Vantage Partners completes key executive searches in products, engineering, marketing and sales roles for venture-funded companies and high growth market leaders Tweet this: Vantage Partners (@VantageSV) lands top executive talent to complete searches in Q3 for notable, market-leaders – Acxiom, Yahoo, OpenX, Yummly, LiquidSpace and more.

SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 16, 2013–

Vantage Partners LLC, a leading retained executive search firm in Silicon Valley, announces a successful third quarter of 2013 with completions of executive searches for clients ranging from early stage venture-funded to billion dollar publicly held companies. With continued high growth in Q3, Vantage Partners leads the executive search industry across the fastest-growing markets including Enterprise (Big Data/Analytics, SaaS, Cloud, Mobile and Security), Consumer, Internet, Digital Media and Ad Technology. In Q3, Vantage Partners observed an increase in key executive hires in core products, development and strategy roles. Also, record amounts of venture funding are being invested in Mobile/Consumer enterprises. With this new funding comes pressure from investors to engage and recruit the top echelon of executives.

In other observations, as the Ad Technology industry evolves, companies are repositioning themselves in the big data and analytics quadrant. This growing trend impacts the executive search process as more ad technology companies compete for talent in enterprise software markets. Companies report that finding and recruiting executive talent remains a key competitive advantage, but it is increasingly more difficult to accomplish without a search firm that has deep experience and track record in their industries. Engaging and recruiting executives from enterprise companies, however, into newer consumer oriented markets is an initiative that Vantage Partners has been able to achieve successfully for many clients.

Notable wins for Vantage Partners in Q3 include completion of VP Products, VP Engineering, VP Sales, VP Professional Services and VP Analytics searches for Yahoo, OpenX, Tagged, Ellie Mae, LiquidSpace, Yummly, Acxiom, Tyrian Systems and others.

Landing top executive talent to achieve transformational results remains a critical driving factor of many searches. With mission-critical searches, Vantage continues to deliver impactful executive talent to enable successful outcomes for clients across several technology sectors.
