Who We Are
I began my recruiting career working for a small recruiting boutique called Beta Technologies serving the Financial Services sector in Chicago. We recruited for trading firms in the nearby exchanges and largely focused on finding object-oriented developers for them. We developed a knack for recruiting consultants out of the (then) Big Six and moving them into industry; I even worked a quant search or two!
I’ve been advising and searching in the Education and Education Technology industries since 2006. The switch from tech to Education has been profound and meaningful. I have been privileged to work with large companies trying to figure out how to stay competitive and small companies still looking for seed stage investment; administrative, top-down solution companies and academic and class-room focused companies; services and product companies and the inevitable meeting of the two, SaaS companies. While I work broadly in a narrow industry, the most important factor in my personal and professional life is that I get to work with some of the most talented and committed people I have encountered in my entire career. Being able to tie your work, however indirectly, to the noble goal of Education seems to draw the best, brightest, and the most committed. I am thankful for being able to play my small part and hope that, whether you read this as a candidate looking for your next role or a company trying to figure out the best way to monetize your investments in people, we can figure out some way to work together soon.
