Toft Group Executive Search Named as one of the “Top 50 Healthcare & Life Sciences Search Firms” by Hunt Scanlon Media

Feb 22, 2017 – San Francisco, California: Toft Group, a global life sciences and healthcare executive recruiting firm, today announced it has been named a Top 50 Executive Search Firm in Healthcare and Life Sciences by Hunt Scanlon Media, the most widely referenced global news source in the human capital sector.

Hunt Scanlon has been ranking firms in various categories for nearly 30 years. This is the first year the news source has ranked firms in the Healthcare and Life Sciences sectors.

“Toft Group is honored to be recognized among the top executive search firms worldwide by an organization as prestigious as Hunt Scanlon,” commented Robin Toft, President & CEO of Toft Group. “Our success is attributed to our team of experienced search consultants, our commitment to delivering exceptional results and our collaborative network of partners, clients, and candidates who share the same passion for healthcare advancements and innovation.”

The complete list of search firms was published in the Healthcare and Life Sciences Recruiting Special Issue of the Hunt Scanlon Executive Search Review. Robin Toft is also highlighted as a sector expert in the feature article Life Sciences and Healthcare Search Firms Tap Outside Talent.

In the article, Toft discusses the shortage of executive talent available to effectively lead the industry through challenges and uncertainty, particularly in emerging companies that blend high-tech and biotech. This shortage is one of the reasons why companies, both inside and outside of life sciences, partner with Toft Group to fill C-level positions in a landscape where senior level executives who have leadership experience and a strong vision are critical.

“I am very proud of our search consultants’ ability to identify business leaders who create a competitive advantage and sustainable value for their companies,” added Toft.

Toft Group’s ranking as a Top 50 Executive Search Firm follows on the heels of the company being named a Top 150 Fastest Growing Private Company by the San Diego Business Journal. Toft Group has experienced double-digit revenue growth since it was established in 2010 and, to better support such growth, relocated their Northern California office to industry hotspot, the San Francisco Bay area and recently expanded its executive leadership team. These strategic decisions enhance Toft Group’s ability to support its entrepreneurial, rapidly growing client base in northern California, as well as improve access to outstanding talent for its executive search services worldwide.
