Relationships Are Our Business

SEMbio was launched during the economic meltdown of 2008. A grassroots startup, our founders hand-picked and trained a successful group of committed and loyal professionals. Today, our team is highly recommended by clients and candidates alike and known as the trusted and reliable source for relationship-based recruiting.

Highly Specialized - By Design

We’ve helped countless companies build their MSL and Field Medical Teams from inception, and expanded existing teams to full capacity for well-established companies. We’re intuitive and always operate with a sense of urgency without sacrificing protocol and process. It’s a culture born of our consultant-based approach as opposed to a sales based-approach.

Our highly respected team is well-known. SEMbio’s co-founder, Mary Morton, is a member of the recruiting industry’s most elite, and universally respected organization, The Pinnacle Society. This exclusive invitation-only membership is limited to a mere 75 peer-reviewed professionals.

Every SEMbio team member is CPC certified and required to maintain that certification. Our constant review of medical and scientific topics provide an effective understanding of our clients’ needs. With multiple business development managers, we’re scaled to handle multiple projects and each consultant works with both clients and candidates. We’re specialized by design with deep connections that allow our team to consistently predict industry-critical trends and adapt our resources for those we serve.

The SEMbio Team

It’s true that our business is based on ethics, knowledge, experience, and commitment. But, we’re also real people. We love dogs, concerts, sports, traveling, karaoke, trivia, horses, local live music, and spending time with our families. Much of our success can be attributed to the close-knit relationship our team has with one another. We work hard and spend time together outside of the office. Hopefully, our bios communicate not only our accomplishments and experience but who we are and our journey to where we are today.
