Kris Steen


Kris joined Stevenson in 2015 — bringing nearly 20 years experience in Life Sciences executive search to the team. She partners with clients ranging from Pre-Series A ventures to commercial stage companies across multiple functional areas from R&D to commercial teams, as well as recruiting C-Level executives and Non-Executive Board members.  In addition to expert client work, she leads Stevenson’s DE&I Initiative and partners with Women in Bio’s (WIB) “Boardroom Ready Program” in order to increase gender diversity across the industry. Kris is also a Limited Partner in How Women Invest Fund II, a women-led venture firm that invests solely in women founders.

Before Stevenson, Kris built and led the US-based business for a European Life Sciences executive search firm. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Philadelphia University and is an active member of WIB, HBA, Athena Alliance, MedTech Women, and the non-profit organization, Back on My Feet.

Kris spends her evenings navigating her love/hate relationship with her peloton, her weekends cheering on the sidelines of her son’s soccer games, and her holidays exploring sunny beaches with her family.
