A Philadelphia area CRO had just been acquired by Private Equity at the beginning of 2022. Their new ownership group put a lot of investment into the company and tasked the organization to grow by 50% by the end of 2023.
The company had grown slow and steady over the previous 2 decades and didn’t have an internal talent acquisition department. They needed to hire for 35 positions over 6 months, while staying focused on critical R&D projects supporting their ever-growing clientele.
The team at GTS Scientific had previously supported this Private Equity firm in recruiting for other portfolio companies, so it was a good match to step in here as well.
