Medical Devices

Changing market demands require agile, market proven leaders.

Korn Ferry’s Medical Devices Sector focuses on helping companies attract, develop, and retain executives who can effectively lead through change. Regulations and reimbursement requirements are increasing, putting pressure on companies to ensure their leaders can meet new constraints while leveraging growth opportunities. We offer a full range of solutions designed to address the talent needs of medical device companies — from strategic search services, competency-based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.

What your company will be tomorrow, depends on the leaders you prepare today.



Companies that develop, manufacture, and market devices and products used to treat or diagnose disease and injury are facing a growing emphasis on creating ones that provide benefits from a total health economic point of view. This trend, along with slowing growth in developed countries and rapid growth in emerging markets, requires leaders who are market savvy and understand how to drive innovation, reduce costs, and provide improved clinical benefit. These leaders need to possess a global mindset and be able to think out of the box to continue to drive profitable growth. Attracting, developing, and retaining these high caliber leaders is critical to your company’s future.
