tml Partners Appoints New Marketing Lead for Innovative AI Platform Owkin

Case Studies

Owkin was built on the belief that medical research should be collaborative, inclusive, and privacy-preserving. Today, Owkin is building a global research network — using federated learning — connecting data scientists, clinicians, researchers, and pharma on a research platform that keeps the data secure and preserves privacy. Owkin has raised over $70M from leading VC funds and is now working with the largest cancer centres and pharmaceutical companies in Europe and the US.

The business was looking for a marketing lead to take their Artificial Intelligence products out to market, targeting various medical and science institutions globally.  This was a broad B2B position focused on raising Owkin’s AI solution awareness within their target audience.

Owkin engaged David Zaranka of tml Partners to support the search. David was able to utilise his extensive network within the tech space to source a range of suitable candidates. It was a focused and efficient search process with the company selecting Liz Allen as the successful candidate.

Darius Meadon, CMO of Owkin comments: “tml Partners were the ideal partners for us. They are fast, professional and results-oriented. They are also great ambassadors for our company and the values we espouse”.

Liz Allen comments: “David is the best recruiter I’ve ever worked with. His approach is friendly, enthusiastic and consultative – the perfect balance of support and good communication. He took the time to not only understand my background, but also my broader career ambitions and what I need from a job from a more holistic perspective (company culture, team dynamics, etc.).

“Thanks to his support, I landed a dream job and I’m thankful for his encouragement at every step along the way. His passion and dedication to matching the right candidates for the right roles is clear. I would strongly recommend David to anyone seeking a new marketing role, or to companies looking to find the right senior marketing hire.”
