i-Pharm Consulting Launches in San Diego, USA!

i-Pharm Consulting is thrilled to welcome two outstanding hires to the i-Pharm USA Team, officially marking our launch in San Diego, California!

Liza Farida joins as Business Manager running our Medical Devices QA/RA Contract Team. Liza has 6 years’ contract recruitment experience, most recently leading a Med Devices Contract Team in San Diego. Liza is our first hire in the Medical Devices market in the US as well as our first West Coast Contract Recruitment hire, and her style is a perfect fit for being the first on the ground and setting the tone for the future environment.

Millie Tompkins joins us and Liza in the Medical Devices Team as Practice Lead, after almost 3 years in San Diego running a Medical Devices QA/RA Permanent team. In total she has worked in recruitment for 6 years and together with Liza will be looking to launch this new side of i-Pharm’s US business in San Diego. Millie is a Med Tech expert and very passionate about challenging the industry on how best to scale teams and build offices. 

The opportunity to launch the Med Devices team with two outstanding hires is really exciting, especially in San Diego, which is one of the key Med Devices hubs in the US.

“The opportunity to launch the Med Devices team with two outstanding hires is really exciting, especially in San Diego, which is one of the key Med Devices hubs in the US. It’s a market we have significant experience with in Europe, so when Liza and Millie were in discussions, we did everything we could to attract them both and double down from day one. Both bring the market experience with them and more importantly they were seen as true cultural adds. We believe in building a highly successful operation around them that will give them both the chance to push their careers to the next level.”

Since our inception in London, UK in 2008, i-Pharm’s independent, expert, and ethical approach to procuring talent has helped power the pioneering progress made by Pharmaceutical, Biotech and MedTech companies around the world. ‚Äč

Following successful launches in Germany and Australia, we arrived in the USA in 2017 and have seen exponential growth, starting with our New York Hub in 2018, followed by Charlotte, North Carolina in 2020 and Los Angeles in 2021.

California has more Biotechs and Medical Device companies than any other state in America. In 2020 it accounted for almost 1.4 million jobs and generated $131 billion of revenue. Cementing a presence on the USA’s West Coast not only gives us further opportunity to assist in the staffing of these firms but also allows us to service our existing clients on a more national and/or global scale.
