Fortune Group International is a widely respected executive search organization comprised of sixty-five offices and over 200 professional consultants throughout the United States. We work extensively in the Clinical Research, Biotechnology, and Pharmaceutical Industries with a total of twenty-two offices actively participating in these areas. Several of our offices conduct searches on an international basis as well, including our office in Warminster, Pennsylvania.

In addition, we have structured several strategic alliances with organizations that actively recruit in the Clinical Research, Biotechnology, and Pharmaceutical fields, both on a domestic and international basis.

Our objective is to develop a long-term relationship with your firm to provide you with the most professionally qualified individuals for positions you seek to fill. Our belief is that we can empower your corporation’s ability to execute directives through the recruitment of top performing individuals who will assume leadership roles in your firm rather than acting simply as a functionary. As you know, the success of your corporation will be determined ultimately by the actions and caliber of your leaders. We are uniquely equipped to identify those individuals, with a sense of urgency, through the expansive network of the Fortune organization.

At the cornerstone of our philosophy is our commitment to excellence in our dealings with your organization and other parties with whom we have contact. In doing so, we place a premium on maintaining only the most ethical and professional business practices. As ambassadors for your organization, all representations and conversations with you or potential candidates are regarded as privileged information.

Each of our sixty-five offices is networked by a proprietary on-line search system which allows us to communicate on a real time basis with search requirements and qualified candidates. This system identifies more than 25% of the candidates and client assignments that ultimately result in a successful search completion.

All of our staff look forward to working with you and developing a long term, mutually beneficial relationship.
