Boyden expands U.S. partner presence in Boston

Boyden has announced announced two key executive appointments in the Boston market, which will further strengthen the company’s North American presence and deepen its commitment to client-centric service.

Lissa Conn has joined Boyden as a Partner, and late last year Paul Moran, a top senior executive recruiter, was appointed as a Managing Partner. Both will be based in Boyden’s newly formed Boston office and will focus on the technology, healthcare and life sciences sectors.

Conn brings in-depth experience as a recruiter in the technology and healthcare sectors and has held a variety of positions in executive search, executive talent management and strategic assessment.

“Lissa is a great addition to our Boston team, said Trina Gordon, President and CEO of Boyden World Corporation.  Her deep expertise in the technology and healthcare sectors will be a significant asset as we continue to build our presence in the very active Boston market.”

Conn began her career at a leading boutique search firm in Boston, and subsequently moved to another leading global executive search organization. She also worked as a corporate recruiter and practice lead for the healthcare management consulting practice of a publicly traded global business and technology consulting firm. She has consulted with leading Boston-area CIO practices and top executives on strategy, partnering, collaboration, accountability, expectation management and innovative initiatives.

Conn has also worked with venture capital and private equity firms and their portfolio companies, ranging in size from large multinationals to mid-sized corporations. She has demonstrated expertise in finding top-tier leaders for her clients, including CEO, CMO, CIO and other C-level and Board of Director positions.

She holds a bachelor’s degree from University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Ms. Conn also works with Community Servings, an organization that provides meals to the acutely ill, their families and their caregivers and is a member of The Women's Executive Group and the UMass Alumni Association.

In his lead role, Moran will serve as a key member of Boyden’s Technology practice and will be focused on talent acquisition and retention. 

“Paul is a proven, successful search professional with strong credentials,” said Ms. Gordon. “His depth and breadth of expertise will be a great asset to our clients and will play a key role in shaping our leadership services in the U.S. market and for our global clients.”

Moran brings 25 years of experience in talent acquisition in a variety of functional positions including C-Suite, general management, professional services, sales, marketing, finance and engineering positions. He has serviced clients in multiple industries including technology, finance, healthcare, clean technology and professional services.
