RBW Consulting and Thorp Associates announces merger, with new Chief Growth Officer

A merger has been announced between RBW Consulting, specialist life science and technology search consultancy, and Thorp Associates, executive search and selection company.

Emma Thorp, founder of Thorp Associates, is joining the board as the company’s Chief Growth Officer to expand and lead the executive consultancy services for the new group.

At Thorp Associates, Emma established herself as a trusted advisor to her clients, demonstrated by long standing client relationships and a strong reputation in the industry.

Emma will continue working with her existing clients as Chief Growth Officer while bringing an enhanced service to RBW’s existing and future clients. As part of the new merger, Emma will launch a new initiative to support innovative, emerging biotech and health tech organisations, challenging the way recruitment and search are thought about in the life sciences industry.

I am delighted that I will have the opportunity to support RBW and Thorp Associate’s industry-leading clients alongside a team that is dedicated to improving healthcare outcomes for everyone.

Emma’s unique approach expands our value as a strategic business partner, offering a genuinely insightful and commercially astute approach to strategic hiring.

“Emma thrives on bringing about exceptional results for clients. She brings an insight, challenge and collaboration with business leaders which makes her a strategic asset to all her partners. This approach complements the great work our wider teams deliver and gives us the opportunity to leverage Emma’s approach and success through our broader team and practices.”
