Appointment Expands Life Sciences Team for Horton International

Global executive search and interim management specialist, Horton International UK, is delighted to announce the appointment of Emma Whittle as Partner within its Global Healthcare arm.

Emma brings to the team over 20 years’ experience within search and talent acquisition, built across a range of industries and with significant emphasis on hiring for the life sciences sectors, including technology digitalisation, medical technology and diagnostics.

Commenting on her appointment, Emma said: “This is an incredibly important time to be supporting the life sciences arena. R&D activity has understandably received huge attention during the global pandemic and certain areas relating to infectious diseases are experiencing a form of “industrial revolution”.

“I feel privileged to be in a position to help access talent that enables these sectors to cope with the scale and growth that will lead to society being able to return to some future sense of normality.”

Dafydd Wright, Managing Partner, said: “I am thrilled to have Emma join the team and I know her knowledge and passion will ensure continued success in supporting our customers across the biotechnology and broader life sciences sectors.

Emma’s experience in fast tracking senior hiring and skilled interim management services, coupled with her extensive track record across the life sciences, engineering and IT industries, are set to have a significant influence on the company as we continue to expand our delivery capabilities.”
