Mary Arcana, President has 20 years of biotech recruiting experience during which she’s developed a reputation as a skilled staffing troubleshooter able to resolve particularly tough talent searches. Her diverse clientele has included drug development, medical device, and diagnostic companies ranging from early startups to global leaders. She previously served at MRBiotech where she rapidly advanced to Director of Research & Development responsible for all business development and recruitment activities within that sector. Her initial upstream concentration allowed her to gain keen insight into the science and business of product lifecycles and led to a big-picture perspective of the industry as a whole. She founded Biotecher in 2004 to broaden her recruitment services beyond the confines of R&D to encompass skillsets all along the product development pathway from early discovery through preclinical, clinical, product-launch, and commercial stages. Prior to her tenure in the biotech industry, Mary held leadership roles in information technology, media relations, restaurant ownership, and the film industry. Her eclectic career included leading one of the first internet research companies and building multi-disciplined teams of up to 40 people. As a cross-industry business leader, public speaker, and media spokesperson with broad exposure to diverse business models, Mary has the ability to quickly grasp employer needs, collaborate efficiently with busy hiring authorities, and consistently deliver difficult-to-find scientific and managerial talent to help clients achieve company goals.
