Interim Head of HR at a Rapid-Growth Pharma Company

The operating partner at a global Private Equity firm was working on the carve-out acquisition of an undervalued pharmaceutical business. He knew it would take time to find the right lead for the new company’s Human Resources department, so he turned to Business Talent Group in search of an interim head.

We delivered an HR executive with over 20 years of experience setting the HR agenda for rapid-growth life science companies. Over the course of the next four months, she assumed responsibility for the management of all HR operations, handling the company’s Professional Employer Organization (PEO) relationship and driving recruiting efforts. After a full-time CHRO had been located, she stayed on for an additional two weeks in a part-time advisory capacity to help ease the transition.
