The Hennessy Group announced its partnership with Shanghai-based executive search firm Norland Associates, Ltd., to extend life sciences executive search services to East Asia markets.

“Our clients in the life sciences industry have seen incredible growth over the past few years,” said Bob Hennessy, CEO and founder of The Hennessy Group. “We felt the time was right to boost our efforts further in the Pacific Rim and Asia Pacific markets, where the need for talent in the CDMO, pharmaceuticals and other life sciences sectors is very high,”

“Partnering with a boutique executive search firm similar to our own lets us make deeper connections with clients and candidates in geographic markets outside of North America and Europe. While we’ve never shied away from placing talent in markets like South Korea, for example, Norland’s assistance will help us deliver the leadership talent our clients are seeking even faster and more effectively,” continued Hennessy. The Hennessy Group will perform a reciprocal function in the United States for Norland.

Since Norland Associates, Ltd. began operating as an executive search firm in 2010, it has worked on more than 1,300 projects. In 2018 alone, Norland Associates’ 12 recruiters successfully completed more than 130 placements.

Over the past 30 years, The Hennessy Group has developed industry-wide connections with professionals and companies in pharmaceuticals, life sciences startups, specialty pharma, orphan drugs, and more.
