Mary Arcana, President and Founder of Biotecher, has 15 years of biotech industry recruiting experience. She has earned a reputation for swift delivery of difficult-to-find scientific and managerial talent. Her diverse clientele includes drug development and medical device companies and ranges from early biotech startups to global pharmaceutical-industry leaders. Prior to starting Biotecher, Mary served for six years at MRBiotech, a Bay Area biotechnology office of Management Recruiters International where she rapidly advanced to Director of Research and Development responsible for all recruitment and business development efforts within that sector. This early concentration in R&D gave her a keen insight into the science and the business of product lifecycles as well as a big-picture perspective of the biotech industry that has benefited her many clients over the years. Mary founded Biotecher in 2004 to expand her talent-delivery services beyond R&D to encompass and facilitate hires all along the product development pathway from early discovery, beyond preclinical and clinical development, to include commercialization and post-commercialization. Prior to her tenure in biotech, Mary held leadership positions in a number of business sectors including IT, media relations, restaurant-ownership, and the film industry. During the course of her eclectic career she successfully built, managed, and mentored multi-disciplined teams of up to 40 people. Mary's experience as a business leader and hiring manager and broad exposure to diverse business models and practices enables her to quickly grasp complex employer needs and consistently deliver rare talent within aggressive deadlines.
