January 5, 2016 – Executive search firm Calibre One has added Diane McIntyre as a partner in its New York and Connecticut offices. The search was managed by Rochelle Schumer of R&L Associates.
Ms. McIntyre has over 20 years of experience; she was a managing director at Ramsey/Beirne Associates (Kindred) for nine years, one of the leading internet and technology recruiting firms. She worked closely with the firm’s co-founder, David Beirne, conducting senior-level searches for pioneering companies and investors in the technology, internet, digital media and health industries — including placing C-level executives at Netscape, Microsoft, eBay, @Home, and WebMD/Healtheon. She was most recently a partner at Accelent, Inc.
“This was an exhaustive search effort to find the right senior partner to drive our East Coast search efforts as well as add significant insight and value to the partnership as we continue to scale,” said Dan Grosh, Calibre One’s San Francisco managing partner. “Diane was universally accepted by our team and we are elated she has chosen to join us.”
Based in North America, Europe, and Asia, Calibre One is an international recruiting boutique specializing in working with technology-centric businesses at all stages of development. The firm has recently represented recognizable Fortune 1000 companies, including AMEX, Flex, eBay, Expedia, NetSuite, TripAdvisor, Symantec, Fiserv & Hearst.
In August, Calibre One strengthened its presence in Asia Pacific with the additions of Ben Burrell as managing partner in Sydney and James Gathercole as partner in Shanghai. Mr. Burrell most recently founded tech start-up company Opp Agent. He has a long executive search career and previously led the Asia practice of Braithwaite Steiner Pretty (BSP), a boutique search (now Odgers Berndtson), based in Singapore. Mr. Gathercole was previously a partner with Sheldon Harris Consulting and before that was managing partner with TRANSEARCH Australia.
