The real difference between hitting and missing your revenue goals?

Finding and hiring the best sales talent.

As your Senior Sales & GTM Recruitment Partner, here’s why you can trust me to help you build your all-star sales team.

I help ambitious startups and emerging tech companies find and attract the best talent for their crucial sales and Go-To-Market roles.

With over 25 years’ experience recruiting for fast-growing businesses in the cybersecurity, networking and technology spaces, I understand the importance of getting the right people in the right roles at a crucial time for your company.

When it comes to the crunch, it’s your sales figures that drive your company’s growth. Which is why building an all-star team to generate the results you, your board and your investors need is so critical.

But that can make assembling the best sales team a difficult process for many organizations:

What If

You don’t have the time, resources or network to handle a major hiring operation in-house?

What If

You use a contingency firm or recruitment agency but end up wading through a ton of resumés and LinkedIn profiles yourself, just to filter a (very) long list down to a shortlist you don’t have full confidence in?

What If

Your needs go beyond simply ‘a few heads filling’ – you also need expert help creating the right hiring strategy, accurate candidate profiles and job descriptions that attract only the top talent?

That’s when you need more than just ‘a recruiter’…

You need an experienced recruitment partner you can trust – someone who really gets your company and your culture, and understands how to build YOUR best team.

This is why I work closely with my clients as a collaborative partner, acting as their hiring strategist, advisor and sounding-board.

It’s my goal to help your company define, discover and attract the very best talent for your Sales, Go-To-Market and Customer Success teams.

Dinna takes the time to understand the company. She has a fantastic understanding of the needs of the job.

I trust her instincts… She knows what I will work with and what I won’t!

I know from experience: when you’re building a sales team, your job doesn’t just stop…

Successful recruitment takes time. Trouble is:

You don’t have a lot of time to ‘coach’ a recruitment agency or hiring partner on your company’s specific needs – and you certainly don’t have time to repeat that process with multiple recruiters.

Then there’s the potential cost of not getting the right people into the right positions at the first time of asking. But done right, talent acquisition doesn’t have to be a risky business.

That’s why I work with my clients to define exactly WHO they’re looking for and WHY – so they can rely on me to bring in only the top candidates, freeing up more of their time to do what they do best.

Every organization is different, and every hiring project has unique challenges. So over the years I’ve developed a process that lets my clients and I achieve vital clarity about our ideal candidate profile and job description, and hit the ground running.

And with my extensive network of contacts gathered over 25+ years working in the security and other technology niches, I won’t waste your time on unqualified candidates either.

Dinna is someone who takes time to listen to what you need,

…will cater to what you’re looking for and will make sure an offer to a client is fair & equitable for both sides.

She does her homework and understands the marketplace… she was really good at helping work through the process, identifying blind spots and helping with the negotiation side of things.
