Global Recruiters of San Ramon is a full service, highly focused Executive Search firm in the heart of Silicon Valley. We have successfully completed a wide range of senior searches for technology companies in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. Before establishing our agency, we spent 28 years in the Tech industry, "walking in the shoes" of many of the hiring execs we support today, and building a network of highly valuable connections to world class candidates.

"We engaged GRN San Ramon at a critical time in our company’s evolution; rapid product line expansion meant we needed someone uniquely qualified to deal with strategic operations and supply chain challenges, plus, we wanted someone that was passionate about clean energy vehicles and who could bring global experience and cutting edge operational thinking to the company. Adriaan’s approach was very focused, the execution swift with no fuss. He offered an affordable fee structure compared to the traditional retained firms and managed the process end to end. We appointed a highly experienced candidate who loves motorcycles and cars, drives a Tesla and fitted our culture perfectly. It doesn’t get much better than that!"

-Richard, CEO, Clean Energy Automotive Co.

"I have had the opportunity to work with Adriaan over the last decade and consider him a world class executive and advisor. We first worked together at a highly successful hyper-growth startup that we took public together. Since launching his executive search business in 2008, he has placed several key executives for me. Each search comes with strategic counseling that could only come from someone that has been on senior management teams and understands the difference the right hire can make. I have also worked with Adriaan to assist in my own career transitions. He comes with my highest recommendation."

-Mike, President and Global Sales Leader
