“Kristi takes a truly personal approach to recruiting, getting to know both the organization and the people she is working with. She is able to connect with candidates who others may miss and identifies rising stars.”

-Jonathan Drachman, MD
(from work completed while at Seattle Genetics)

“Kristi Thomas and her team at BionetwRx are terrific.  Personable, professional, and persistent, Kristi has a knack for convincing very established and senior C-suite executives to make career moves to emerging companies.  She helped us land a very strong Chief Medical Officer and it has made a world of positive difference for OncoResponse.”

-Clifford Stocks, CEO, OncoResponse, Inc

“Kristi has helped me find two positions, even when I wasn’t looking! She is professional, informed, patient and caring. She understands that the best recruitment is when the needs of the company and the needs of the recruit mesh. Kristi only presented opportunities when there was a compelling reason, and did her best to help me understand the value and promise in any change. I would gladly work with Kristi again in any capacity.”

-Bob Lechleider, M.D.
Chief Medical Officer OncoResponse, Inc.

“I worked with Kristi and BionetwRx for several years on a series of challenging Medical Director positions. Her industry and related therapeutic area knowledge, network and ability to build rapport with passive candidates enabled us to fill these challenging searches. Kristi’s excellent communication skills, authenticity and ability to deliver made her a pleasure to work with. I recommend BionetwRx without hesitation.”

-Matt McSherry
Head of US Pharma R&D Recruiting, Genentech

“BionetwRx’s partnership was instrumental in assisting with the up scaling of a rapidly growing pharmaceutical company for key senior level oncology positions, predominately M.D.s. Kristi is a dedicated and driven professional, who along with her impressive knowledge of the pharmaceutical space and wealth of qualified candidates, ensures the best possible hire as quickly as possible. She operates with a high level of integrity and understands the importance of building relationships with hiring managers and internal Human Resources teams. Kristi is a pleasure to work with, coupled with her exceptional communication skills ensures that there are no misunderstandings throughout the recruitment process. She is committed to establishing and maintaining relationship with hiring managers and her candidates.”

-Julie Gibson
HR Director, San Francisco, Onyx Pharmaceuticals

“I had been in the process of exploring opportunities at two Bay Area biotechs, and I had not expected to look beyond those until I met Kristi. When I spoke to her, I was struck by her depth of understanding of and communication about the company, its culture, its scientific objectives, in addition to the specific objectives the leadership team had for the open position she wanted me to consider. Kristi was very convincing and made me look at an unexpected opportunity which I ended up taking largely due to her influence. Kristi has established a wide and deep network among biotech talent in the Bay Area, and she has recently successfully placed multiple candidates, including C-level and other senior-level candidates, in a number of local positions. I’ve asked her to help me in the search for clinical scientists because I want to leverage the quality network and relationships she has built and because I trust her to effectively communicate needs and objectives on both sides, which I think will be instrumental in identifying best fits for my team.”

-Bridget O’Keeffe
PhD, Sr. Director, Clinical Development, Nektar Therapeutics

“I have worked with Kristi for many years, both as a candidate and hiring manager; she is tenacious in tracking down and following candidates through the pre-hire and hiring process, and diligent in her research of the companies, their products, and staff. Kristi makes a genuine effort to get to know the hiring managers and company culture as well as the pipeline. She remains engaged throughout the hiring process and is conscientious in following up with both sides throughout the interview and hiring process, and with hiring managers and successful candidates in post following their appointments. I enjoy working with Kristi and BionetwRx and recommend her services unhesitatingly.”

-Richard Bryce, MD
SVP, Clinical R&D, Puma Biotechnology

“I consider my relationship with Kristi invaluable. Not only did she guide me through the interview and offer processes with fine detail, but she also has a wealth of knowledge about the Clinical and Medical Affairs sector of the industry such that she was able to provide me with sound career advice. And thanks in large part to Kristi, I now have a job with a top biotech company, and I couldn’t be happier.”
