Shawn Barley & TRG Life Sciences Complete Successful Search

(Richmond, VA) June 1, 2014 – The Life Sciences Division of The Richmond Group is pleased to announce the successful completion of a Senior Regulatory Associate search. Our client, a rapidly growing medical device manufacturer was looking for an individual that could help them with their 510(k) submissions for their cutting-edge portfolio of spinal implants.

The challenge of this search was chiefly the location of our client: we could find a plethora of candidates that fit the success profile, but very few candidates that either were interested in the local market or wanted to move to the area.

Fortunately, Shawn reached out to a candidate that wasn’t initially looking but had extensive experience in 510(k) submissions to the FDA as well as international submission expertise. By being patient and persistent, we discovered that while she enjoyed her job at her current employer, the commute to and from work was really wearing her down. Moreover, our opportunity gave her the chance to make more of an impact than she was currently and cut her commute down significantly which would vastly improve her quality of life.  We presented her within days of taking on the search, and it was love at first sight for both parties: an offer was presented and accepted. Mission accomplished all within 30 days!

Should you desire additional information about this successful search or about our firm please contact Shawn Barley, the President of our Life Sciences Division at 804-404-2849 or email Shawn at
