Back to Team

“I’ve worked with Matchstar for over 3 years, and have turned to Matchstar multiple times for sales, marketing, and technical leadership. Carolyne and Tim go above and beyond what is expected and required for a search, and goes the extra mile to really understand personalities involved, and what personality fit will work and be successful for a given search.  Since personality type and fit is so crucial in a CEO-direct report relationship, this is really the kind of search where Carolyne shines above other recruiters and exec search firms who trade in volume...Carolyne, in contrast, trades in getting the personality and cultural fit right for senior execs and start-up CEOs.   I look forward to working with Carolyne for many years to come on my exec team searches.”Josh Stevens
