Paul Foster

Senior Consultant

I have over 20 years’ biopharmaceutical industry experience, primarily in sales and marketing roles and 15 years in executive search.

In my industrial career I held a range of leadership roles in Sales and Marketing, initially leading the Emerging Markets team at May & Baker (Sanofi) and then leading the UK launch of Rilutek for Motor Neurone Disease. After successfully launching two CNS products for Pharmacia I developed the branded products team at Trinity-Chiesi, where I was also responsible for Marketing Strategy and sales team recruitment. I then joined RSA to build a pharmaceutical sales & marketing franchise. Over nearly 15 years in executive search I have created a number of successful search practices and have developed a deep understanding of Commercial, Clinical Development, Medical and Regulatory Affairs, and the specific needs of both clients and candidates.

I re-joined RSA in February 2014 where I am helping our clients build their international capability through the placement of transformational candidates.
