I am thrilled to announce the appointment of Etienne Van Wyk as Head of Quality Assurance & Regulatory Affairs department within Life Sciences at Impel Talent.

Over the last 2 years Life Sciences has been a core staple of our business and one that I have personally spent the bulk of my own recruitment career building and fostering. So, finding someone that could meet my high expectations combined with someone who aligned with our goals values, and our ambitions for the future of the business was no easy task but; it was worth the wait!

Etienne brings a level of competency that not only helps widen our reach within Life Sciences but allows us to focus on one of our clients biggest fundamental problem areas: finding key Quality and Regulatory talent. He brings over 10 years of experience leading Life Sciences recruitment groups, combining team leadership and pure recruitment specialism to strengthen the Impel Team. He has also led the expansions within start-up recruitment environments and brings both the energy and expertise to help us scale.

What is also extremely exciting for our candidates and clients is that Etienne has focused on building and scaling start-up Biotechs, Pharma and Medical Device companies across EMEA, US, APAC and LATAM with a track record of bringing a further pool of opportunities for those in our larger network.

Outside of work Etienne (when he is not taunting us on the rugby performance of the Springboks over England!) enjoys adventure partnered with a love of the outdoors. You can probably find him on the golf course, surfing, mountain biking or enjoying a good barbecue.
