The Life Sciences practice of Sterling-Hoffman was formed with a simple purpose:
help biotechnology, pharmaceutical & medical device companies change the world via acquisition of the best people
Pharmaceutical companies are under tremendous pressure to uncover the next blockbuster drug with pipelines drying up and drug patents expiring. At the same time, investors are demanding profits NOW. The two conflicting forces represent an immense challenge to the industry. Meanwhile, venture capital is flowing into Biotechnology companies like never before, in an attempt to meet the desperate need for new drugs brought on by an aging baby-boomer population worldwide. This aging population is also adding to the demand for medical devices. Yet the long FDA approval process and the high cost of R&D are causing significant barriers to market entry. Vital to the ecosystem, Contract Research Organizations are struggling to hire people willing to take on the grueling travel and long hours required to ensure that clinical trials go smoothly.
Established in 2004, our Life Sciences practice provides executive search and recruitment services to the CRO, Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals & Medical Device markets. With over 200 recruitment & research professionals worldwide and offices located in Silicon Valley, Chicago, Raleigh, Boston, Williamsville, and Toronto - as well as a long history of serving venture capital firms and their portfolio companies, our firm is quickly emerging as the premier recruitment & clinical staffing firm in the Life Sciences arena. – less–ZoomInfo
