For over a decade and a half, MatchStar has successfully placed hundreds of VP, Director, and C-Level executives into core leadership positions at the most innovative, venture backed companies in the world.  We are a semi-retained, performance driven executive search firm that overcomes the limitations of the fully retained search model – expensive fees, large deposits, limited candidates, and long lead times.  MatchStar "de-risks" the process for high growth tech companies by:

  • Employing a unique search methodology called "Iterative Profiling" – which combines state-of-the-art email targeting with traditional research based headhunting – resulting in a 90% agency placement/success rate. 
  • Leveraging a flexible “Fee for Performance” model, which minimizes upfront costs, pays on success, and eliminates replacement risk.
  • Understanding the intimate challenges uniquely faced by earlier stage, high growth company CEOs and     their boards.
