January 20, 2022 – Fort Lee, NJ-based Stevenson Search Partners (formerly The Stevenson Group), a global life science executive search firm, has launched a company-wide rebranding, including a new name, logo, visual identity and website. The search firm said the changes are meant to reflect its evolution into a modern and dynamic next generation search partner for life science companies. “The refreshed branding reinforces the company’s mission to find and deliver executive talent who inspire, innovate and make a real impact across the biotech, pharmaceutical, medical/healthcare technology and CRO/CDMO sectors,” said the firm.
“We are thrilled to begin 2022 with a renewed brand, energy and commitment to providing leading edge talent to our partners across the globe,” said Adam Bloom, president and CEO. “By enabling life science companies to harness the best talent and the brightest minds, we’re hoping to strengthen the entire segment, igniting more innovation and advancements across the globe. That’s good not only for our clients, but for patients and our healthcare environment overall.” The recent significant growth in the global life science industry – fueled in part by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as revolutionary medical and biotech developments – has created heightened demand for innovation and new talent, said the recruiter. In 2021, funding to the healthcare, biopharma and health-tech sectors set new records, nearly doubling 2020 totals, and providing a large pool of capital to support investments and advancements over the next several years.
The industry has also risen to meet the critical COVID-19 challenges, including the development of new MRNA technology and efficacious, life-saving vaccines and therapeutics in an unprecedented and expedited timeframe. “Stevenson’s updated branding embodies its passion and commitment to supporting the remarkable life science professionals who are dedicated to advancing medicines, improving lives and making a difference,” said the firm.
The search firm boasts of an entrepreneurial and diversity-driven culture, with expansive industry expertise and broad international reach. In 2020, Stevenson expanded its operations with the opening of an office in the U.K., which also serves the E.U. and other regions, as part of its strategic growth in the global life science and healthcare area.
“This is an important time for the life science industry, and our U.K. office presence now better positions us to serve our clients with enhanced access, efficiencies and understanding of local markets,” said partner Renu Vijh. “It is further proof of our momentum and differentiation in the marketplace as we continue to widen our global network and expertise.”
With more 40 years of experience, Stevenson Search Partners serves the global biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical technology, health technology and CRO/CDMO sectors, with offices in the U.S. and the U.K. Founded in 1979, Stevenson’s expertise includes C-suite, research, clinical, development, commercial manufacturing, and corporate functions, and working with companies ranging from start-ups and academic spinouts to large pharma clients. Stevenson provides a collaborative, long-term approach to its clients with a global network and strategic talent mapping and pipelining and competitive analysis services.
