SLI Associates, Inc. is a Recruiting Firm that specializes in the Pharmaceutical, Biotech, and Medical Device industries. For over 35 years we have built an excellent reputation of providing a very professional and personalized service to both our Clients and Candidates. We can do this because we understand both the intricate technical and scientific needs and requirements of our client companies, as well as the unique expertise, desires, and aspirations of our candidates, allowing us to make the ideal match between the company and the individual. 


We concentrate our efforts on all levels of Clinical, Regulatory, Quality, Safety, Medical/Scientific, Project Management, Biostatistics, Sales/Marketing/Market Access, and Legal Counsel. The combination of extensive experience in the field, and a state-of-the-art data management system enables us to offer the most confidential and thorough professional placement services available.

Founded by Simon Leeder (SLI's President) in 1981, we have earned unparalleled regard with potential Candidates who often prefer hearing from someone who has a lengthy track record in the industry, as opposed to a person/firm with limited experience and/or broader focus. We have also worked to gain the trust of Client companies that are best described as industry leaders in the world of new drug/product development and approval by establishing a business that is anchored on integrity, responsibility, innovation, and results. And with an unmatched corporate wellness program, we walk the walk and talk the talk.


SLI has the experience that gives us the insight to connect Pharmaceutical, Biotech, and Medical Device professionals to hiring departments avoiding oversights and missed opportunities.  While the majority of our efforts are concentrated on the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, we have successfully placed individuals across the entire United States, Canada, and many countries abroad.

President & Founder


Simon likes to see things through from start to finish. He founded and built SLI Associates to locate and place technical and executive level candidates who offer Regulatory Affairs, Clinical Operations, and Medical/Scientific expertise to the Pharmaceutical/Biotech marketplace mainly in the Northeast, although some companies have had SLI conduct nationwide and global searches.


Prior to establishing SLI Simon was the Vice President of RJS Affiliates, a Central New Jersey placement firm specializing in placement of Engineering and Scientific professionals.  Simon began his career in executive placement in 1978, and received numerous sales awards working as an executive search consultant. Over the last 40 years Simon has conducted, staffed, monitored, and completed thousands of successful search assignments.


Since the beginning of his career, Simon has been successful because he puts in the work, treats clients and candidates with respect, integrity, consideration, professionalism, and has a genuine desire to help people and organizations realize their objectives.


Senior Director of Recruiting

Barry likes to say that he’s a big loop closer and believes that it is a catalyst for his success as a Salesman, Small Business Owner, and most recently as an Executive Recruiter. Throughout his career, his goal has always been to help people improve their lives.  He is proud of his accomplishments in life and in business and believes he should treat people the way they’d like to be treated.  As a proud father of two boys in their twenties, his center has always been his family and friends and he’s lucky to be surrounded by people who reciprocate his admiration, respect, trust, and affection.   

In his current role as Executive Director of Recruiting, Barry sees another opportunity to help his clients in their efforts to discover new treatments and cures for people who are suffering from ailments, conditions and diseases that challenge them every day.  He also sees an opportunity to help people who have worked hard on their educations and careers aspire to play pivotal roles in the treatment of people who need their help.  He sincerely believes that bringing these people together is a noble endeavor with rewards at many levels.
