“Hiring in a competitive market is not for the faint of heart and I am really glad that we found a partner in Anu for the GM/MD role that we were trying to fill for Vocera Communications Inc.Just like the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, I feel connecting with Anu and her team for this search was the fastest way to success.
She took the trouble to visit us in San Jose, CA to learn more about the company, our strategy, leadership culture and our values. She learned about our products, our markets, our mission and our competitive edge to help assemble a client profile which she used on her vast network of professionals to identify the short list of right matches.
Her team provided us succinct descriptions of each candidate profiles which outlined their key accomplishments, leadership traits, opportunities and risks laid out in a consistent format that made it easier to get a 360-read on the candidates quickly. This followed weekly updates on the pipeline and Anu’s commentary on the softer side of each of the leaders being reviewed. We were able to close this extremely strategic role within 60 days and are very pleased with not just the end result, but the process Anu led us through.
We generally think of heroes as those who help rescue during difficult times, then there are silent heroes like Anu and her crew, who avert from getting into troubled waters.”
“When we met Anu Parthasarathy for the search, we were impressed with her “can do” attitude and her ideas on what kind of person we should bring on-board. I believe Anu really gets what it takes to hire leadership for the social sector. She is able to convey the right message to attract the best talent from a larger pool, beyond the limited set of professionals within the NGO sector.” READ MORE +
“I believe senior executive search comes very naturally to Anu – she is a born network builder with a good sense for people…. Her complete familiarity with and ease of navigating the “India-US corridor” is truly valuable.” READ MORE +
"Anu has been working with Ather since 2016 and has on boarded several very high caliber leaders across disciplines and spanning multiple industries. She's one of those rare folks who argues (and usually convinces) for hiring for the right fit for ambition, energy and seniority, both ways. At a startup cultural fitment matters more than anything else and Anu has a keen eye for cultural fitment. Her assessment of a candidates fit in the company culture and environment is eerily accurate and something I have come to rely and trust quite a lot on."
