We needed to transition our head of technology and Max presented the perfect candidate the first time.. he knew exactly what we were looking for, and he hit it out of the ballpark.
I need to say that Max cares.. not only does he do great searches but he understands what the start ups need, and our portfolio companies really benefit from PeopleConnect.
Max provided us with three very strong candidates who not only wanted to join our team, but agreed to do it on an equity basis.. which of course helps greatly when you’re in the process of fundraising.
We got good, quality candidates that we were immediately able to move on. Roles were filled much, much quicker to the point where we’ve done several hires and we’ve been happy with all of them.
I was very happy, within a few months to be able to bring the two software leads we were looking for. The relationship between PeopleConnect was very nice, very efficient. I really appreciated working with Max and his team.
PeopleConnect did a successful search for my Chief Marketing Officer, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the way they did it. They not only impressed me, but also impressed my new CMO and he became a supporter of the PeopleConnect team.
PeopleConnect recently helped Blurb hire two key people who both fit in and stand out. I highly recommend PeopleConnect as responsive, creative, and skillful recruiters who listen well and are well-connected.”
Max is a force of nature – he loves entrepreneurs and is a fantastic networker and service provider.”
I’ve used PeopleConnect several times for management candidates, sales candidates and technical candidates. I’ve been very, very satisfied and will continue to use them.
As a VC, angel and entrepreneur, I view Max is one of the most connected individuals I’ve met in my 20 years in the Silicon Valley – he is up on all the trends, the hot companies and seems to know people on both the investment and entrepreneurial side. The ongoing joke at the Keiretsu Forum meetings (typically 120+ attendees) is that Max might have brought half the audience with him as a ‘guest’ that day…He also is a genuine pleasure to be around and does his business with integrity from what I’ve found over 8+ years of knowing him at the Keiretsu Forum. Max blends a sense of enjoyment for his work with a keen awareness of how to put people together and get business done.”
Max is truly a leader in his industry. He has a gift for working with people and a unique insight into the world of high-tech start-ups. This leadership resonates through his entire company. But what I really want to stress about Max is that in our lifetimes we rarely meet people who give a damn – he does!”
Thanks for your help on tour CMO search! Bozeman and I are blown away by the quality you found, and especially Kate who is outstanding!
