“Each HR search is like a puzzle. It’s exciting to put all the pieces together to find the individual who’s just right for the client company. Seeing candidates’ interest in a position evolve as they realize they have a gem of a HR career opportunity is really satisfying.”
Devin combines his deep understanding of HR generalist and talent acquisition roles with lightning-quick reflexes to produce results for clients. He can often complete searches for heads of HR in 30 days from start to finish. Devin has skillfully managed multiple concurrent searches for numerous pre-IPO technology companies, earning the trust of clients during this critical developmental phase. His leadership, passion and creativity are as evident in his role as an HR executive search consultant as they were when he was involved in sports management and entertainment earlier in his career. SoFi, Thumbtack, and Pinterest are a few of the clients for whom Devin’s drive and intrepidness have paid off. Known for convincing initially hesitant HR candidates to seriously consider potential new roles, Devin balances his intensity with a positive attitude and a sense of humor.
When he’s not working to find the next great Head of People, VP of Talent Acquisition, or VP of Total Rewards, you may find Devin playing sports, on a hiking trail, or whipping up a great meal with his nutritionist wife. He holds a bachelor’s degree in criminology from Sonoma State University and a master’s degree in sports management from the University of San Francisco.
