Our Recruiting Sweet Spot

Revenue Generating Roles

"If you build it, they will come?"  That's never been the case.  Even truly category defining products require exceptional Sales, Marketing & Field Technical talent.  For over twenty years we've focused on searches for "Revenue generating" roles.  We know how to evaluate, qualify deeply and speak the language of our industries . . . fluently.


We recruit Executive Leaders, VP's, Directors, Individual Contributors & Professional Consultants for short term engagements.



Our clients build things.  Some design and build novel ways to move, store and analyze data, others provide the applications and infrastructure the world relies on to communicate and others make the next generation of clean energy possible.

If this sounds like your company, or one of your portfolio companies, you should get to know us.

“Dana and his crew are great at identifying and qualifying candidates – no question. But where these guys earn their money is getting the behind the scenes story on candidates. For us, these guys got it done before the interview even took place and didn’t take references at face value. They kept digging so that we had an accurate picture of each candidate.”


Jim Vogt, CEO Zettaset
