"The vast majority of recruiters I've worked with take up a disproportionate amount of our time while yielding underwhelming results. Not so with Ranbir and Chief People. Ranbir has helped us fill numerous positions across tech and commercial roles, consistently and promptly providing high quality candidates. As importantly, Ranbir is respectful of working to supplement our process instead of trying to control and dictate it. Ranbir is persistent but never pushy and listens to the nuances we are looking for in a role, and adjusts to meet that need. I highly recommend Ranbir and Chief People."

Founder/COO at Agothos

“I had the pleasure of working with ChiefPeople when I accepted a position with DHL and quickly needed to hire over 10 people. The ChiefPeople team had found people who stayed with DHL, were considered high performers, and many were rapidly promoted. Speed and quality, at a reasonable fee – who could ask for more.”

-Michael Kimmel 

Program Manager

“I had the luck to work with ChiefPeople for our recruiting needs and they very easy to work with, knowledgeable and hard working. The team made sure that we were able to find the exact candidate we wanted and needed. They take a professional, yet personalized approach to recruiting, knowing exactly what to focus on once I told him what our company was looking for. The team made sure that all the options they provided were some of the best talent in the area and still fit our company culture”

-Dave Lukrich

“I met Roger, the CEO of ChiefPeople, at a Bay Area Angels event in San Francisco and was immediately impressed at his achievements. Not only did Roger create one of the largest Angel groups in San Francisco, he also co-founded and manages several successful companies. Roger has a great breadth of knowledge and is extremely connected in Silicon Valley. He's a great person to work with and offers great help and advice to burgeoning startups.”

-Ben Baltes 

CoFounder and CEO at Toybox

“ChiefPeople has played a huge part in helping GAGA grow. Roger's vast network of bringing together active angel investors and his knack for identifying and placing great talent into organizations is second to none. Never before have I met someone like Roger who can strategically bring together great people in two areas necessary to grow any business - fundraising and staffing. I would recommend Roger to anyone and I am glad to call him a business partner and friend.”
