Harry Leider
Chief Medical Officer and EVP

I have had the great pleasure of working with Cristian over the last year, and I have found him to be a remarkable healthcare recruiter and consultant. He has an excellent view of the emerging opportunities in digital health and maintains a broad network of contacts across the industry. He consistently takes a personal interest in looking for opportunities to connect individuals with firms that can benefit from their skills and experiences. Cristian’s level of engagement and follow-up played a key role in my obtaining a role with an exciting digital health company. I recommend him most highly due to his knowledge, broad network, and strong work ethic - and his ability to navigate this very dynamic healthcare space to the benefit of his corporate clients and potential executive recruits.
