April 26, 2018 – Global executive search firm Coulter Partners recently opened a new office in Pittsburgh and brought in research analysts Rachel Matos and Rebecca Russell to work at that location. Coulter Partners’ London headquarters, meanwhile, consolidated its research analyst capability with the appointment of Matthew Dennehy.
“We are delighted to be investing in new technologies and skills both in Pittsburgh and London,” said Bianca Coulter, CEO. “Bringing in a new generation of research analysts, who can apply the very latest advanced analytics to build an insight driven business model will both refine our service to clients and enhance our business intelligence capabilities.”
Pittsburgh is fast becoming the tech center of the Millennial world, said Joe Coulter, COO. “At the forefront of driverless car technology, this former industrial powerhouse and urban hotspot is attracting an international and highly skilled workforce,” he said. “Carnegie Mellon University helped create the field of machine learning and artificial intelligence, and was the first university in the world to establish a machine-learning department.”
Ms. Matos is responsible for data quality, data management and research assignments for global senior executive search across the spectrum of life sciences. Her previous experience includes primary and secondary research, data analytics and project administration for public, private and academic institutions.
Ms. Russell’s focus will also be on data analytics, database management and research assignments for international senior executive search across all areas of life sciences. She draws on three years’ experience gained as a quality control chemist with a global pharmaceuticals company and previous experience at the Uber Advanced Technology Center
