Calibre One appoints partner to head life sciences & healthcare practices
Salt Lake City —Calibre One, a leading global executive search boutique specializing in building leadership teams for innovators, entrepreneurs and companies undergoing technology or digital transformation, announces the appointment of Betsy Patterson as partner. Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Patterson will leverage her 30 years’ experience within the life sciences and healthcare industries to expand Calibre One’s position in this increasingly critical market throughout the United States.
“Along with her impressive expertise in core life sciences and healthcare, Betsy has expertise in digital technology, manufacturing and client services and instinctively understands the importance and necessity of how they all converge and work seamlessly together,” said Tom Barnes, managing partner. “Her wealth of knowledge in these areas will be instrumental as we build out our company presence in these industry areas and indeed in the Intermountain West region of the country.”
Prior to joining Calibre One, Patterson held a leadership role at a retained search firm where she worked on executive placements for medical device, pharmaceutical, biotech and CDMO clients while overseeing day-to-day operations, staffing and marketing. Additionally, she served in a variety of communications and investor relations leadership roles both in-house and as a consultant advising CEOs of R&D, startup and commercial microcaps to Fortune 500 companies.
“I’ve been discussing and strategizing talent development and acquisition, as well as in-house talent strengths, with the professional investment community on behalf of client companies throughout my career,” said Patterson. “This advisory component of my experience brings a unique perspective to the entire recruitment process, and I’m excited to put this knowledge to work at Calibre One.”
She has volunteered for several non-profit organizations including a homeless shelter, a charitable education foundation and the US Tennis Association (USTA). Since 2010, Patterson has worked extensively within Utah’s public school system to fund and develop STEM, art and writing programs, including the creation of an ongoing first-grade writing program for a Salt Lake City elementary school that has resulted in students improving their standardized testing scores year after year.
Patterson holds a bachelor’s degree from West Virginia University and an MBA from Western Governors University.
