While Many More County Businesses Close, Beacon Hill Life Sciences Expands Staffing and Solutions in Northern New Jersey

September 23rd, 2020

In support of the booming pharmaceutical industry in the Tristate area, Beacon Hill Life Sciences officially launched a Life Sciences office in Northern New Jersey. Beacon Hill Life Sciences operates across the broad Biotech, Gene Therapy, Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, Diagnostics, Clinical Research Outsourcing, Food, Beverage, Consumer Products, Healthcare, and Health and Insurance sectors delivering professional talent through integrated staffing solutions and Statement of Work Services.

The launch of the New Jersey office comes at a pivotal time for the life sciences industry. The industry is showing signs of strength in both public markets and private investment, despite the economic downturn caused by COVID-19, according to a recent article by RSM, the leading U.S. provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on middle market. While some shifts are fairly obvious – the increase in production of personal protective equipment, the development of test kits, and the development of a vaccine – other shifts in the market are more opaque. For example, RSM reported social distancing measures and reallocation of resources towards a COVID-19 vaccine have led to a slowdown in clinical trials for non-COVID related therapies.

Leading Beacon Hill Life Sciences New Jersey is Division Director Paul Manzo. Mr. Manzo joined Beacon Hill in 2018 as the Business Development Manager for the company’s Life Sciences team in Boston. He has more than 20 years’ experience within the staffing industry, possessing recruiting, business development and leadership experience within the healthcare delivery and pharmaceutical sectors. Prior to joining Beacon Hill, Mr. Manzo was a consistent top-performing account executive and Director of Sales with a national pharmaceutical consulting firm.

“Since its inception, our Life Sciences division has been supporting clients here in the Tristate area, and I am very excited to be expanding our footprint in the region,” stated Mr. Manzo. “I was born and raised in New Jersey, and for years I have worked with clients in this area - not only within Life Sciences, but also in the healthcare sector – so I understand this market. I’m also very happy to have an experienced staffing account executive, Chris Lee, partnering with me on this expansion. Beacon Hill Life Sciences brings an experienced team with a strong depth of knowledge to help Life Science organizations in all stages of the drug development lifecycle.”

We have worked with some of the area’s most prominent companies in New Jersey and New York and our National Teams have continued to support them virtually. With the launch of this Parsippany-based team, we are positioned to provide even more support to our clients. We are actively hiring for clients in Bridgewater, Princeton, and New York City. Per the HealthCare Institute of New Jersey, almost $100 billion of economic output is generated by the state’s biopharmaceutical and medical technologies sectors, as well as over 84,000 jobs. The Institute estimates that over 10% of all jobs in New Jersey relate directly or indirectly to the biopharmaceutical and medical device sectors.

“Although the New Jersey officially launched this week, a Tristate office has always been in our growth strategy plan. Paul has been working toward this initiative since he started with Beacon Hill in 2018,” remarked Liz Davies, Regional Director of Beacon Hill Life Sciences. “Paul brings both the regional knowledge and the industry experience needed to immediately support our Pharmaceutical, Biotech, and Medical Device clients in the New York/New Jersey markets. With the support of our National Recruitment model, Paul has already made an impact implementing project-based Regulatory Strategy, Pharmacovigilance, and Quality initiatives with his clients. We look forward to expanding that footprint to include our core capabilities of Clinical Operations and Pre-Clinical Research.”
