“I have known Phil Nachman for many years and consider him one of the top recruiters in the medical device field. Whether I am looking for a high quality candidate as a hiring manager or personal career advice in general, Phil has always delivered. I highly recommend Phil as a leader in his profession without reservation.”Christopher Barron
“I have to thank Phil for being the springboard of my career. He is a superb recruiter with ethics and honesty. Phil placed me from Thoratec to CryoCath (Montreal) in 2005 as the VP of Product Development. Four years later, I had been promoted to VP of Product Development, Operations, Technical Support and Field Service. In November 2009, Medtronic purchased Cryocath, giving me the opportunity to cash-out my options and more, which enabled me to start my own ventures. Phil is far more than a headhunter, he also acted as a career coach for many years. Phil is the reason why I now drive a Maserati to my own place of business (still in Medical Devices).”Olivier Bataille
“I have worked with Phil for a long time and consider him to be my go-to recruiter when I have a difficult medical device position to fill. His attention to detail, combined with his knowledge of the field, always yields multiple qualified candidates who are genuinely interested in my positions.”Dale Larson
I’m pleased to have been professionally associated with Phil for over 10 years, on both sides of the desk. He is an excellent listener focusing on his client’s needs. The candidates he presents, from his vast network, are on target and I have hired a number of engineers through his services.
I have found Phil to be professional, discrete, responsive, persistent, trustworthy and very conversant in the field. I highly recommend Phil Nachman; when I need to hire talent, he is my resource of first choice.Jerry Jennings
“Phil is a terrific recruiter. He knows the biomedical job market well, especially in the Greater Boston Area, and serves other areas too. He keeps current on new developments by attending conferences and the like. This understanding helps him determine in detail whether there is a good fit between a job seeker and potential employer. Phil helped me find a position in 2011. During the recruiting process, he helped me cast my resume so that all of my relevant experience would be clear to the employer. He was very responsive by phone and email, and helped negotiate the details of my hire from beginning to end, including my relocation. After my hire, he has followed up to make sure that everything is going well. Indeed everything is going great, which attests to his success. I recommend Phil most highly to both job seekers and employers.”Tom Ferree, Ph.D.
“I have worked with Phil for 12 years as both a hiring manager and a candidate. He is the most knowledgeable person in the area of professional staffing. He knows where to find the right candidate and only presents people that are qualified.”James Wilkie
“I have known Phil Nachman by reputation for many years, worked with him as a candidate five years ago when he introduced me to InfraReDx, and since then as a hiring manager in several management positions.
Phil has been a valuable partner for us as we navigate through a very challenging and difficult economy in a venture backed cardiac device company. I highly recommend him to anyone with an engineering background considering a new job in the medical device field, and to hiring managers within medical device companies.”Bob Silva
“In my roles as Chief Operating Officer and VP of R&D at two medical device companies I have relied on Nachman BioMedical when looking to hire key personnel. Over the past 15 years I have found that Phil Nachman conducts searches with an uncommon depth of understanding and interest in the medical business, and a strong commitment to satisfying our specific needs for talent. He asks the right questions of hiring managers to clarify and frame the job, and is very successful recruiting candidates with the most appropriate backgrounds for our requirements. Phil is someone I can trust to bring dedication, energy, and candor to the search process, and to deliver excellent results.”Kevin Librett
“I’ve known Phil for a number of years. In the past, he’s helped me find high caliber employees for my organization and has helped colleagues find new employment opportunities. Most recently Phil introduced me to Pluromed. Phil was a pleasure to work with and always professional. If you are looking to hire for your organization or for a new opportunity for yourself, I highly recommend you talk to Phil. He has an impressive knowledge of the biomedical industry and won’t waste your time with marginal candidates or opportunities.”Joe Traut
“I’ve hired Phil many times over the past several years to help recruit key hires. We have worked together on searches at companies in medical instrumentation and in vitro diagnostics, for candidates in engineering, assay development, quality assurance, and marketing. Phil’s knowledge of the industry is unparalleled. He takes the time to listen to the hiring managers and understand the company and position. I feel he becomes an extension of our company and trust him implicitly to work on our behalf. He’s a true professional!”Lisa Petralia
“Phil behaves like a professional match-maker in that he wants to make sure that both the employer and employee are not just satisfied, but pleased with all aspects of the resulting relationship. Phil helped me tune my resume to highlight the skills that the potential employer desired, but he didn’t try to force the fit. He made sure there was a good fit before he proposed me as a potential candidate. I would definitely seek Phil’s help to hire biomedical professionals, and I enthusiastically refer colleagues who are in search of a biomedical position to Phil.”Nancy Nunes
