Molly works closely with Healthcare Venture Capital and Private Equity funds along with Biopharmaceutical, Medical Technology, and Digital Health portfolio companies in landing senior-level talent. She has more than 20 years of executive search leadership experience within big box and boutique search firms, recruiting Investment Professionals and Senior Operating Leaders for a wide range of emerging and established life sciences companies.
Her clients on the investment side have included Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) funds, public and private investment vehicles, global health, and impact investment funds. She has completed searches for Partners of several first-time investment funds and has a passion for “diving deep” to identify and assess the requisite leadership competencies in order to be successful in this type of start-up operating environment.
On the portfolio side, Molly has recruited senior leaders for emerging companies, and she has also worked with large cap, public life sciences clients that are looking to move the needle and/or drive transformation change with an impactful hire. Her searches on the operating side include Board Members, CEOs, CFOs, CQOs, CMOs, and other functional heads in Manufacturing, Regulatory, and General Management.
Molly is an avid supporter of the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, which was founded by Leonard Lauder and Howard Fillit, MD. The ADDF is the only philanthropy solely focused on accelerating the development of drugs to prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer's disease, related dementias, and cognitive aging.
In addition, Molly is a strong proponent for delivering an inclusive slate of diverse candidates to her clients, and as part of this personal and professional charter, she volunteers as a business mentor for C-Sweetener, a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to mentoring female leaders on the path to the healthcare C-Suite and the Board room.
Molly earned her BA degree from the Journalism School at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and lives with her daughter in Newton, MA.
