Senior Director and Global Head of Biostatistics, PRA Health Sciences

Chris Watton stands out from the sea of recruiting consultants that I have met throughout my HR career due to his extensive experience as we as his excellent knowledge of the industry and his customers. He knows his craft and is always a great partner for recruitment activities. He quickly understands business needs and finds attractive candidates even in a tight market of experts

Senior HR Manager, German Pharmaceutical Company

I’ve known Chris since 2009 when he used his extensive contact list to find a freelance role for me in Berlin. The resulting years of work for me in Berlin would not have happened without this initial foot in the door for which I will always remain grateful. In our years of association I’ve always known Chris to be dedicated, professional and friendly in his approach. He has developed an excellent knowledge of my industry (crucial for any recruiter) and really goes the extra mile to understand the individual and client perspectives. I would have no hesitation in recommending him in the future and wish him the best of luck in his new venture.

Chris has been providing relevant CVs  for all positions I had open. Chris listened to me and understood what I was looking for. This saved me a lot of time as I didn’t had to go through CVs that were not fitting the role/mindset I wanted to set up into my team. Chris proved to be always reliable and available. He also has an extensive knowledge of the pharma market and he is always aware of all news in pharma world. This is very valuable as a manager recruiting international profiles.

Chris is definitely a recruiter I always contact when I recruit and I will continue to do so.

Christophe Sauce

Head of Study Budget Center of Excellence, Top 20 pharmaceutical company

It was a pleasure to work with Chris! Since the very beginning of our contact Chris was superb, very friendly, but highly efficient and profissional in his approach. With his expertise of the field, Chris worked with me to make sure my professional experience and skill set was a perfect match to the job requirements of his client in order to achieve the best outcome possible for all parties. Chris revealed great integrity and was very supportive and reliable through every phase of the process, right until the end! I strongly recommend Chris!

Tânia Botelho de Sá Veiga

Associate Director - Regulatory Affairs, Astellas

Chris submitted several CVs to our human resources department, and we worked together for several days to identify someone who would be a good fit for our available position. He seemed honest and not pushy, but at the same time, willing to do what it takes to cement the deal within our very tight timeframe. For example, our candidate-of-choice was located in another country where visa restrictions prevented a face-to-face interview, so Chris suggested a video teleconference interview, and (as our security systems did not allow Skype) did much of the legwork to identify an appropriate location for the interview within the Ukraine. Within the short amount of time we worked together, Chris demonstrated excellent communication and problem-solving skills. I would be very pleased to work with him again in the future

Chris acted as a professional interface between Grünenthal and myself, and Stelfox provided the lead to Grünenthal to begin with. Thank you…

Mark Jansens

Chris has a great professional approach, he is a good listener and cares about the people he deals with. My current position is a true testament of how he understands what one is looking for in a position. He is a lovely person to work with.

Ibelema Emeh

Having worked with Chris a number of times I have no hesitation in recommending him. His in-depth knowledge of the Pharmaceutical and CRO sector accompanied by his professional and enthusiastic style are reflected in the quality of his work and this along with his consultative approach and extremely good work ethic made him an excellent partner in my job search.

Nadim Mohmood

Senior Statistical Programmer, UK

Chris has been a partner of PSI for three years. Over that time his insight and connections through the pharmaceutical sector in Europe have really worked for us as we sought to establish relationships between our conference and key companies in the industry.

Robert Cuffe

Director ViiV Healthcare/ Chairman, PSI

I very much appreciate Chris’s commitment, openness, and expertise in what he does. He knows what he is talking about, and asks the right questions when discussing the profiles and provide tailored profiles to us to meet our requirements. I have dealt with Chris on various recruitment levels up to Senior VP levels and he has always impressed both the HR and line management team in his approach.

Chris shows a “problem solving attitude and will come up with solutions and improvements on recruiting and other business matters to improve our company”. I would highly recommend Watton Hall to any business. We have used Chris for executive search, contingency and contract recruitment.

Knowing Chris Watton for more than 10 years he always demonstrated exceptional skill and professionalism. He is certainly one of the most experienced recruitment specialists in the life science sectors I had the pleasure to do business with.
