Founder and consultant Ariane des Tombe has studied Biology at the University of Utrecht from 1988 to 1994 with a medical specialisation. She received her PhD on heart failure at the Free University in Amsterdam in 1999.
Subsequently, she started as a CRA at Bayer in May 1999. After 2 years as a CRA, she set up a recruitment department at the Dutch CRO PharmaScope. This proved a success. Within a year, there were 16 seconded staff and a second recruiter was hired. After four years, the department consisted of 45 seconded staff and four consultants. In April 2005, PharmaScope was acquired by Quintiles. Ariane has subsequently worked on the integration and further development of the recruitment department at Quintiles. In 2008, Ariane switched to the Clinical Operations department within Quintiles, where she was the manager of a team of 12 CRAs.
The experience Ariane has gained up since 1999 makes her a full-fledged partner within the pharmaceutical industry. She seeks to build good and lasting relationships with her clients and candidates.
