“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.”
“Anu made it a point to understand the DNA of Model N, our vision and strategy, and was able to to attract the best candidates in a time where Model N was a small and unknown entity in India.
What stands out about Anu is her passion for Model N’s success, and her sincerity in representing us in the right way. She is very forthright in her views, and will not hesitate to correct you if she feels it is not the right thing for the company – a true partner in building an organization.” READ MORE +
“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.” READ MORE +
