Short Bio on Principal Officers and Consultants

Adam Slone, CEO
In 2000, Adam founded Slone Partners, one of the first executive recruitment firms specializing in the diagnostic and laboratory testing industries. After a decade of successful business development experience in the diagnostic laboratory industry, Adam recognized that his in-depth knowledge of this complex industry was necessary to help companies compete for talent. His industry knowledge and extensive contact base enabled Slone Partners to successfully place hundreds of professionals with clients in its first years of operation.

As the needs of the diagnostic and laboratory testing industries evolved, so did Slone Partners. In 2007, Slone Partners expanded its service offerings to include a comprehensive set of services, recognizing its clients’ desire to build and develop the skill set of its internal talent pool.

Adam holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Old Dominion University. Adam speaks regularly at some of the industry’s largest conferences.
