San Diego-based Toft Group, an executive search firm building leadership teams for life sciences and health care companies, announced the opening of a new office in South San Francisco.

“Our new location in the heart of one of the world’s top biotech communities aligns with our commitment to deliver higher quality candidates more quickly than other firms, thereby enabling our customers to commercialize their novel products faster for the benefit of patients worldwide,” said Robin Toft, founder, president and CEO of the Toft Group.

Toft’s headquarters are in San Diego, and it also has offices in San Ramon, Boston and now South San Francisco. According to the company, the locations are well positioned to support the top U.S. biotech, pharmaceutical, and digital health hubs, while also providing its executive search services worldwide.

This announcement follows recent news that the company has hired two new vice presidents to support the Toft Group’s West Coast pharmaceutical practice.

The firm also announced it has implemented a leading cloud-based platform that will provide key operational infrastructure to its mission. Additionally, Toft Group said it recently entered into a direct partnership with the IESF Global Network, one of the largest retained executive search networks in the world, to enhance its ability to deliver talent to its global customers.
