integrate risk management capabilities, through exceedingly careful screening of candidates and use of a proprietary database which contains vital statistics for tens of thousands of Medical Affairs and Clinical Operations professionals, including Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs), Clinical Trial Liaisons (CTLs), Medical Directors, VPs/Directors of Clinical Development currently working in the United States and overseas. Through our database, we can assess candidates across a spectrum of past experiences and future potential. We also know the market — we’ve implemented salary benchmarking and job grading into the search process. This ensures you’ll secure the right candidates for your open positions.
