Testimonials

Vijay Mehra

Founder, CEO at REthink CRM

David has been instrumental in our hiring process over the past few years. From individual contributors to leadership, we’ve worked on all roles for our GTM team (Sales Dev, Account Executives, CSMs, Director & VP-level). It’s difficult to find a recruiter who can come into a small growing company, take the time to develop a true understanding of the culture, and fulfill on our needs quickly and effectively. David does that to the tee. He’s a trusted advisor beyond hiring and I’m looking forward to him helping us fulfill our aggressive hiring needs in the future.

Amy Campbell PhD

Chief Talent Officer at Overhaul

David worked with us to fill fairly urgent needs in two critical positions: Director of Sales and Vice President, Operations.  He presented a perfectly sized pool of top-notch candidates, who completely aligned with our vision and culture, within 1-3 days.  David was insightful, sincere, and provided prompt and concise communication throughout the process.  Additionally, I felt that he was very intuitive in fully grasping what we were looking for, without a need for a lot of time commitment in communication or explanation on our busy team’s part.  We genuine enjoy working with David because he clearly is skilled and committed to the work he does, but he also is genuine/ does not come across at all as simply trying to make the “sale.”

Director of Client Success at REthink CRM

I was recommended to David by one of my mentors, and I can say without hesitation, that he has exceeded my expectations in all the situations that we have interacted and workedtogether. David helped me immensely during the recruitment process. His professionaldemeanor is only matched by his ingenuity. The close rapport he holds with the organizations he works with, make him an extremely valuable point of contact. David possesses an ability to truly connect with the candidates he works with, and provides an atmosphere of trust that naturally allows the candidate to feel confident and at ease. He is very engaging, trustworthy,dependable and sees the bigger picture.

David doesn’t view the hiring process as being a sporting event (“winning at all costs”); instead,he knows that looking for a good match should be “win-win” proposition. His energy and enthusiasm is infectious, and his willingness to take the extra step to help those in need is laudable. Always available, he tirelessly works to answer all questions, provide direction and supply support. I would unconditionally recommend David for your job search!

Enterprise Account Executive at Thousandeyes

I had the privilege of working with David after leaving Oracle and moving to a much smaller software firm in Austin. While working with David, I always felt he had my best interest in mind not only did he have a great understanding of the companies he represented, but my personal pain points and motivation that would lead to me getting promoted to an Enterprise AE within Thousandeyes. I would highly recommend David for anyone looking to take their career to the next level.

Gabe Hensley

Director of Sales

David is an old school hustler who has built his business from the ground up by himself. He is tied in with lots of great companies here in town and will be a nice person to have in your corner as you find your next gig.

Katie

Katie Hirsch

Founder at Collegiate Consulting

I have had the pleasure of knowing David since August of 2016. The majority of my time spent working with David was in a mentorship capacity as I was a Team Lead and then his direct Manager. David is truly a delight to be around – he is incredibly smart, brings humor and lightheartedness to his colleagues, and is mature beyond his years. David was promoted due to his natural leadership, ability to communicate and effectively build relationships with high-level executives, and diligent work and success.

When I think about David’s character, the word reliable comes to mind. In the office he is a consistent performer, even when the odds were not in his favor. David was always the first person I would go to because I knew he would do an excellent job and because I knew he enjoyed stepping up to the plate and tackling more responsibilities.

I first got to know David through our mutual network at Oracle. When I began my search for a Sales role at a fast-growing company, I spoke with David who quickly set me up with an interview at Rubrik. He told me they were about to build an office in Austin, and he helped me strategize on how to highlight my strengths during the interview process. I joined as the first sales rep in Austin and our team has grown rapidly ever since.

Business Development Manager at Oracle

It was so special for me to have worked with David. David is so positive and can always see the light in situations, and had an uncanny ability to keep his team happy and motivated. He’s also extremely insightful with his colleagues as well as his prospects, making it easy for people to open up to him. David’s positive attitude and constant curiosity will bring him to great places, and I can’t wait to see where he is in 5 years. Hopefully our careers bring us to the same place again sometime soon.

Account Executive at Quantcast

I initially met David during our time at Oracle, where we quickly became good friends. When I began looking to take my career to the next level, I called David and he walked me through the steps I needed to take in order to break into an Account Executive role at a Tech company in Austin. (Having him on the ground in Austin while I moved from Chicago was tremendously helpful during this process). His communication, advice, and honesty differentiated him from all the other recruiters I’ve worked with in the past.

Sales Coordinator at RunTitle

David helped me find a position at my current company two years ago. It was my first real experience with the full job application/interview process, and David worked with me very closely to ensure I understood what companies looked for in candidates, how to vet out different offers, how to negotiate with potential employers, etc. His down to earth attitude, his open-mindedness, and his dedication to my understanding is the reason we still keep in touch!
