"I have known Chemical Search for many years and had the distinct pleasure of securing a Director level role through them. Moving from a large secure environment to a fledgling, VC-backed enterprise was a big step for me and I greatly valued their support, insight and skills at negotiating both parties to a successful outcome. They acted tirelessly, professionally and demonstrated a deep understanding of the challenges I would face in my new role. I am truly delighted I made the move and thank CSI and the team for making it happen."
