“As a growing company where time is of the essence and watching our cash balance is critical; partnering with The Alan Group allowed us to quickly find very specific talent across North America. Their experience helping emerging software companies was evident as they clearly understand the nuances of the business and designed a process that helped drive our growth. They provided a single point of contact, went deeper in the interview process and allowed us to march to a defined budget. As a result we quickly built our enterprise sales and sales management team and are poised for more aggressive growth.”

“After working with The Alan Group for just a few weeks, it was clear they were the best search firm I had ever hired. We were under a very aggressive timeframe and they delivered. The Alan Group understood our business and made recommendations based on their experience in helping build software companies. We were introduced to top performers across the country who were "on the money" and thoroughly vetted. I'd highly recommend them for any mission-critical searches, especially for software companies expanding across North America."
