Delivering leadership talent for the most innovative startups

Over the last 12 years, Global Recruiters of San Ramon has successfully completed many senior searches for a wide range of highly innovative startup companies in the US and beyond. Clients have been concentrated in High Tech, Agri Tech, Food Tech, Autonomous Vehicles, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning, Enterprise and Consumer software and hardware, Life Sciences, Bio Tech, Distance Learning, Materials Science, Global Logistics, Construction Tech, Advanced Analytics, eCommerce and more.

"We engaged with GRN San Ramon at a critical time in our company’s evolution; rapid product line expansion meant we needed someone uniquely qualified to deal with strategic operations and supply chain challenges, plus, we wanted someone that was passionate about clean energy vehicles. Adriaan’s approach was focused and expedient. The fee structure was realistic, compared to traditional retained firms and he was fully engaged from start to finish. We appointed a highly experienced candidate who loves motorcycles and cars and fitted our culture perfectly. It doesn’t get much better than that!"

-Richard, CEO, Clean Energy Automotive Co.

"I have worked with Adriaan over the last decade and consider him a world class executive and startup advisor. Since launching his executive search business in 2008, he has placed several key executives for me. Each search comes with strategic counseling that could only come from someone that has been on senior management teams and understands the difference the right hire can make. He comes with my highest recommendation."

-Mike, President and Global Sales Leader

In the world of startups, executive recruitment is all about value; senior hires have to deliver quickly and drive strategic value. We have been in the startup trenches ourselves; we understand how the dynamics change as growth takes hold and we have become expert at attracting truly passive candidates into new opportunities that are reshaping our worlds. More often than not, we assist startup founders with candidate profiling, role definition, value statement creation, process development and end-to-end hand holding through the recruitment and placement process.
