Adam Kennedy

Vice President, Morunda

Adam first came to Japan in 2002 while working alongside Philip Carrigan at his first company, and he has been working in search ever since. Adam is especially focused on senior-level positions in the pharmaceuticals and biotechnology sectors. For proof that Adam is one of Japan’s top recruiters, just ask the life science leaders who regularly seek him out for his bottomless knowledge of the industry and his commonsense consulting advice. Although Adam focuses on director-level positions and above, he also takes a personal interest in rare diseases, firms servicing pharma and device manufacturers, and smaller Asian operations that are just getting started. Originally trained in finance, Adam has many financial and operational management roles under his belt in the UK’s National Health Service, as well as with a boutique consulting firm.
