"I need a leader who can spend 25% of their time on critical strategy, planning, and leadership work and 75% of their time spent tactically" We hear this a lot. We've found that fractional leadership is often the right choice.

With our Fractional Executive Practice, we connect our qualified and curated roster of fractional leaders with startups and scaleups that have very specific needs. Our team has spent 25+ years building relationships with tech leaders who have experience tackling critical finance, HR, go-to-market, and tech challenges. Contact us to learn more about how to add a fractional leader to your team, or to become part of our Fractional Exec Roster!

It’s client love time, where we highlight one of our incredible clients: what they do, why we’re excited to partner with them, the good they’re putting into the world, and what we’ve worked on together! This month we're taking a look at Trudell Medical International, a world-renowned leader in respiratory care medical devices. A leader in our network (someone who's been both a client and a candidate of ours!) referred us to the team. It was a no-brainer to partner with Trudell after meeting the team and learning about the impact of their medical devices.

We've kicked off a search for a VP of Product Innovation to join the senior leadership team at a pivotal and exciting time. Read on to learn more!
