For high-growth biotech companies, the executive team's admin needs are growing faster than admin resources can keep up—straining internal admins and bogging down the c-suite and sales leaders in busywork.
Executives spend 16 hours a week on administrative tasks. Meanwhile, the ranks of executive admins have shrunk by 65 percent. As a result, fast-growing biotech companies lack the time, expertise, and resources needed to build an administrative layer for senior executives and sales producers.
Where does 16 hours per week go? Scheduling meetings, document prep, email triage, travel and expense management, CRM data management, and more

Here at Prialto we’ve used our decades of collective business experience to develop a collection of best practices that drive all of our interactions. Here are just a few of the ways we’ll ensure you get exceptional service.
Executives and senior producers have contacts stored in a variety of places, including your inbox, email management tool, CRM, spreadsheets, etc. This makes it difficult to keep track of people, network, send emails, and engage other outreach activities.
When you start working with Prialto, virtual assistants consolidate all your contacts as you see fit. After that, they will ensure all your contact management systems are consistent and up to date.
When executives are networking, meeting clients, and carrying out other responsibilities, they just reach out to your virtual assistant using the communication channels you prefer.
Our assistants will adopt the messaging tools you use and respond to all requests within the hour, so your executives have easy access to support while they are on the go. Whenever they are not immediately available, your backup assistant will respond and ensure you get the support you need.
Whether prospecting for sales, analyzing competitors, or creating briefs for important meetings, our virtual assistants are experts at collecting research data based on your requirements and criteria. Your virtual assistant will carefully curate the information executives need to stay well-informed and support business initiatives. Information we gather for our current clients includes:

Matt Paulson is the Development Chief of Staff for CytomX, responsible for executive support. At the time Matt came onboard, the company’s four internal executive assistants were supporting 20 executives, which was becoming unsustainable.
"Our internal executive assistants were overwhelmed. Things were slipping through the cracks. We engaged Prialto to take on scheduling, travel, and expense management.”
The CytomX executive team was growing faster than the admin team could keep up. Recruiting, hiring, training, and managing new admins, with one admin assigned to three to five executives, was time consuming and would require additional HR and management resources.
The company was drawn to Prialto’s managed service model, where Prialto hires, trains and manages virtual assistants—CytomX executives just tells Prialto’s Engagement Managers what they need, and Prialto Productivity Assistants (PAs) get it done.
