Professional Background

Jeff joined Klein Hersh in 2013 and has played an integral role in the growth of our Pharma Services practice.  Jeff's team has established itself as the premier search partner within the CRO and CDMO space when it comes to placing the key executives leading the business and operations behind the science.  Areas of search specialty include: CEO, COO, CCO, CFO, President/GM and the Director-VP level business executives that report up into those functions.  Having secured crucial executive hires with some of the world’s leading CROs/CDMOs, as well as new entities looking to disrupt the space, his team is poised to provide value to our VC/PE-backed partners through to the largest publically traded companies in the Pharma Services sector.
