Head of Rare Cancers Franchise
Liftstream was retained to support this international biotechnology company recruit a highly experienced industry executive to spearhead a new oncology / haematology franchise focused on rare cancers. This role was initiated after the successful licensing of a key asset and the development of a corporate strategy which would continue to pursue therapeutic products in this area of the cancer market.
The combination of highly specialised therapeutics in haematology and oncology, biologics, and orphan indications required highly strategic candidate targeting. The role would combine a high need for working across the spheres of medical and commercial and required shortlisted candidates to demonstrate acute understanding of the therapeutic field as well as franchise leadership and building.
Liftstream executed a highly effective international search that delivered a range of high-calibre leadership options and was successful in negotiating the employment of a highly respected industry executive to lead this new and exciting oncology franchise.
