We would like to take full credit for the ProMotion Career Management agent-based approach to career management, but our model and services are a direct build-up of the services that our clients have directly asked us to perform for them over the years.

Individuals used the phrase “unmet needs,” in terms of needing someone to help them navigate their careers. Employers expressed a similar vacuum in having someone to help them fully vet and prep potential hires, as well as help onboard the eventual hires.

And both groups were especially looking to engage with a firm that has in-depth experience in the medical and scientific employment fields, having been employed by some of the biggest names in the business, to be their true partner.

Since our start in the life sciences, word has spread about our unorthodox methodology for helping individuals and employers succeed, and we now help people in all sorts of professional fields.

Adam J. Millinger, LCSW
Adam has been instrumental throughout his 20+ year career in partnering with clients to articulate who they are as achievers and leaders that may not have been fully appreciated or expressed in their current work environments. His extensive background in both executive search and leadership assessment has developed a facile ability to mentor clients and start planning the optimal course for their career ambitions.

His undergraduate degree from George Washington University and Masters in Social Work from New York University have served him well within the highly personal nature of his chosen field. Prior to founding PCM, Adam worked as a senior consultant at Caliper—a leading talent management consultancy—and later as a Partner at Battalia Winston, a top 10 retained executive search firm where he served as a global lead for the Life Sciences Industry Practice.

Adam has conducted numerous talent advisory engagements ranging from building therapeutic teams for world-class pharmaceutical companies to being commissioned to do a study focusing on successful Physician Leaders in the Life Sciences Industry. His clients and network include global leaders in the Life Sciences and Healthcare industries, and he has enjoyed professional and personal relationships with some of these executives for over 15 years.

His in-depth expertise across executive search, assessment, and talent management makes him uniquely qualified to offer career agent services for life sciences and business leaders and their employers throughout their careers.

When not coaching a youth baseball team, Adam can be found spending time with his family hiking, biking, or engaging in other outdoor activities.
