Jacob Rasin, based in Stockholm, is a trusted advisor to clients when it comes to appointing leaders into roles such as CEO, CFO, board members, and other key management team members. He supports clients in these decisions through search and/or through assessments and leadership development projects. He has deep expertise in medical devices, frequently working across Europe in this area, and in pharmaceuticals, biotech, and health-care services across the Nordics. Other than in Healthcare, Jacob also serves a diverse set of clients such as in private equity, family-owned businesses, and listed companies across sectors.
Everyone benefits when strong, well-intended, effective leaders have the opportunity to make their mark on business and organizations. I can’t think of a better job than helping to foster such leaders and seeing them take on important roles.
