Compass Helps a Pharmaceutical Company Build Out Their Medical Affairs Team

The Challenge – finding experienced Medical Affairs professionals

When a Southern California pharmaceutical company needed to quickly build out their Medical Affairs department and didn’t have time for onboarding, they turned to Compass.

The Result – 18 key leaders with a blend of consultants and direct-hire professionals

Compass was able to quickly provide expertise and assistance with onboarding and bringing on a large group of people in a very short period of time.

“With the deep knowledge of the industry and understanding of each role, Compass helped us quickly fill 18 key managerial and senior executive level members on the team. Between the blend of consultants and direct-hire professionals, they delivered solutions and expertise across our department that helped us succeed.”

Compass Filled Short and Long-Term Positions
