The smartest Private Equity investors have added whip-smart heads of Talent to their in-house teams.

Because investing is one thing… But attracting Rockstar teams to do something with that funding is another.

Here’s Exhibit A.

Based in Palo Alto (ground zero of the talent war), Kelly Carlson is Head of Talent with Symphony Technology Group. She leads the firm’s talent efforts & works with STG’s portfolio company CEOs & leadership teams to crush the number.

And she’s well-qualified to do it.

Kelly joined STG from TillmanCarlson, the retained executive search boutique where she recruited CEOs, CFOs, CTOs. (Say that 3 times fast!)

She mastered her craft during 8 years at Russell Reynolds Associates as one of the early members of the firm’s technology practice.

I had a chance to speak with Kelly about how to find the best candidates, how to land them, and... probably most important these days…how to keep them.

If you have 20 minutes, it’ll be well spent on this one.
