Success Stories

Innovative Hire

One of our clients was looking for innovative talent for an MD role in their R&D division. Our team took a unique approach to the position, and sourced a young medical doctor who did not have any experience within the pharmaceutical industry. By hiring outside the traditional talent pool, we were able to bring our client someone with fresh ideas and a balanced approach to new product development.

Orthopedic Company

A medium-sized orthopedic company had struggled to find suitable senior marketing candidates. Slate picked up the search on a retained basis as the other agencies had ceased in producing effective candidates. Slate created a market map with comprehensive feedback, in review, the client learned that they were perceived in the market as too passive. Together, Slate and the client created a narrative around the product pipeline and new leadership group that generated excitement about the position. In the end the client chose from a short list of 6 qualified candidates before making their best hire.
