Steve Smith

Steve joined Next Phase in August 2018, bringing with him over 10 years of previous experience in Life Science recruitment. Steve is passionate about Rare Diseases and Cell & Gene Therapy and specialises in the appointment of Boards and C-Suite executives within innovative organisations in these niches, from start-ups to established multi-national businesses.

Steve attends and participates in conferences across the UK and Europe, engaging with professionals across the Orphan Drug and Advanced Therapies (ATMP) development sectors. With an extensive background in executive search, Steve has an extremely professional and consultative approach and enjoys building strong relationships with people across these exciting and ever-changing industries.

Steve also leads Next Phase's unique initiative to help Biotech businesses to secure funding from multiple investors of interest, by building "Raise Teams" - high-calibre teams of investor-attracting industry executives, who are so bought into our clients that they are willing to operate on an equity-only basis. 

Steve has written a series of articles, including Tackling the Talent Gap in Cell and Gene Therapy.
