Introduction
As founder of Silicon Valley Talent, a boutique recruiting firm, I partner with clients, build relationships with candidates, and leverage all resources in matching talented professionals to career opportunities primarily in Software Engineering, Product Management, and Sales Marketing. 

Check out the positions I'm recruiting for at www.siliconvalleytalent.com

Previously, I worked with a lean startup in developing a SaaS-based Advanced Recruiting Software solution which streamlines candidate search process and dramatically increases recruiter productivity. We ran a recruiting agency in parallel using the SaaS solution.

Prior to transitioning into recruiting, most of my career had been in the Enterprise Software industry - consultant at one of the Big 5 consulting firms to industry solutions sales consultant at the largest enterprise software company in the world. I continued my professional development taking on senior sales account leadership role at the #1 Unified Communications company in the world. 

I've ignited revenue through direct & indirect sales managing global Fortune 500 accounts, sparked profitable partnerships in alliance management, and innovated product & market development. I consistently developed new solutions that generate repeatable value and revenue stream.

Specialties: Executive Recruiting, Talent Acquisition, Business Intelligence, Smart Device, Software-as-a-Service (Saas), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), ERP, CRM, Enterprise Project Management, Project Manufacturing, Product Lifecycle Mgmt (PLM), Internet Procurement, B2B Collaborative Commerce (Procurement Marketplace, Supply Chain and Product Development Collaboration), System Integration, Voice-Over-IP, Contact Center, Communications-Enabled Business Process (CEBP)
