“Laura Raynak’s extensive network and industry insight allowed us to hire our CEO in 90 days. She listens well and really understood our business and challenges before reaching out to targeted candidates. As a result, we only interviewed candidates that were on-target: high quality, had the skills we were looking for, and were a good fit to lead our current team.”
“I have known and worked with Laura Raynak since 2006. She is very responsive and well networked in the life sciences industry. She always keeps me updated even when we are not engaged on a search project. Laura has an outstanding reputation in the Bay Area. She builds strong relationships (which speaks to her broad network) and is dedicated to completing her searches with the highest level of candidates within the shortest amount of time. Laura has never sent me a candidate she has not personally screened. I consider Laura an extension of my team.”
– Lori Ciano Executive Vice President, Human Resources, Thoratec, Inc.
“I have known Laura for over 10 years. What makes Laura stand out is not just her incredible network of life sciences and med tech executives, or the fact that she’s worked with all different types of leadership teams. It’s the fact that she listens and really understands companies’ needs, and how key individuals can work with management and drive results. Laura has this ability – call it a sixth sense – to know what makes people tick and whether they are the right fit. That combination of skill and experience is what makes Laura such a valuable asset.”
– Kuo Tong is the CEO, Quorum Consulting

“Laura Raynak has successfully completed some of my tougher searches. She has a deep understanding of the life sciences, medical device and diagnostics businesses. While her database of candidates is impressive, it was her approach to each search that impressed me most. I have called upon her expertise in three of my previous companies and will continue to do so. Laura’s knowledge, high level of integrity and “get-it” factor are assets that I value and I highly recommend her to my colleagues regularly.
