My relationship with Mark the CareerAve team spans more than eight years with two different, high-growth technology companies, VCE and McAfee. VCE was a joint venture between VMware, Cisco and EMC. In 2010 we were challenged with the aggressive goal of growing from 30 employees to 1,000 within 12 months. Mark and his team were engaged for a number of initiatives including global sales recruiting all recruiting operations and the selection and implementation of our first MSP.
Immediately upon leaving VCE, now Dell, and joining McAfee in February 2017, I once again retaining Mark and his organization to aid us in the reconstruction of the global talent acquisition organization. This would prepare McAfee for a spin-out from Intel so McAfee could be taken private. In addition to re-organizing our TA model, we had to simultaneously scale our global recruiting team and resources and had to quickly create highly scalable, fluid processes. Mark and the CareerAve team continue to be instrumental in the helping McAfee grow our TA team, develop and launch multiple global talent acquisition programs and generate operational intelligence.
The CareerAve teams global relationships, instinctive ability to quickly assess short and long term TA challenges, combined with the ability to provide actionable solutions is nearly priceless to any growing organization that recognizes the high impact Talent Acquisition has on the success of attracting and hiring top talent.

It is my pleasure to recommend the team at CareerAve as an outstanding RPO firm and strategic partner. My relationship with Founders Mark and Pat go back to 2000 where we worked as peers in recruiting at Siebel Systems and grew to trust and rely on one another as Siebel Systems went through several years of hyper growth and major changes.
Later, as Director for Workday I was responsible for a number of critical staffing initiatives with-in sales and professional services. On one such occasion we were looking at extremely aggressive hiring targets that needed to be met in a given quarter and I had limited time to build a team. CareerAve was able to pull a team of 8 together within budget and time to implemented our plan. Their efforts successfully delivered the professional services talent we needed and we met our committed numbers. As a result of this success Workday extended the contract with CareerAve for another 3 quarters to supply recruiting and retained search support in a variety of areas with a variety of resources.
Mark and his team came through for me and continue to be a true partner weather they are engaged in a project or not. This is why as I move on to my new role as VP of Talent Acquisition for DocuSign I have let them know they are top of mind for any outside recruiting support I may have and can confidently recommend you do as well.
