Miranda Swank

Practice: Executive Search
Based in: The Netherlands
Languages: English, Dutch, German

I bring 10+ years’ experience in executive search in the biotech life sciences industry with a true passion for the Health and Nutrition. The assignments I enjoy working on are international by nature and stretch from R&D to Strategy, Business Development, Marketing and Corporate Communications leadership roles. I lived and worked in Switzerland, The Netherlands, San Francisco, Belize and Guatemala


I support clients across Food & Nutrition, Biotechnology and Pharma – ranging from corporates to start-up biotech. With over 10 years at KennedyFitch, I have been supporting global HEALTH clients by partnering with their senior leadership to drive for Performance & Development in Europe and the US. I can build on lasting relationships with clients who allow me to serve as an effective change agent in complex situations, facilitating positive outcomes in executive search and talent pipeline solutions. I derive energy from helping organizations and people develop over time, each in their own unique way. I’m curious about people’s journeys and cherish being their sparring partner for long-term professional and personal growth.

Trust, optimism and authenticity are my main values and as a person who is genuinely interested in people I like to make true connections with people. My passion is to find talented leaders for our clients, advise candidates about their next career step and bringing these two aspects together. I have been recognized for making a sound judgment which I am doing by listening well and by focusing on the strengths of people. You can expect honest and open communication, efficiency and speed in the process.
