Life Science Cares Appoints Managing Director Beth Ehrgott to National Board of Advisors

Managing Director Beth Ehrgott has been named to the Life Science Cares National Board of Advisors.

Life Science Cares is a nonprofit organization that leverages the power of the life science industry to solve poverty by uniting the human and financial resources of life science companies and industry leaders.

Life Science Cares works with organizations in the areas of basic human survival (hunger, homelessness, domestic abuse, crime prevention, etc.), education (STEM education, college preparation and college success, educational enrichment and inspiration) and sustainability (job creation, job training, mentoring and economic development.)

Life Science Cares operates in Boston, Philadelphia, San Diego, the San Francisco Bay area and New York—five locations that are home to mass companies working in biotech, pharmaceuticals, medical technology and research.

Beth joins other industry leaders who shape and support the work of Life Science Cares across the country, but don’t live in one of the hub cities.

“Thank you Rob Perez and Sarah MacDonald for all that you do! I am humbled and honored to join the Life Science Cares family and excited to help champion such an inspiring mission!” said Beth.

Beth is the Head of The Alexander Group’s Global Life Sciences Practice, bringing more than 35 years of both global and national business development and executive search expertise to The Alexander Group.

She has conducted searches for top C-Suite executives across research and development, commercial, finance, corporate development, tech ops, legal, information technology, compliance, human resources, and diversity and inclusion for Fortune 500 companies as well as private equity/venture capital backed emerging growth clients across multiple industries, including pharmaceutical, generics, biotech, medical device, consumer packaged goods, manufacturing, not-for-profit, retail, financial services, and professional services.

Prior to joining The Alexander Group, Beth was Head of Talent Acquisition for Europe & ROW as well as Head of Global Talent Acquisition Projects for Novartis Vaccines & Diagnostics. Beth was tapped by this newly formed division of Novartis not only for her consultative approach to executive search but also for her proven track record to achieve the “slightly impossible.”

Previously, Beth was Co-founder & Partner of a national interim staffing firm that recruited executive level human resources professionals for a Fortune 500 client base.
