Client Testimonials

Johan Vandaele

I’m over 4 months in the new assignment I achieved thanks to Chris and with hindsight, it’s a perfect match! Thanks Chris for making this happen. All along the recruitment process you have been striving for a win-win-win situation, not a quick fix match. Focus was on matching experience, cultural mindset and personality with the “mission” rather than just “a job function in a company”. Also, your efforts went beyond bringing 2 parties together, it was also about accompanying the candidate all along the process. By far, the best recruitment process I went through. Thanks again Chris! I will certainly recommend your services whenever I can.

Head HR Group at Siegfried

Petr Novotny

Mark and GxPeople demonstrated an excellent knowledge of GDP while managing a successful senior recruitment project for us, and have become a credible and trusted partner to our business. Collectively they have shown us how a “search model” can work effectively with a specialised agency partner. Mark and the team were honest and transparent and managed our expectations right through until the end. If you are looking for a QA or QC partner, please do not look any further.

Chris was a great help in finding me current position. Is was very professional and took the time to find out what I was looking for in my next company and next manager. His good relationship with the industry meant he was effective in moving things forward efficiently. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a new role.

Mark is an extraordinary head-hunter. Professionality in identifying the most effective match between needs of the company and skills of the candidate is a consequence of competent and long-term relationship building. Dynamic and well dosed tenacity in representing interests of his clients results in record achievements. Mark is enjoying his job and superior performance is rewarding him and his clients.


Associate Director Quality Assurance External Supply Europe at Takeda

Pawel Grzych

I really enjoyed working with Mark and GXPeople team. They took a lot of time making sure that everything goes the best way possible. Despite quite dynamic and short recruitment process, I've got all support I needed from Mark. His approach was very professional and personal at the same time. I did not feel pushed to accept the job until I was fully satisfied with it. I fully recommend Mark and GXPeople to anybody looking for another career step. They make otherwise very stressful time of changing the job quite enjoyable.

Nadia is a very effective consultant with deep understanding of the Pharma industry and a unique ability to help people making the right choice.

Data Integrity Compliance Officer at Merck

Uwe Teubert

My company had an urgent need for a Head of QC at our site in Hameln and our experience of recruiting senior quality roles in the past had been complicated. GXPeople contacted me to propose their services, and the directors Chris Bouffard and Nadia Di Meo travelled to meet me to discuss the role in more detail. They gained a strong understanding of our requirements and company culture and we were happy to work with them on an exclusive search basis. GXPeople subsequently provided us with several interesting candidates, one of whom stood out as having the ideal mix of personality and technical skills. We have now reached the end of the process having selected this candidate. GXPeople impressed me with their knowledge of quality and their overall level of service. I would not hesitate to use Chris and Nadia again and will recommend their services to our parent company as true quality specialists.

Chris and his team were very professional and efficient in locating a new Head of QA for our company. The requirements for the position crossed Clinical Pharmacovigilance , Distribution and Manufacturing QA.
Chris was able to pre-select a number of candidates that led us to making the final appointment.

Operations Director at Allergy Therapeutics

Peter Dr. Mayr

Nadia from GXPeoples contacted me on behalf of a global acting pharmaceutical Company. Nadia and her colleagues offered a job opportunity to me. Nadia explained in detail the role and responsibilities. After I agreed to get in touch with her client Nadia prepared me very well for the first phone interview. Some more interviews followed with different stakeholders. Each time Nadia provided valuable infos to me before the next interview and facilitated the whole process. After each phone call she passed a feeback given by the client. Even after I got an offer from the Company Nadia gave me hints for a successful negociation of the contract. THANK YOU very much for your assistance and your Coaching. A big recommandation for GXPeoples at all !!! Peter M.

Ridiculously efficient is what comes to my mind when I think about GxPeople!
I was contacted by Nadia and Chris for new career opportunities. I was particularly impressed by the support they provided throughout the recruiting process I was going through, always thinking about my best interests.
I recommend anyone working with GxP when looking for new job opportunities.


QA Manager ESO DS at Sandoz

Adam Slatter

Chris and his team helped us recruit an outstanding Quality Director for sterile manufacturing with the minimum upheaval and a very efficient and well-managed process. We'd made a proposal and had it accepted in around a month - possibly a record?


Head of quality and Compliance at Ingenus Switzerland

Emma Swords

I first met Nadia while working at Viropharma in 2013 and I was impressed with the work she did for me. When I moved to Glenmark, we had a need to re build the quality team. The timing couldn't have been more perfect as Nadia and Chris Bouffard had recently set up Gxpeople, an agency that specialises purely in this area. From day one, I have appreciated Nadia & Chris's refreshing and honest approach to matching our open jobs with candidates. The screening and sourcing is second to none. Quality Assurance is always a tricky area to source people, but Gxpeople were able to find candidates with the right technical skills, combined with strong communication, and when necessary, leadership skills. GXPeople are clearly extremely well connected in the Quality arena and are passionate about the service they provide to everyone they work with – candidate or client. This knowledge and commitment to service sets them apart, and I would look no further than Gxpeople for QA vacancies. It has been a pleasure doing business with Nadia and Chris, and I would recommend GXPeople highly to anyone who values quality and professionalism.

Human Resources Business Partner at Viropharma

Adrian Zahra

What separates Nadia and her colleague Chris (GXPeople) from most recruiters operating in the area of Quality is their deep understanding of the GxP 'space'. They really know what they are talking about and consequently gain the trust of both clients and candidates very quickly. I cannot praise them enough for their dedication to rigorous pre-qualification of candidates, thus eliminating the risk of unqualified applicants wasting the hiring manager's time. In my experience, their success rate comes very close to 100%, which is rare! Since I have started working with them, I have come to trust them to get the job done whenever they commit to an assignment. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Nadia or GXPeople and look forward to our continued successful partnership.

