Matthew Phelan

Sales Manager

Matthew specialises in the HEOR (Health Economics, Outcomes Research), Analytics, Bio-statistics, and PRMA  (Pricing, Reimbursement and Market Access) sectors and focuses on the American market.

After 6 years in Healthcare and Manufacturing sales, Matthew was directly recruited by Barrington James as a consultant to add expertise and dynamism to its European HEOR and PRMA team.

Matthew quickly demonstrated the aptitude and dedication necessary to take advantage of the Barrington James’ famous in-house training and development programmes, and to achieve the ‘Best Practise Standards’, which the company insists on for all its executives wanting to make progress.

And Matthew made remarkably rapid progress. Within 14 months he had been twice promoted to reach his current rank of Sales Manager, one of the youngest in company history to do so.  Matthew had clearly shown that not only had he fully mastered the detail of his speciality, but had developed the close working relationship and depth of understanding of the clients’ business that enabled him to secure outstanding recruitment solutions in a difficult field.

Matthew’s success has come with both existing and new clients. He has an excellent strike rate of helping his clients identify scarce and sought after individuals, and helping secure their appointment.

Matthew belongs to the growing cadre of highly experienced and talented Barrington James executives who are rolling out the company’s strategy across the globe.

Matthew thinks that one of the best things about Barrington James is the very clear and very steep career path, with a chance to work internationally.  His own ascent has been rapid, but he would acknowledge that this was due in part to the tremendous support from everyone within the company, from the highly varied and experienced Management Team down.

The atmosphere within the company, Matthew describes as ‘fun, friendly and competitive’. There is a chance to run your own desk, a chance to secure shares in the company, and constant rewards and incentives for those capable of moving the business onwards.

Outside the company, Matthew enjoys playing football – having once reached a professional standard. He enjoys the movies and reading poetry, and is something of an adventurer, having recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.
