Richard is a Senior Research Consultant in our New York office. As the most experienced research consultant on the US team, he leads executive searches in North America, supplying in-depth client and candidate research and talent mapping across all industries. Richard cut his teeth recruiting software engineers, but in recent years he’s focused more on Heads of Product and VP/CXO searches for high growth tech start-ups as well as partner/operating roles for established and growing VC firms. He has worked with a variety of clients ranging from early-stage green energy software start-ups to Fortune 500 electric car manufacturers.
Prior to Acre, Richard earned dual degrees in Corporate Strategy and Management and Spanish from Vanderbilt University before joining IQTalent Partners as the fifth hire. Over eight years, he helped them grow from 5 to 200+ full time employees and a merger.
