TOP executive TALENT

The executive leadership team can chart a path to failure, astronomical success, or anywhere in between. Our Affinity team has years of experience filling C-Suite and leadership roles with people who transform the future of their organization.


No startup or small business has ever succeeded without revenue or without clarity. We bring the top 40% of leaders to the table – the ones who don’t apply for job postings – who create revenue and clarity for the future.


Our recruiting team has decades of collective experience in matching leadership to company needs, across a variety of industries and verticals. Whether your business is backed by VC or PE money, or is bootstrapped, we have worked with leadership teams in each situation.

Networks are great, but when you rely on job postings and personal networks for recruiting, you’re missing out on nearly half of the available talent pool. Affinity fills that gap and ensures that you’re not overlooking your next potential superstar.

We’re not here for the first placement. We’re here so that after the first placement, you don’t have to stress about talent acquisition, because you know you have us in your corner. We succeed when you succeed.

Roles We Fill


Small businesses and startups often can’t overcome a CEO who isn’t the right fit for the job. We help owners and investors ensure the fit within the most important position.


The right COO (or Integrator, to use Traction terminology) can make every bit as much impact on a small business as the CEO does. We help ensure CEO/COO fit in order to maximize that tango between visionary and integrator.


If you don’t have a top line, you won’t have a company for very long. Sales is all about volume and action, but there are many nuances to selling in certain industries versus others. Affinity has placed sales leaders in tech, broadband, industrial, automotive, cybersecurity, third party logistics, and healthcare verticals. This is another important position to get right.


Technical leadership defines the product of the business (and in tech companies, the value proposition).


Internal HR and TA teams sometimes assume that Affinity is a replacement or competition for them, which couldn’t be further from the truth. We supplement these teams by taking the worst and most difficult problems away, so that they can thrive with a reasonable weekly load. As the saying goes, “culture eats strategy for breakfast.” The right People leaders build culture, which we define as the habits of leadership that get repeated by others in the company.


The right CFO pays for themselves many times over with shrewd financial management. Cash flow is king in small business, and the right CFO can often determine whether the company is financially drought-resistant or not.

I’ve seen the best and worst with recruiting companies, and the gold standard in my mind is Affinity Recruiting. In any business, its success is built on the backs of the people within the organization, and Rob has some of the best and brightest in the industry. I’m happy to speak with anyone directly if they are considering a partner in their firm’s recruiting efforts. Highly recommend!
