Healthcare & Life Sciences

Since 1979, Bedford Group has successfully provided world class Executive Search and Talent Advisory Services across the broad spectrum of global Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations. This includes everything from multinational pharmaceutical and medical device corporations, to start-ups and fast growing biotechnology companies.
Our team of experts has a deep understanding of the current and emerging trends in the global sector with deep capabilities supporting the North American marketplace, with strong emphasis in Toronto, Boston, New Jersey, New York, Vancouver and Montreal.
With government pricing pressure, care model evolution, the speed of intersection between IT and healthcare services and convergence happening across formerly disparate healthcare sectors, make this a rapidly changing industry. As such, this dynamic sector requires exceptional leadership capabilities and a track record of results to ensure continued success.
Bedford Group’s consultants recognize these key trends and apply an unparalleled executive search process that assesses candidates against the four essential dimensions of fit: Culture, Leadership, Performance, and Team. By applying this process, we are uniquely positioned to find creative, versatile and experienced leaders who will deliver value, provide clear vision and develop the right solutions to advance your Life Sciences business.
