James Houlder

Director of Research & Operations

My role combines that of Director of Research & Operations, with a specialist focus on Life Sciences & Health Technology.  I took on my current role following an MBO in 2018, having previously led the research team at Bailey Fisher for 4 years.  I now oversee all operational aspects of the business, as well as heading up the research function, providing in-depth market intelligence and analysis across a broad range of technologies, sectors and markets.  Within my specialist area of Life Sciences and Health Technology, I focus in particular on growth companies at the convergence of Technology and Health.

Before joining Bailey Fisher, I worked as an in-house recruiter for large corporates, across a variety of technical sectors.  I focused on pharmaceuticals at MedImmune; biotech at Illumina and software at Autonomy and HP.

I’m pleased to bring together entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders within Life Sciences & Health Technology for our series of Life Sciences Leadership Dinners.
