Biotech Executive Search is a specialist field. Carmichael Fisher’s team understand that this is an area that presents specific challenges with unique business models and scientific innovation that create the need for strong leadership. Recent research suggests that biotech organisations are outpacing large pharma in regards to commercial growth and R&D investment further enhanced by a highly dynamic M&A environment. This increasingly creates the demand for novel approaches to talent development driven by the trend of acquisitions, alliances and in-licensing deals.


Carmichael Fisher’s Biotechnology team has experience working with research organisations and biotech companies. Our team of consultants understands the leadership needs and the talent landscape across the sector including start-up as well as established biotech organisations.

Leveraging on our expertise and search experience together with our team’s cultural awareness and sensitivity, Carmichael Fisher understands the critical aspects to consider when building strong leadership teams for biotech organisations.
