James Houlder

Director of Research & Operations

Following a management buyout in 2018, I took on the role of Director of Research & Operations, 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.  My specialism is Life Sciences and Health Technology, with a particular focus on growth companies at the convergence of Technology and Health.

Before joining Bailey Fisher in 2014, 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.
