Fast-growing life science sector requires a trusted, agile and collaborative partner to support innovation and revolutionary medical developments
FORT LEE, N.J., January 19, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stevenson Search Partners (formerly The Stevenson Group), a global life science executive search firm, announced today the launch of a company-wide rebranding, including a new name, logo, visual identity and website, 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.
The new name reflects who the company has been for more than 40 years (Stevenson), what it does (Search), and its important driving philosophy (Partner). The visual identity represents the energy, connections and authenticity of the company, and, the revamped website presents its expertise, diversity as well as client stories. Together, they point Stevenson forward into an exciting, dynamic industry which it has spent decades serving and strengthening.
"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 Chief Executive Officer, Stevenson Search Partners. "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. 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 years1.
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.
The company’s entrepreneurial and diversity-driven culture, with its expansive industry expertise and broad international reach, continue to set it apart as a long-term strategic partner and champion. In 2020, Stevenson expanded its operations with the opening of an office in the United Kingdom, which also serves the European Union 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 UK office presence now better positions us to serve our clients with enhanced access, efficiencies and understanding of local markets," said Renu Vijh, Ph.D., Partner, Stevenson Search Partners. "It is further proof of our momentum and differentiation in the marketplace as we continue to widen our global network and expertise."
