President, Life Sciences Division
Having joined The Richmond Group USA back in 2001, Shawn has certainly experienced the ups and downs of the Biotechnology industry. Yet, even after all that time, he continues to record top performing results and receive nationally acclaimed awards.
Our work helps to save lives and cure diseases. How often have you heard a recruiter boast that statement? With every successful project and search, Shawn improves lives and the chances of continued life. Knowing that we truly can and do make a difference makes everything about this profession worthwhile and extraordinary.
“There is no other industry in the world that I can directly see the impact I make and the quality of my work. Within my field, I am saving lives and curing diseases. Typically, those quotes are heard from doctors. But, I am in the unique situation of directly influencing the success of an organization and their ability to do just that, save lives and cure diseases. Nothing is more rewarding than hearing the stories and accounts from the companies that realize how significant the right individual can be in any situation.” – Shawn Barley
