Ready for a Move to Paris?


MEDIA RELEASE - Tuesday December 22nd 2020


Building on its specialist and patient-centered approach, Chase Partners LLC a Boston-based Life Science Executive Search firm is excited to announce the opening of a Paris, France office headed by Nick Hicks, responsible for the Company’s European Executive Search operations.

CEO, Jennifer Chase said, “Nick is the most qualified person out there to help spearhead our European operations with patient engagement now at a tipping point as it continues to drive change at all levels of the Life Science Industry. Leaders will need to be able to demonstrate both functional skills and their capacity to understand and then translate the patient voice into meaningful corporate strategy across the life cycle.”

Nick Hicks has developed deep expertise in building strategic partnerships between Life Sciences Companies and Patient Groups and related advocacy stakeholders that help guide research and access decisions by focusing on common interests. In doing so, he has gained a unique set of skills helping to maintain focus on patient needs and provide insight to innovative leaders in their drug development.

Some companies are already good at patient engagement while others lack the right skill mix at the senior level. The vision of Chase Partners is that all future senior hiring’s for which it is responsible will lead to the development of new treatments or services that use the patient voice for better-shared outcomes. Jennifer added, “Nick will help our clients make this transition.”
