Mary Arcana, President and Founder of Biotecher, has 20 years of biotechnology industry recruiting experience. She has earned a reputation for facilitating exceptionally challenging talent searches through quick delivery of difficult-to-find scientific and managerial talent. Her diverse clientele includes drug development and medical device companies from early start-ups to global industry leaders. Mary previously served at MRBiotech, a Bay Area office of Management Recruiters International, where she rapidly advanced to Director of Research and Development responsible for business development and recruitment efforts within that sector. Her early concentration in R&D gave her keen insight into the science and business of biotech and a big-picture perspective of the industry as a whole, insights that have benefited her many clients over the years. She founded Biotecher in 2004 to expand her recruitment services to include the spectrum of technical and leadership roles across the product development pathway: from early discovery through research & development, preclinical, clinical, product-launch, and commercialization stages. Prior to her tenure in biotech, Mary held leadership roles in multiple industries that included IT, media relations, restaurant-ownership, and film. During her eclectic career, she led one of the first Internet research companies and built cross-disciplined teams of up to 40 people. A biotech-savvy business leader, public speaker, and media spokesperson with broad exposure to diverse business models, she can quickly grasp employer needs and deliver rare talent within aggressive deadlines.
