Pharma Executive Search

Whether your company is active in the consumer healthcare, pharma, OTC, or medical device industry, a pharma executive search can be difficult for several reasons. Finding and identifying the most suitable candidate is not a straightforward process that should not be rushed for the sake of saving time. This article outlines the difficulties of an executive search and explains how international networks can support your global search process.

How globalization affects your management

As the benefits of internationalizing your business are becoming clearer, corporations are expanding internationally, establishing subsidiaries, and creating partnerships with foreign firms. Competition in mature markets is high, and company growth can be quite difficult. Hence, companies that internationalize their products experience faster growth, additional sales revenue, and a larger client/consumer base. This prosperous situation results in a need for these companies to hire high-level managers who understand and respect cultural differences and at the same time have longstanding experience and knowledge of both national and international industries.

We can help you find the best fitting candidate!

Industry Experts

Globalization creates new demands and demands in new places. As a result, modern industries and companies trying to meet this new demand have developed. Increasingly, companies are emphasizing the search for experts from specific industries as the industries themselves are becoming more complex and more detailed. This means that qualifications and knowledge in one industry or segment do not necessarily transfer to another. Therefore, being able to fill a certain position with a candidate who has experience and knowledge of a specific industry is of great importance.

As pharma executive recruiters, we focus on filling executive positions for companies active in the consumer healthcare, pharma, OTC industry, and FMCG markets. Chameleon Pharma Consulting concentrates on filling high-level positions such as General, HR, Product, and Export manager positions, as well as regulatory specialists’ posts and more. Our expert knowledge of healthcare and FMCG helps us to select candidates that best fit your company and situation. The right candidate is one who will stay with you for a long time!
