FORT LEE, N.J., August 1, 2006 - The Stevenson Group, a leading pharmaceutical and healthcare specialist executive search firm with nearly 30 years' experience meeting the leadership needs of Fortune 100 companies across multiple industries and management functions, announced today that it promoted two key contributors who helped the firm grow its professional fee revenue by a record 160% over the past 12 months.
Stephen M. Steinman, president and C.E.O. of The Stevenson Group and founder of the firm known widely for the quality of its executive talent research and its two-year placement guarantee, announced the promotion of vice president and principal Jennifer Kay of South Orange, N.J., to senior vice president and managing principal. He also announced the promotion of senior consultant Cecelia Bistrim of Oradell, N.J., to vice president of the firm.
"These promotions acknowledge both the respect and trust that Jennifer and Cecelia have worked hard to earn with our large, multinational clients in the pharmaceutical and healthcare markets, but also their individual contributions that have fueled the growth of The Stevenson Group, in revenue and reputation," Steinman said.
"With our firm's value proposition staked to our practice of handing over the research from every search assignment to our clients as well as our two-year placement guarantee, we simply wouldn't be in business and growing at a record pace without the consistent, exceptional performance that clients have come to expect from Jennifer and Cecelia," he added.
Jennifer Kay joined The Stevenson Group in 1998 after spending several years in both marketing and organization development roles at American Express. She holds an M.B.A. with emphasis in marketing and information systems from the Stern School of Business at N.Y.U. and an undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan. She recruits executives for pharmaceutical, biotech, high-tech, and consulting firms.
Cecelia Bistrim joined The Stevenson Group in early 2000 after nearly a five-year stint directing all research programs for the New York/New Jersey Metropolitan office and working directly for the president of Boyden, Inc., a large international executive search firm. She previously spent nine years with a regional management consulting firm in which she focused on European clientele, identifying top management for the U.S. subsidiaries of European companies. She holds a bachelor's degree from Brooklyn College.
Based in Fort Lee, N.J., The Stevenson Group is a leading retained executive search firm. Industry specialists in the pharmaceutical/biotech community, the firm works across functional disciplines and has successfully filled a wide variety of senior level positions over its 28-year history.
