Mark Rogers

Senior Account Director Bridgewater, New Jersey

"The Hudson RPO team is so connected to the client, my learning curve here was much faster than I’ve experienced at other companies"

In August 2018, after 18 years of pharmaceutical recruiting on the client side, Mark Rogers left his role as Global Head of Talent Acquisition for Research & Development at Bristol-Myers Squibb to join Hudson RPO as Senior Account Director at Bausch Health.


“I had never been on the provider side before, but having worked with RPO companies, I know the value of an excellent RPO solution. I was looking for something new, and after an interview with Hudson RPO leadership, I knew this was a unique situation with career opportunities and a lot of room for growth,” Mark said.

Marks works onsite at Bausch Health and manages a team of 12 recruiters, some of whom are onsite while others work virtually.

Having served as a Petty Officer Second Class in the U.S. Navy, Mark also draws from his military experience to lead his team of sourcers and recruiters. “The military gives you a can-do attitude. I see problems as opportunities. It also allows me to look beyond the day-to-day to the larger mission: to help patients lead happier, healthier, more productive lives.”

Despite being part of an outsourced team, Mark said it feels like he’s part of the in-house HR group. “The Hudson RPO team is so connected to the client, my learning curve here was much faster than I’ve experienced at other companies. I just had so much access to senior leaders and client stakeholders,” Mark added. “It has allowed me to accelerate and contribute faster.”

Mark believes more in-house talent acquisition leaders should consider working for an RPO provider. “The perception is that RPO is a one shot deal… you’re an account manager and there’s no room for growth, but with a growing RPO business, there are a lot of good career opportunities.”
