Solving business challenges with the right people, isn’t plug and play. What differentiates TSP from other firms is our intention to prioritize interpersonal connection and identify candidates with the competencies that are going to lead to success.

Our Search Team Delivers Health and Life Science Leadership Talent Needed to Drive Your Business Forward

Our Executive Search Practice is a leader in placing Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Medical Device, Diagnostic, and Health IT executives from director level to the c-suite.  Our search strategy is built on the premise that people are much more than just their resumes, and that in addition to their experience, it is their personality, competencies and passions that ensure a great fit.  We are intentional to build strong relationships with diverse and accomplished Life Science and Healthcare leaders who have the vision and skillset to create change and move organizations forward.

While many search firms have access to great candidates, we work hard to create meaningful and lasting relationships, and treat every candidate with intention. It’s why organizations like to work with us – we value your most important asset: people.

How We Work

Our team follows a comprehensive and proven process that ensures that the best talent has been identified for your position. We see every project to its successful completion. Our search team works on a retained basis so we can dedicate the time and resources required to ensure a quality result. Retained search exemplifies a commitment from our organization and yours and lets talent know that you highly value this position.

As a boutique firm, we also have the flexibility to create win-win solutions and find creative ways to work with our partners.  Solutions can involve non-traditional fee schedules or a container approach for bundled projects.  If two parties want to work together, they find a way—so let’s talk!
