Mark Howard

Managing Partner

I have over 15 years executive search experience in life sciences and healthcare. The experience I gained in several boutique search providers and at Korn/Ferry Futurestep prepared me for my move to The RSA Group. During my career I have developed a substantial reputation for providing solutions to a range of organisations in the pharmaceutical, biotech and medical devices sectors, as well as the UK NHS and the wider public sector. With a strong focus on commercial roles, my industry breadth brings substantial value to clients. I have also led searches for talent & leadership in disciplines ranging from discovery research, clinical development to finance and human resources.

A qualified marketer, my career commenced in the FMCG sector where I held senior sales and marketing positions, developed consumer brands and built successful relationships with major clients, both domestically and internationally. Moving into the recruitment industry I have worked internationally and have substantial leadership experience, having developed successful teams placing talent sourced globally. I have been responsible for establishing operations in the UK, Africa and the Asia/Pacific region.
