Compass Consulting, a national talent partner focused solely in the BioPharma industry, recently supported the build-out of a Medical Affairs Department by swiftly placing key managerial and senior executive level members on the team.  A Southern California pharmaceutical company needed strategic solutions to secure industry experienced experts for 18 key roles.  Utilizing years of experience working in-house at various BioPharma companies, Compass delivered a blend of Consultants and Direct-Hire professionals.

With Compass’s network of industry experienced Medical Affairs professionals, some of the first positions supported included:

  • Director of Scientific Communications
  • Director of Medical Communication & Information
