Jason Hersh

Managing Partner


Professional Background

As one of the founders of Klein Hersh International (KHI), Jason Hersh has been instrumental in building KHI into one of the largest life science executive search firms in the world. During the last fifteen years with KHI, his leadership skills have been pivotal in developing KHI’s approach to the search business that sets them apart from the rest of the industry. KHI understands that their business goes beyond “search” and is really about building relationships. It’s this philosophy and ability to deliver that has allowed KHI to become one of the “go-to” brands in the life science field.

In addition to leading the Healthcare Services Group, Jason continues to oversee all pharmaceutical practice areas (Discovery, Clinical, Commercial). His continued success in placing C-level executives and others in high-level operational roles in Healthcare/Pharmaceutical service organizations and technology companies is a key contributor to KHI’s exceptional growth. Companies of all sizes – from early-stage venture-backed technology companies to some of the largest CROs and management consulting companies - lean on Jason’s team to help bring in their future leaders.
