CEO ‘Significant capital gain in the life sciences contract manufacturing space’


SALARY: £170K to £220K + bonus + attractive equity

With a hugely loyal customer base, our client is a contract development and manufacturing organisation (CDMO) based in the UK with a bias significantly towards manufacturing, supplying pharmaceutical businesses across the globe. The business is currently nearing deal completion with a driven and experienced UK based mid-market private equity investor with a track record of great results.

We are working with the investor to find an inspiring Chief Executive officer to lead a rapid growth trajectory through both a buy and build and organic growth strategy, over a typical 3-5 year period.

The challenge requires an experienced general manager, preferably at C-level already, with a background in operations and manufacturing, also with significant exposure to business strategy and commercial focus. Exposure to M&A, integration and private equity would all be advantageous but not essential. Essential however is someone who has seen significant business growth as either the facilitator or key influencer as part of a management team. A background in an SME business is also very key to this role, coupled with extensive experience in either CDMO or pharmaceutical manufacturing in one guise or another.
