“Gary brings a unique knowledge of the start-up environment that perfectly fits HIEC’s focus on locating and placing transformative talent with diverse experience,” commented Richard Brennan, Global Managing Partner at HIEC. “As more established firms are looking to bring disruptive, entrepreneurial leaders on-board, and vice versa, start-up founders are looking to exist and transition into mature businesses, Gary can achieve much more success for his and our clients with HIEC’s global presence and access to talent pools within various business stages.”
