(PRWEB) November 17, 2015
National recruitment firm Slone Partners announced today that Mara Aspinall, Executive Chairman of GenePeeks and Rencarex, Kathryn Griffin, Owner & Principal of Ariel Consulting LLC, and Kyle Wilson, Partner with BroadOak Capital Partners, are new appointments to its Advisory Board.
Aspinall, Griffin, and Wilson join the Advisory Board as rapid changes in diagnostics technology reshape the industry and the job market. Due in large part to the projected increase in next generation sequencing (NGS) over the next decade, hiring demands among companies in the diagnostics, life science tools, healthcare information technology, and laboratory testing industries are intensifying.
“Our client portfolio includes many different types of organizations that undertake important research using innovative tools and platforms like NGS, which is one of the most rapidly growing categories,” said Adam Slone, CEO of Slone Partners. “By expanding our Advisory Board expertise with veterans of the diagnostics industry, as well as the executive search and investment banking arenas, we benefit from specialized insights so our clients in this fast-growing space grow strategically, rather than reactively.”
“As our industry expands and more institutions undertake important research using NGS, the most successful firms will be those that proactively plan their hiring. The importance of an intelligent talent acquisition strategy cannot be overstated,” said Mara Aspinall, upon her appointment to the Slone Partners Advisory Board.
Mara Aspinall is Executive Chairman of GenePeeks, a company at the intersection of genetic testing, personalized medicine and computational genomics and a member of the board of directors of Castle Biosciences and Blue Cross Blue Shield Arizona. She is also a co-founder of the School of Biomedical Diagnostics at Arizona State University.
Kathryn Griffin brings over 25 years of recruiting, change management and executive transitions experience with firms ranging from Accenture to Korn/Ferry International. She is Owner & Principal of Ariel Consulting LLC, which serves Fortune 500, mid-cap and private equity companies in executive search and executive transitions.
Kyle Wilson currently serves as a Partner with BroadOak Capital Partners. Based in Bethesda, MD, and San Francisco, CA, BroadOak provides investment banking advisory services and growth capital investments to innovative companies within the life science research tools and diagnostic markets.
Aspinall, Griffin, and Wilson join Dr. Vijay Aggarwal, PhD, managing partner of The Channel Group; and Bijan Salehizadeh, MD, co-founder and managing director at NaviMed Capital, on the Advisory Board.
