Industry Experience

When you work with Herring Partners you are investing in a wealth of industry knowledge and experience forged over four decades.

For the last two decades we have successfully provided senior-level executive search services to the life science sectors. This experience has encompassed working with multinational concerns, start-up businesses and just about all types and size of company in between.

The client base includes British, Irish, German, Swiss, French, Belgian, Dutch, Swedish, Anglo-Chinese, Indian, Canadian, Japanese and US life science companies. Our searches have involved the whole of Europe, the Americas, Australia, Asia and parts of India and the Middle East.

Prior to his career in Executive Search, our Founder, Managing Director and Principal Consultant, Maurice Herring, worked as a Sales Director for international companies supplying hi-tech capital equipment to industry, including the life science sector. He gained experience of privately-owned and multinational PLC businesses. Maurice’s early sales career was in the packaging machinery industry for a UK subsidiary of a German business, working closely with a French sister company. His formative years were spent building knowledge in a variety of engineering areas, including Defence, Nuclear, Mechanical Handling and Aerospace.

With the benefit of experience in a variety of international businesses we are acutely aware of the challenges faced when moving senior people between differing environments. Many issues can have an impact on a successful placement, such as company culture, infrastructure, scale and complexity; language capabilities; country customs and idiosyncrasies; relocation and family.
