Founder, Nectar

We engaged A-List on a search for its first Chief People Officer. As the fastest growing D2C e-commerce company in the U.S. with a completely distributed and remote workforce, this was the most critical hire for the company.

We needed a CHRO who could hop on board a rocketship and completely build out their team and department from scratch while maintaining our iconoclastic culture as we expanded globally. Allen and his team moved fast and produced a remarkable bench executive talent.

As a start-up with three co-founders constantly on the move, coordinating and managing the process and feedback loop was a bit more challenging than usual. A-List rose to the challenge and helped us to maintain a cadence and refine our parameters in real-time as we determined exactly what we needed in our candidate. We ultimately made a fantastic hire.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Allen and A-List Search for not only being able to quickly understand a unique client and uncover exceptional talent but to be able to nimbly move with the shifting sands of a high growth start-up and steer a challenging process through to successful fruition.
