North America’s Leading Executive Search Firm For Life Sciences, Diagnostics, Precision Medicine, and Laboratory Testing Companies Seizes Growth Opportunity

Slone Partners, North America’s premier healthcare industry-focused executive search firm, today announced the creation of a corporate Western Division and related expansion activities throughout California. This strategic initiative, overseen by Slone Partners President Tara Kochis-Stach, better allows the Company to service dozens of current California-based clients, develop relationships with next generation startups, and capitalize on the exponential growth The Golden State continuously demonstrates as a healthcare innovation hub. The expansion necessitates the relocation of Company senior personnel and is designed to ignite Company activities in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and San Francisco – cities and counties which collectively comprise a commanding bulk of the healthcare industry market in the United States.

The move represents a culmination of Slone Partners’ historically successful client talent searches conducted in California since 2000 and establishes a new division-based corporate structure and geo-presence led by CEO Leslie Loveless, Founder Adam Slone, and President Tara Kochis-Stach, supported by dozens of executive recruiters and support staff. Slone Partners clients range from private equity and venture capitalist firms with healthcare portfolios to the most respected names in the healthcare industry.
Northern and Southern California are home to hundreds of life sciences, diagnostics, precision medicine, laboratory testing, and healthcare information technology service providers.

Together, these teams collectively develop advances in next generation diagnostics, precision medicine, and biopharmaceuticals, plus new technologies that streamline and power the healthcare industry.
