Whether you’re a private equity partner, HR director, or CEO seeking hard-charging leaders to turn product-market fit into sustained growth, your next hire may be the most important one your company will make. Don’t trust the old-boys’ network to recycle the usual suspects. You deserve a recruiter who will go full blast to engage the highest level of talent.
