Stephen Wachter

Stephen has been successfully recruiting senior engineering executives for several high-profile Silicon Valley companies, including Google and Yahoo!, for over a decade. During his long-time association with Yahoo!, he became the exclusive external resource for all technical executive recruiting and placed over thirty individuals there at the SVP, VP, Sr. Director, and Chief Architect levels. Additionally, he has successfully completed searches for several smaller, venture-funded start-up companies such as NetSeer and Agile Minds.

Prior to starting his own firm, Stephen was General Manager at the BridgeGate Group, the largest executive search firm in Silicon Valley with a staff of over thirty-five executive search consultants. Before his promotion to General Manager, he managed both the engineering and the marketing disciplines. He began his career at BridgeGate as an executive search consultant.

Earlier in his career he worked for the Ward Consulting Group, an Organizational Development Consulting Firm. As an inside consultant, Stephen was able to gain some perspectives on how the most effective emerging companies were able to successfully "tell their story" in a way that attracted the best talent available, while at the same time "actualizing their story" by creating environments that effectively retained those same talented assets.
