March 19, 2013 – CTPartners Executive Search Inc. has said that Dayton Ogden will lead a new initiative, CTGrowth Partners, a recently established division of CTPartners focusing on executive search for high growth companies, typically venture capital or private-equity backed. He will be based in Silicon Valley. Mr. Ogden was formerly one of the co-founders of Fortis Partners, where his search practice focused on high-growth, venture or private-equity backed technology companies and placing general partners with both venture capital and private-equity firms. Before co-founding Fortis, he was with Spencer Stuart where he executed senior-level searches for emerging technology and media companies. Brian Sullivan, CEO of CTPartners, said: "Small, high-growth companies typically require a different involvement with their search partners due to the uniqueness of the candidate population. Dayton has excelled at this and is one of the top Silicon Valley search professionals. We are pleased to have him head CTGrowth Partners."
