Larry Chaityn

Clinical Recruiter


Larry has been serving people in the life sciences industry for nearly two decades. After a successful career as an investment banker partnering with clients in the healthcare and life science markets, he accepted a role as the Life Sciences Lead, Northeast, for a large, global staffing firm which ignited his passion for recruiting and working with candidates. “I like making a difference in peoples’ lives,” he says. “Strategizing with a candidate on a new opportunity, hearing the excitement in their voice, and knowing I’ve helped them is all very rewarding.” Larry brings five years of full-lifecycle experience to his role as a Clinical Recruiter for The Steely Group and specializes in such areas as Biometrics, Regulatory Affairs, and Supply Chain & Logistics, among others.


Prior to joining The Steely Group, Larry ran his own life sciences staffing firm and placed executive-level candidates in roles related to Research, Development and Discovery; Pharmacovigilance/Drug Safety; Quality Assurance; Regulatory Affairs; Phase IV Post Market Surveillance; and Commercialization. Before that, he achieved great success at Adecco Medical & Science, a specialty division of the world’s second largest workforce solutions firm. Earlier, after co-founding True North Global Partners – a financial strategy and implementation firm focused on the healthcare and life sciences industries – he founded the New York Tri-State Chapter of The Keiretsu Forum – the world’s largest angel investment network.


Serving great food to his family and friends is another of Larry’s passions. Trained at the French Culinary Institute of New York, he says that food doesn’t have to be fancy to be delicious; it’s all about using good, fresh ingredients. He recommends cooking seasonally and offers one of his favorite food and wine pairings: salmon and pinot noir. Larry is also a potter – he’s been throwing pottery since he was 13 – and, together with his wife, Masha, is a pet parent to a Belgian Malinois named Maya.
