5Analysis and statistics for each hire

Emerald have a refreshing style and approach in dealing with their clients. They maintain a high degree of professionalism in a very consultative style, which worked well for me. They communicate regularly, but without being overbearing - a tricky balance to achieve in this industry. They work with top tier organisations and if you receive a call from Emerald, then they’re definitely worthy of your time and attention.

Mark Simmons – Sales Director, Major Channel Partners, Skybox Security

Emerald were chosen to deliver a number of key strategic hires for Alcatel-Lucent/Nokia across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Alcatel chose Emerald because of their specialisation within the communications market place, combined with their knowledge and experience of hiring across this region. The team at Emerald were quickly able to establish a target list of organisations and individuals, and were able to make the hires in a short timescale. Alcatel-Lucent/Nokia continues to partner with Emerald to build the region, and I would strongly recommend them for any key hires.

James Herriotts – Executive Recruitment Manager EMEA, Facebook (previously Alcatel-Lucent)

Emerald are really able to question and understand my challenges and my company culture, and get to grips with my recruitment needs. They have now placed several people within the South Europe organisation, and I am confident with their judgment. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Emerald’s services again, and in fact they are now one my favourite partners.

Denis Gadonet – VP of Southern Europe, FireEye

In the short time that I worked with Emerald, I’ve been greatly impressed by their
professionalism and drive. From the beginning, Emerald clearly explained every step along
the process in a recent job search, and did a great job matching my skills with the role. I’ve
never felt so prepared or so comfortable in a job search, and Emerald played a major role in
our mutual success.

Robert Arandjelovic – Director Product Marketing EMEA, Blue Coat Systems

Since our first introduction to Emerald Technology in January 2017, the team invested significant time to learn about our business, our growth strategy, and our unique requirements when launching a direct presence in the UAE. In less than one year, Emerald helped us recruit a brand new world class team in roles covering enterprise sales, inside sales, presales and services, and are continuing to support us as we open up new positions to support our customers in UAE and across the GCC.

Mark Peet – VP Emerging Regions, AppDynamics

The Emerald team has been an invaluable partner for us as we scale our global operations. From the onset, they took the time to become a trusted partner for us by seeking to fully understand our business, our product, and our value add in each specific region. The have been critical to our growth across sales and customer success in multiple countries and regions, including ensuring the placement of a leadership team in EMEA. Their commitment to understanding each position, hiring manager needs, and unique processes has allowed us to truly utilize Emerald as an extension of our team. As our exclusive search partner, I couldn’t be happier to continue to work with them as we grow.

Kate LaGarde – Recruiting Manager, CloudHealth Technologies

Having worked with Emerald at Alcatel-Lucent prior to their acquisition by Nokia, it seemed natural to continue the relationship as Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise became a separate organisation spearheaded by new investors. Emerald have delivered for us on projects from individual contributor up to C-level in numerous regions globally. Their communication, professionalism and ability to source top quality candidates have led them to become our preferred retained search partner globally, and I am pleased to continue our partnership moving forward.

Maarten Huntjens – Global Head of Human Resources, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise

Having worked with Emerald whilst at Terracotta, it seemed a natural choice to choose them again as my Search Consultancy. Over the course of 12 months, Emerald have placed 18 individuals in to the business, from Sales and Presales, to Evangelists and VPs. They have also conducted this on a truly global basis making placements across EMEA, the US and APAC. They understand the quality of individual we require, and take a large burden away from my daily workload. I would recommend their service to all high growth software sales organisations.

I have been left with a very positive impression of Emerald's work. They have an extensive network within our market space, and all candidates presented have been of a very high quality. Emerald fit none of the off-putting stereotypes that I have often experienced with third party recruiters, and I definitely intend to work with them again.

It's no secret that we at CyberArk work with a number of recruiters, but for me, Emerald Technology is number one and is my preferred supplier.
