Lochlin Partners has managed multiple high-profile searches for a very select group of client companies in the biotech/pharma sector. These companies appreciate—and benefit from—our understanding of the unique challenges they face in recruiting senior-level executives.
Biotech is still a relatively young industry, and there are only a handful of large, successful companies from which to draw candidates. For these reasons, each qualified candidate has multiple opportunities to consider. The primary challenge is convincing them that our client offers the best next step on their career trajectory. We do this through diligent work, persistence, and face-to-face meetings where we build trust as we present the hiring organization’s advantages—an approach that involves time and resources that larger firms typically can’t afford to invest.
We understand that biotech/pharma is an extremely competitive industry encountering regulatory challenges with many future unknowns. Big drugs are going off patent; pipelines have been slow to fill the void. An aging population with limited budgets and healthcare reform pushing to cut costs point to more generic drugs gaining market share. And the constant push toward globalization and the move of manufacturing facilities overseas comes with a whole set of issues that only a select few are equipped to handle.
With our industry knowledge and extensive network, we find those select few. We are proven search professionals who have filled the following roles for our clients:
