Chaseman Global Talent Recruitment Company Opens U.S. Regional Office at NCBiotech Landing Pad
Chaseman Global, an international life sciences executive recruitment company, opened a regional office today at the North Carolina Biotechnology Center’s Landing Pad rental office site.
The company, which specializes in attracting highly qualified employees for the agriculture and food technology industries, said this is its second U.S. regional office.
Chief Executive Officer Richard Connolly said the company was pleased to be in North Carolina. “Our clients in the Research Triangle have always been at the forefront of innovation and we believe establishing a physical presence within the Triangle better equips us to support their talent needs and growth goals,” he said.
“We look forward to being an active member of the Research Triangle community and contributing to its growth and success,” added Phil Bills, chief commercial officer for Chaseman Global.
Connolly, who operates out of Sarasota, Fla., will continue to be the primary point of contact for both offices. The company also has regional offices in Canada, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Australia
