True Sponsors Gathering of Talent Acquisition Innovators at Viseo Talent Summit

MENLO PARK, CA, February 1, 2016 — Global executive search firm True is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Spring 2016 Viseo Talent Summit to be held Tuesday, April 12, 2016, in San Francisco at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park. The event is organized by Viseo, an emerging brand focused on the increasingly complex and strategic role of talent professionals in the tech economy.

The Viseo Talent Summit brings together the best and brightest technology talent and recruitment executives, along with venture capital and private equity investors, to share best practices for all people-related challenges at the heart of today’s high-growth enterprises.

“Following the success of Viseo’s inaugural Talent Summit last fall in New York, it became clear that Viseo is filling a void for highly specialized executives – those who are tasked with setting strategy around everything from talent acquisition and retention, to onboarding large volumes of new employees while also maintaining corporate culture,” says Joe Riggione, Managing Partner at True. “The talent role is even more challenging in today’s environment, particularly within ultra-high growth technology companies, regardless of whether they are public or privately held. As an executive search firm, we are in a great position to help convene these professionals to discuss their day-to-day best-practices and we look forward to doing it again in April,” Brad Stadler, Managing Partner at True, adds.

Some of the Bay Area’s most well regarded talent professionals are confirmed to speak, including:

  • Sunil Chandra, VP Staffing & Operations, Google
  • Peter Clarke, Talent Partner, Accel Partners
  • Saydeah Howard, VP Talent & Venture Services, Institutional Venture Partners
  • Katie Hughes, Talent Partner, DFJ Venture
  • Randy Knaflic, VP of People Operations, Jawbone
  • Ethan Kurzweil, General Partner, Bessemer Venture Partners
  • Jeff Markowitz, Talent Partner, Greylock Partners
  • Dayton Ogden, Head of Talent & Recruiting, Summit Partners
  • Elizabeth Patterson, Chief Talent Officer, Mohr Davidow Ventures
  • Beth Scheer, Head of Talent, Homebrew
  • Pat Wadors, Chief Human Resources Officer, LinkedIn
  • Evan Wittenberg, Senior VP of People, Box

This impressive list of participants follows the equally influential group of speakers who kicked off the Viseo Talent Summit series in New York, including: Lisa Gersh, CEO at; Joel Cutler, General Partner at General Catalyst Partners; Mario Schlosser, CEO of Oscar Health; Soo Hong, CHRO at WeWork; and Brian Christman, VP of People, Workplace & Sustainability at Etsy.
