“PebblePost was at a critical juncture in the development of our technology and we needed a world class Mar-Tech CTO. We were under the gun, understaffed and experiencing hockey stick growth. I trusted John and his team to deliver as they did years earlier in my VC portfolio, and deliver they did; from sourcing, prepping to screening and interviewing for both culture and capabilities. The result just nailed it.”

The team focuses on defining long-term success in the role and so shows potential candidates a clear path to success in their new job. This translates to more, better candidates; the results are genuinely impressive.” – Ben Duranske, CEO, Beam Solutions
