Ken has been brought on to further the company’s technology strategy, utilizing crowd-sourced and historical data to streamline the process of matching the best candidate to clients’ needs and culture. Ken Larson comes with a wealth of experience within the industry, having spent the last 12 years as a software-sales executive in high-caliber sales organizations such as PTC and recruiting technology leader, Bullhorn.
