Our Team

Nadia Di Meo

Managing Director - Co-Founder

After spending 10 years working in life sciences search, Nadia realised that the QA and QC areas of the industry require a far greater level of attention than broader areas of life sciences. She realised that an in-depth understanding of the small but significant differences within the Quality functions across all stages of the pharmaceutical lifecycle is vital, as are the cultural differences between each organisation and global location. With her extensive international experience, Nadia is able to provide a truly bespoke and personal service, underpinned by a far greater understanding of these differences than any of GxPeople’s competitors.


Chris Bouffard

Executive Director - Co-Founder

Chris has worked in the pharmaceutical sector for more than 15 years and has lived in various countries across Europe. During this time, he has watched the recruitment market become saturated. He believes that the only way a recruiter can really add value to their clients’ businesses is to become tightly focused on a niche area and know everything there is to know about it. Establishing GxPeople was an easy decision, born out of both client and candidate demand for a specialist Quality recruitment agency. Quality and pharma is an area that Chris understands intricately which means he can perfectly match client to candidate every time.

Mark Ferencvari

Senior Executive Search

Mark’s huge interest in life sciences led him to join GxPeople in 2015 so that he could interact with the industry and help connect professionals with exciting opportunities in truly exceptional organisations. After only a few months, he identified our competitors' biggest weakness; the ability to really understand and empathise with our candidates. Our niche operation allowed him to grow his industrial and scientific knowledge rapidly, ensuring his effectiveness in matching candidate and client suitability.
