MANAGING PARTNER & CO-FOUNDER
Recognizing an unmet need in Life Sciences, Stephen Provost co-founded Prestige Scientific with Mike Barros in 2001. Since Prestige Scientific’s inception, Stephen has led the firm to complete over 600 executive searches for Life Science clients nationwide from senior management to C-level. Those clients have included venture funded biotechnology firms to public large pharmaceutical companies. He takes pride in helping clients achieve their milestones and works tirelessly until their goals are met.
At age 25, Stephen Provost was hired to help start the Boston office of a privately held national search firm. Stephen became one of the top Search Consultants in the country and was hand selected by the CEO to assume management oversight of the Boston office within his first year. After his quick rise to management, Stephen led his office to become one of the top two divisions in the company before being acquired by a private equity firm.
