Ann is a Managing Director at Focus Search Partners where she brings over twenty-five years of technology market experience building winning teams across the technology spectrum at service providers, hardware, and software firms.

An experienced C-level executive, Ann knows first-hand how team dynamics can make or break a company: she has lived both outcomes. Finding the right candidate means taking a deep dive into her client’s business: the industry, market position and company culture. She works tirelessly to recruit and place leaders with the character, passion and experience suited to each opportunity.

Beyond functional needs, Ann excels at recognizing and matching behavioral traits that will prove successful and has expertise in building a balance of skill sets and personalities at all levels to optimize results within the organization. Having the unique operating experience of directing sales and marketing for a large enterprise, running a company as the CEO, taking a company through an IPO, and selling several, Ann’s understanding of leadership and organizational structure propels her to be an invaluable asset to her clients as she applies that knowledge base to their recruiting needs. Ann has conducted assignments across a broad spectrum of industries serving consumer and enterprise clients in marketplaces, martech, gaming, IT Infrastructure, SaaS and energy, both publicly-traded and privately-held, as well as in select non-profit organizations.

A graduate of Rutgers University, Ann is based in Focus Search Partners’ Silicon Valley office. She currently serves and has served on the advisory boards of several privately-held companies and on non-profit boards.
