Harmonic placed our CFO and led the process with flawless grace, professionalism, and the highest standards. We've come out with an amazing outcome for our company - and made a friend along the way. Chris Edson, CEO, Second Nature Find out more about our values
I've had the pleasure of working with Harmonic on two specific executive searches. One to place our CFO and the other to place our EVP of Global Operations. I found both processes to be really productive and ultimately leading to a place where we hired the right person for our business. Harmonic does an incredible job of understanding the culture, the strategy and the levers that move the businesses they work with. Ryan Barry, President, Zappi Find out more about our values
Harmonic really understood the importance of identifying people with a real scale-up mentality who could deal with challenging stakeholders, significant change and limited resources as we successfully pushed towards a unicorn valuation which we achieved this year. Whilst working with Harmonic I was impressed by their industry knowledge in the EV and battery technology industry and some of the complexities associated with the nature of the emerging market when identifying relevant candidates.
