Our Clients Love Us

Reliable excellence is our top priority

I've had the chance to work with Ross on several searches and have found him not only to be professional, responsive and very well connected, but uniquely thoughtful about the goals and challenges we had with each search. It was his holistic approach to finding the right candidate for our needs vs. simply getting a warm body into a seat so he could earn a fee, that makes me recommend Ross so highly

Seth Levine – Managing Director, Foundry Group

I greatly enjoy working with Ross and 680 Partners in building the teams at my portfolio companies. Ross’ deep expertise in the SAAS, digital media and ecommerce industries are particularly valuable. Beyond his domain knowledge, Ross’s tenacity, commitment to the best executives and his never-ending energy, make him a truly great partner to work with today and in the future. Rudina Seseri, Partner, Fairhaven Capital.

I first had the opportunity to work with Ross and the 680 Partners team as a candidate. I was impressed with Ross’ knowledge of the market, his ability to navigate the complicated dance between the board and the candidates, and his professionalism throughout the process. Ross was very knowledgeable about the requirements of the position, and showed great transparency throughout the entire process. He went the extra mile to make sure that we ended up with a good outcome, and not just a quick one. It was a privilege to work with Ross.