Sr. Director QA Europe at Glenmark Pharmaceuticals

Michael Walter

I have known Nadia and Chris Bouffard and their team since September 2016. During that time while I was at Ferring Pharmaceuticals in Kiel we hired them for difficult searches in Germany and they have an outstanding record of delivering excellent local candidates within tight time-frames. They clearly have unrivalled networks of QPs, and a deep understanding of the quality area. I would highly recommend GxPeople to any company that wants an honest professional recruitment partner in the quality space. 

HR Leader at Ferring Pharmaceuticals

Manfred Treitz

I have known Chris and Nadia since 2016, initially as a client and then a candidate. As a candidate they took the time to get to really know me and offer me options perfectly suited to my skillset. They both have excellent knowledge of the Quality area as well as overwhelming industry perspective and market intelligence ensuring they never waste peoples time, or efforts. They both have excellent consultative approaches and I can  recommend Gxpeople if you need to hire Quality people or if you need new career options or advice.

Head of Site at Takeda

Frederik Schuurink

I have had very positive experiences when hiring clinical quality assurance staff. They are proven to be a skilled quality experts at finding the right applicants to match the right positions with demanding profiles. they were able to provide rights candidates with GCP rather then GMP experience (a mistake made by many other recruiters). Would definitely recommend/working again with them . If you need an expert to fill A quality role, do not hesitate to contact Chris and Nadia.

Director Clinical Quality Assurance at Celgene Switzerland

Rahul Deshmukh

I have personally know Nadia and her team since Dec 2016. During that time we have hired them for complex searches in Europe & USA, and they have an outstanding record of delivering excellent candidates within tight time-frames. They clearly have unrivalled networks within the global QA and QC space, and a deep understanding of the area. I would highly recommend GxPeople to any company that wants an open, transparent and efficient recruitment partner in the quality space.

Vice President HR at Glenmark Pharmaceuticals

Rosemary Pontarelli

GXPeople is a dedicated, trustworthy and professional agency that gets results. They possess expert knowledge of the quality area, a personable approach and creative thinking, alongside their ability to effectively manage the recruitment process from end to end, I would strongly recommend them to any professional seeking recruitment services filling senior quality expert roles requiring combination products or sterility assurance expertise across Belgium, Austria and Germany.

GxPeople has a team of very knowledgeable recruiters. I appreciate their refreshing and honest approach to matching our open jobs with candidates. I am sure we will continue to work together in the future.

The consultants at GxPeople are extremely well connected in the Quality arena and are passionate about the service they provide to everyone they work with - candidate or client.

Global Generics Company

VP Global Audit

I have worked with GxPeople to fill several roles in Europe, including a uniquely specialised role which I likened to finding ‘a needle in a haystack’. Thanks to GxPeople’s network we were able to fill this particular role in just over one month. Impressive work!

Global Pharmaceutical Company

VP Quality

The consultant I worked with at GxPeople was deeply committed to his work and ensured that his clients received the best possible service. He takes his work very seriously and also takes the time to get to know and understand his clients and make the relationship feels personal. Not only do GxPeople provide a top-level service but, when sometimes things don’t go the way we want, they’re really receptive to feedback on how their company can improve. I wish all agencies could have the same attitude!

Generics Company

HR Business Partner Quality

I’ve worked with GxPeople recently and think they are one of the most knowledgeable recruiters in the Quality marketplace. We are pleased that they have become one of our recruitment partners.

Global Pharmaceutical Company


When I moved to Glenmark, we had a need to rebuild the quality team. The timing couldn't have been more perfect as Nadia Dimeo and Chris Bouffard had recently set up GxPeople. From day one, I have appreciated Nadia and Chris's refreshing and honest approach to matching our open jobs with candidates. The screening and sourcing is second to none. QA is always a tricky area to source people, but GxPeople were able to find candidates with the right technical skills, combined with strong communication, and when necessary, leadership skills. GxPeople are clearly extremely well connected in the Quality area and are passionate about the service they provide to everyone they work with – candidate or client.

Glenmark Pharmaceuticals

Interim Director

I worked alongside Nadia Di Meo and her colleague Chris Bouffard from GxPeople to recruit experienced GxP personnel into posts in the UK and the EU for a shared multi-national client. They responded nimbly, assessed the situation professionally and offered good candidates who were taken up to fill the vacancies. Nadia and Chris are energetic and believe that good communication is crucial so we always knew where we were and the recruitment project progressed at speed. I would be delighted to work with them again and, on the basis of this experience of working with GxPeople, I rate them highly.


Head of Quality Control

Working with GxPeople to fill a GMP position is almost a guarantee of success! The consultant I worked with, and his team, took the time to understand the required profile for the candidate. They have a profound knowledge of the technical, GxP side of skills, but also understand the importance of the candidate’s team-related skills and the personality. GxPeople work to understand their client’s company culture, and propose only candidates who fit in all areas. I can recommend them as an outstanding recruiter, and certainly will ask them again to cooperate for any upcoming GxP vacancy.

Global Pharmaceutical Company

Siegfried Hameln

I am pleased to express my enthusiasm concerning the cooperation with GxPeople in terms of a high level freelance project. Chris Bouffard initiated the contact between the client and me always in a professional manner. The communication between all parties was quick, reliable and always inspired by trust. I would not hesitate to enter a repeated business relation in the future. All in all: thanks a lot for an excellent and successful business!
