 “Our search posed the challenge of finding a transformational executive with domain expertise in social, advertising, and data. In addition, we had steep culture needs. Accelent worked hard to understand us and then worked even harder to find that needle in a haystack. They ran a sharp process and the result was great.” – Kurt Abrahamson, CEO
