Personalized Executive and Board Member Searches in the Life Sciences Industries
We measure our success by the quality of our candidates and their contributions to your organization.
Bente and her team spent a considerable amount of time interviewing our Board members and the Senior Management team to understand exactly what we were looking for. They put all their resources and energy into the search, learned the nuances of the position, and understood the culture we had established. With their knowledge of the industry, they presented a diverse slate of qualified candidates, provided timely reports and represented our company in a polished and professional manner. We have all been extremely pleased with the results of the search, which had an extremely successful outcome, and will use Bente and her team again. I have no reservations or qualifications in recommending Bente Hansen.
We have been working with Bente since we started the turnaround process at Arena in 2016. Early on, she understood the type of environment we were trying to build - the expectations we had. She has been an invaluable partner for us.
We chose Bente and her team to fill tricky positions for Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine – positions where we needed difficult to find skill sets. Their success in identifying super candidates showed their knowledge and connections in life science industry, research organizations and medicine. Our Institute is on the bleeding edge of implementing genomics in medicine and finding people with cross-over experience and capability is challenging. It took knowledge and tenacity by Bente Hansen and Associates. The folk they’ve found for us are making valuable contributions to our Institute.
I had the opportunity to work with Bente Hansen on several projects and I always had a very good experience. Her strong industry background and extensive network combined with a very ethical business approach are hard to match. Bente takes the time to conduct a deep research on the company, getting to really know the CEO, the board of directors and management team and understand the dynamics of the company and its culture. She is very persistent, never rushes to close a deal prematurely and never gives up, treating all the parties involved with respect and kindness. Her goal is to find the right fit and develop long term relationships. Her professionalism is exemplary and it’s always a pleasure to work with her and her team. I highly recommend Bente!
Bente was very receptive to our requests and needs and worked with me in a frequent and cooperative manner to help refine the candidates’ suitability. Her scientific background allowed her to hone in on the potential candidates’ technical skills and assess their capability very quickly. I have had nothing but positive experiences in the searches Bente has done for us and would recommend her services to anyone in the healthcare industry without reservation.
Twice Bente Hansen and Associates successfully identified candidates to join ScienceMedia’s Board of Directors. Bente quickly learned about ScienceMedia and the Board's needs. She connected with her extensive network and presented a handful of appropriate and exceptional candidates. Bente did not waste time with inappropriate candidates, and she enthusiastically and accurately represented us to the candidates. All Board searches have their own unique aspects, yet Bente understood ours and filled our needs. ScienceMedia is much stronger thanks to Bente.
