Proclinical broadens its network of offices by opening in Munich
Global life sciences staffing company, Proclinical, continues to widen their European footprint by putting boots on the ground in the City of Munich, Germany. After successfully launching in Frankfurt in 2019, this will be the second office in Germany for Proclinical and demonstrates the company’s commitment to growth in the DACH region which is a hotbed for life sciences innovation and research.
Part of the Acacium Group, Proclinical is setting up in Munich to meet the strong demand from biotechnology companies who are looking to expand their operations into Germany and Europe. According to Munich Business, 21% of German biotechnology companies work in the Munich Metropolitan Region, employing over 33,000 professionals and a quarter of all national clinical studies are carried out there. Impressive growth for the region, has meant the number of biotechnology jobs in Munich has doubled in the last decade, meaning companies are increasingly looking for support from staffing providers, like Proclinical.
Heading up the Munich office will be Associate Director, Max Slevogt, who joined the company earlier this year. Max Slevogt brings a wealth of experience in commercial headhunting and providing tailored recruitment solutions for pharmaceutical and biotech companies in central Europe, and is focussed on scaling up the Munich team. Max Slevogt commented, “With established biotechnology innovation and start-up centres (IZB), high-tech laboratories and a high number of German headquarters of pharmaceutical companies, Munich is very attractive for life science companies looking to establish a presence in the DACH region and we are seeing high demand from our partners looking to expand their operations there. To make it as easy as possible for life science companies to enter the Bavarian market, our diverse team of German language speakers are on the pulse with the local market nuances and will be able to work more collaboratively with our partners to establish their hiring needs and challenges”.
Proclinical’s Head of DACH, Hutan Fatemi commented, “After seeing the success of our Frankfurt base, we are extremely excited to see what new opportunities our Munich presence will bring. From our new office, in the heart of Isartor, we will be able to work more closely with our clients to find them the right life science professionals for their teams and equally help our candidates to further their careers. This is just the beginning for our growth plans in the DACH region and we look forward to further adding to our network of offices in the near future”.
