Ron Tess

Born and raised in the Garden State with stops in Houston, Seattle, and the Bay Area along the way. I’ve been recruiting in various industries for 4 years. I joined Ascent in 2011 on our IT team and from there was fortunate enough to get an opportunity on our awesome Life Sciences team.

I am now the Lead Scientific Recruiter on Ascent Pharma, overseeing all positions within Research & Development, Quality, and Manufacturing. It is an extremely exciting position and there is nothing more rewarding than to be able to pick up the phone each day to tell someone they have just been offered their dream job!

In my spare time, I am an avid runner, having completed 10 half marathons in races around the world. In 2017 I'll be running the famous NYC Marathon! I enjoy listening to music and spent 8 years working in radio in Seattle as a morning show producer for alternative rock stations. I look forward to chatting with you soon!
