January 13, 2023 – Life sciences-focused search firm Slone Partners has launched Slone Partners Cybersecurity, a national talent recruitment firm that delivers diverse commercial, operational, and technical cybersecurity specialists and leaders for companies in all business verticals and health systems. The firm is a successor to Wolf Hill Group, which was founded as a joint venture with Slone Partners in 2019.
Adam Slone, founder of Slone Partners, will continue to advise both companies and be actively involved in guiding Slone Partners Cybersecurity as a value-driven organization committed to its clients. Leslie Loveless will remain CEO of both firms, while Tara Kochis will remain president of both firms.
“Slone Partners Cybersecurity will draw upon the expertise, experience, and networks that have positioned Slone Partners as one of the nation’s top executive recruiting firms in the life sciences and healthcare industries,” said Mr. Slone. “We are fully prepared and excited to deliver on our mission of securing critical cybersecurity talent who build and protect amazing organizations.”
The renamed firm has more than 75 years of combined recruiting experience among its founders and is well positioned to understand and meet the cybersecurity talent needs of high-performing organizations in a competitive market, said Slone Partners. While the firm will engage in searches for leadership positions including board members, CEOs, CISOs, and CTOs, it is also designed to support companies seeking specialists for their cybersecurity teams, including analysts, engineers, program managers, threat hunters, and security officers.

As a company, we are sincere advocates of the power of diversity, equity, and inclusion to make great companies even greater, and that is baked into all of our cybersecurity recruiting strategies.
