“I worked with Harold Thiers in 2006-2007 to find a scientist for a replacement position in a biologics development group, which is part of a larger biopharmaceutical company. Based on the job description we provided and some follow-up conversation, Harold located an excellent candidate, whom we ultimately hired. He demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the technical and managerial requirements for the position vis a vis the qualities we were seeking in a candidate, and I would highly recommend his services as a recruiter in the drug development industry.” - Mike Nedved Assistant Director Analytical Development hired Harold as a Recruiter in 2006

“Harold is a genuine ally for opportunity seekers in the biotech/pharma arena. He knows the industry exceedingly well, and keeps up diligently on movement and trends within it. He's clearly quality-driven, highly reliable, meticulous in his research and preparation, and delivers personalized attention with great integrity. In placing me at Amgen in 2006, Harold provided useful insights into the company, it's structure, internal landscape, and key employees relevant to my area. Interview preparation was unbelievably thorough, right down to backgrounders on each individual on the agenda. Harold was always in close contact, assisted in negotiations, and generally an invaluable information resource. I can confidently recommend Harold as a first-rate placement expert and would certainly work with him again.”

“Harold Thiers had been in touch with me during the restructuring of my previous firm in 2004. He had brought to my attention several opportunities at that time but it was not until a year later that he brought me the opportunity at Shire HGT. Harold was quite sensitive to my family needs and guided us through the entire process. He prepared me for the interviews and answered our questions. He addressed concerns about relocation. Harold had a very good understanding of the technical needs of the position and found a good match in me for Shire HGT. I'm very happy with my collaboration with Harold and look forward to working with him in the future.”

“In Biotech Research IT, identifying and recruiting Informatics talent with the combination of advanced science and IT skills is extremely difficult. Harold immediately brought fully qualified candidates after just a phone conversation about our needs. Thus far, he has found, helped in negotiations, and delivered two R&D IT Site Directors and multiple R&D IT Scientists. I look forward to collaborating with Harold again.”

“I have worked with Harold in 2002, when I was looking for new job. This was my first transition going from a smaller Biotech company on the West Coast to a larger Pharmaceutical company on the East Coast of the US. He guided me through the whole process and helped me identify a company that worked for me and my family. He was always supportive and had an excellent insight in my field of work. Harold also asked me the necessary hard questions and decisions I had to face at each step of making the move. I tremendously enjoyed working with him and never regretted the move. I strongly recommend Harold as an outstanding headhunter.”
