An Entrepreneur’s Perspective Heidrick & Struggles Partner Emeritus Bill Matthews shares his best advice for recruiting world class talent

WE SERVE ENTREPRENEURS AS VALUED THOUGHT PARTNERS.

We believe coupling talented people with disruptive technologies is a formula for success. We focus on therapeutic medical devices and healthcare diagnostics, information technology, and services platforms that are “with the grain” of healthcare economics – improving patient outcomes while decreasing costs – in markets with significant unmet clinical needs. We pursue opportunities with mitigated technical, regulatory, and financial risk profiles where we can add value beyond our capital in navigating complex operational and regulatory hurdles, accelerating organic revenue growth and margin expansion, and building profitable businesses with a compelling market and patient advantage.
