President, Global Head R&D Search Practice

“The pharmaceutical/biotech industry is facing dramatic changes due to competition and regulation. I am dedicated to ensuring that my clients locate and hire talent who are flexible and creative with a vision toward future challenges.”

As the leader of the research and development practice for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector, Dan conducts executive searches in both North America and Europe. After graduating from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the School of Informatics, he started at Fairway Consulting Group recruiting in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology commercial search area.

Dan quickly transitioned into a new role building a search practice focused on the research and development side of the industry. Through that effort, he created and organized a comprehensive database and cultivated relationships that still exist today with many key executives. Since 2002, he has placed over one hundred and fifty pharma and biotech professionals in positions covering clinical research/medical affairs, regulatory affairs/quality assurance, drug safety/epidemiology, pathology/toxicology, and many others.

Dan is also an active member of the National Parkinson’s Foundation and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
