Fios Genomics – Relationship length 2015 – Present
Fios is a Bioinformatics Contract Research Organisation based in Edinburgh. We engaged with them through Sarah Lynagh, the CEO of the business in 2015.
The Purpose of our Engagement
Business Development Activity had largely been successfully executed through the CEO so an expansion of the BD team would facilitate the CEO’s value add in broader business operations that had become pressing as the organisation grew.
Assignments and Projects
Our initial brief was to appoint a Senior Business Development Manager technically able to sell the concept of outsourced bioinformatics research projects in the US. The assignment was successfully delivered and led to the long-term engagement of Kleboe Jardine to deliver in areas such as Bioinformaticians / Senior Bioinformaticians / Project Managers / Marketing / Dev Ops and several further Business Development roles.
Staff numbers have grown from 8 to 55 with revenue growth to match. The business is now operating a joint venture with Charles River Laboratories.
