Industry Experts


Our team has direct Biopharmaceutical industry experience and deep roots within the scientific community.  Most of our recruiting experts were once scientists with degrees in physiology, biochemistry, and biology and possess an average of three years lab experience from companies like Novartis, Millennium, Genzyme and more.  Our tenured Biopharmaceutical focus gives you unparalleled access to the talent you seek.

Biopharmaceutical Focus

Colby Clarizia’s introduction to the biotech industry and subsequently into recruiting was through his participation in a life changing clinical trial, a less traditional path than most take to a career in recruitment.  Colby has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for 17 years and has been an active participant in clinical trials for a Bionic Pancreas through Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston University since 2013. As part of the trial, he wears two pumps, one with insulin and one with glucagon as well as a continuous glucose monitor—which when combined, form a fully integrated and automated bihormonal closed loop system that regulates his glucose metabolism. While he graduated with a degree in Biology and had worked in the lab, his exposure to clinical development had the greatest impact on his career, leading him to scientific recruiting. As an expert liaison between top-notch scientists and the companies who hire them, he has an authentic interest in placing the talent that brings new drugs to the market.
