Retained Search Success Stories From Q3 for Millennium Search

Top boutique executive search firm Millennium Search LLC ended Q3 2017 with continued success. Since 2003, the executive search firm has been placing top talent into over 200 top venture-backed startup companies including the likes of FanDuel, VideoBlocks, SeatGeek, and Viator (a TripAdvisor company), among many others. What follows are highlights of recent success stories for other successful companies.

Millennium Search sees the bulk of its client success through retained model searches. This continued in Q3 as evidenced by

  • Delivery of VP Sales single-digit hire for Bay Area client providing risk analysis for fraud, liability, and compliance
  • Placement of a Pre-Sales Engineer for the New York City region within 45 days for a Silicon Valley AI startup delivering an e-commerce platform for the retail industry.
  • A Boston area client leading the way in providing safety, security and information services for the automotive industry benefited from an intensive retained effort to deliver their next Director Product Management who will define and introduce their next generation integrated services.
  • A young Silicon Valley Stealth mode startup in the Smart Home space turned to Millennium Search for a Senior Hardware Product Manager with experience building and managing consumer hardware. Another 45-day turnaround.

Clients also engage Millennium Search under exclusive contingency search terms, placing their confidence in experienced recruiters accustomed to filling priority hiring needs rather than diluting their recruiting efforts across multiple search partners. Some Q3 exclusive search engagements involved
