Arterial hold a number of life science businesses within our portfolio.
We appoint independent Executive directors to each investee business, who are mandated with a dual role to both support the investee company, and to report back to the Arterial management team. The positions require attendance in person at monthly board meetings, reporting to Arterial’s office bi-monthly, and to attend the investees office for an average of three further days per month.
We place an immense emphasis on due diligence, corporate governance and oversight. Appointees should expect to be familiar with all aspects of the business, must not be afraid to ask difficult questions and be prepared to deal with difficult situations within a business that is typically growing exponentially. You will be determined to support the business and be committed to its success.
Applicants are likely to have experience from an industrial, chemical, life science, healthcare or technology business, and to have operated at board level within a multi-national business. You will act with integrity and professionalism within a collegiate atmosphere. The investee businesses will be typically gearing towards a trade sale or IPO within a 3-6 year timeframe, and so experience of trade sales, mergers or an IPO would also be helpful.
