(Woodland, WA) – Recruiting Solutions Inc. announced that it is now an affiliate of MRINetwork®, one of the largest executive search and recruitment organizations in the world. Based in Woodland, WA, the firm is headed by owners and managing partners, Don L. Anderson and Linda Rutledge, specializing in placement of top health economics outcomes researchers (HEOR) for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries.
“Mr. Anderson brings to MRINetwork a wealth of knowledge in the high-powered world of biotechnology,” says MRINetwork Interim President Stuart Batchelor. “With his proven track record in driving profitable growth and developing successful sales management tactics, he will be a great asset to both our organization and to his clients, helping them deal with today’s pressing issues of employee attraction and retention.”
Prior to joining MRINetwork, Anderson was employed for eight years by Allergan Pharmaceuticals, where he achieved the number one ranking in his division for market share growth. He also developed and implemented a retention strategy that resulted in 100 percent retention of high-performing representatives over a three-year period. Anderson has additionally held sales management positions at Merck & Company and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals.
Linda Rutledge was previously employed as a contracts negotiator for the United States Air Force Space Systems Division and as a business analyst for Northrop Aircraft. She will handle the back office and administration functions of the business.
“With the stabilization of the economy, top performers are gaining confidence to move again, and the resulting turnover is creating urgent openings,” says Anderson. “Coupled with an increasing number of baby boomer retirements, the stage is set for an impending talent shortage. Our goal is to help our clients acquire and retain key talent to grow their businesses and outpace their competition.”
Both Don Anderson and Linda Rutledge hold BA degrees in marketing from the University of Oregon and MBAs from Pepperdine University.
