Raj Shah

Vice President

Ketera Technologies, Inc

“Ketera was a silicon valley start-up funded by KPCB. To accelerate our development, we needed to build up a world class engineering center in India. Our goal was to build a center that could attract and retain true product engineers and managers.

We wanted a leader who was a strong technologist, had product vision, and had the start-up DNA to ensure building the right culture at the place. The leader needed to have enough general management capabilities to build a center from the start.

Anu worked closely with me to first evolve the right profile, and then help us choose the best candidate. She presented a mix of options initially, to help us clarify our thought process. The mix had candidates based in US looking to relocate to India, candidates who had already moved to India from the US, and local candidates. It helped us come to our final decision of choosing Sanjay Swamy, who had worked in US but had gone back to India to set up a similar facility for a Ketera-size organization there. Her strong presentation, bringing out why a general management type person was needed in that phase of the company, enabled me to get all our interviewers on-board for the final choice. Overall, we had an excellent experience working with Anu, and a very effective one too as Ketera became the model for all Kleiner Perkins companies looking to set up offshore operations.

I was introduced to Anu when I was looking for the ideal search partner to help me fill a critical role to manage operations at Replicon. I was initially skeptical, having worked with multiple executive recruiters before, but I was in for a pleasant surprise working with Anu and her team. They put in a lot of effort to genuinely understand our business, our success points and what we needed to do going forward. READ MORE +
