Since 1974, Strawn Arnold & Associates, Ltd. has focused entirely on the search for, and selection of, key talent for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device and diagnostics industries as well as for healthcare IT, services and provider organizations.
All of the Partners have held significant executive and line management positions with major health care companies in North America, Europe and Asia. Because they understand the business issues facing the health care industry, they can help define search parameters to maximize effort, decrease time-to-fill, and source top talent from within the industry.
In addition, our firm has the unique capability of offering insight and experience into every sector of the healthcare marketplace. In today's diverging industry climate, our Partners provide a powerful solution for organizations that find themselves involved in multiple market sectors.
Since 2003 our firm has doubled in business size and scope of clients, thanks to a firmly established strong presence in medical devices as well as continued leadership positions in pharmaceutical and biotech. Currently our firm is one of the 20 largest boutique healthcare retained search firms in the United States. Recent clients range from billion-dollar, multinational pharmaceutical and medical device corporations to recently formed, venture-backed start-ups. In addition, increased focus on the growing needs in the healthcare IT, services and provider segments has added even greater depth to the firm's clientele.
In 2009 our firm was ranked as one of the top 30 retained executive search firms in North America, according to a list compiled by the industry-leading newsletter Executive Recruiter News (ERN) published in its February 2009 issue.
