Stephen Provost, CPC

"I’m grateful to work with the Prestige Scientific team and with our clients. We get to partner with companies that are finding innovative solutions for patients with debilitating illness, and each search we complete makes an impact on the company by helping them get closer to their goal and help others improve their quality of life. We get to collaborate as a team every day and have fun while we do it!"

Recognizing an unmet need in Life Sciences, Stephen Provost co-founded Prestige Scientific with Michael Barros in 2001. At age 25, Stephen Provost was hired to help start the Boston office of a privately held national search firm. Stephen became one of the top Search Consultants in the country and was hand selected by the CEO to assume management oversight of the Boston office within his first year. After his quick rise to management, Stephen led his office to become one of the top two divisions in the company before being acquired by a private equity firm.

Stephen is passionate about continued education and building his knowledge base of the recruiting profession. He is not only a member of, but a Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) through, the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) and is a regular attendee at training seminars for executive search best practices. He is the Past President of the Massachusetts Association of Personnel Services (MAPS), a 100 year old trade association representing the Search Industry in Massachusetts.

Stephen is a Massachusetts native who currently resides in Wilmington, NC with his wife and four children. Outside of conducting executive searches, you’ll find him spending time with his family, training for his next triathlon, or being encouraged by his wife to parachute from another plane.
