  • Matt Herman


    Matt likes the thrill of the hunt – finding the perfect match of background, skills, and personality. He spends his day on the phone with executives digging for important information that will better qualify the match… and he has fun doing it. Prior to founding WaveStaff, Inc., Matt spent five years with Hall Kinion, a well-respected information technology placement firm, where he won multiple sales awards for both account management and recruiting. Before that Matt spent most of the 90’s working for Anderson Reynolds Sports in Atlanta and San Francisco. They were a leading agency that represented NFL players and coaches as well as several MLB stars. He dealt with attorneys, GMs, athletes, spouses and shoe companies. He lives five minutes from the office and loves where he lives and works. He’s active in the community and proud of the fact that he’s an Eagle Scout.

  • Jeremy Turpen

    Executive Recruiter

    Jeremy has always liked to go big. He grew up skiing with Olympians, has leapt from the world’s highest bungee jump, ran marathons, summited high altitude peaks and snowboarded in Antarctica. Professionally, Jeremy helps his clients go big by finding executives and building teams that outperform the competition. He is a seasoned executive recruiter with an almost sixth sense about what will make a perfect match. Leaders at both early stage startups and established public companies regularly rely on Jeremy. He has earned their trust by refusing to give up and delivering time and time again when others can’t. Fair warning to great candidates in MarTech, AI, Enterprise software and other SaaS industries: Jeremy can and will find you. Day or night, business or fun, this man is relentlessly working it.

  • Anna Hall

    Senior Executive Recruiting Manager

    Anna Hall adds that little extra heart and soul …and polish to our workplace. She is quite British with her quirky humor and resolute disposition. She is also a well-rounded, accomplished and informed citizen of the western world having gone to schools in Boston, Paris and Silicon Valley. One of her great skills is in getting to the heart of the matter and finding solutions to problems. Problem-solving is no easy thing and to make it look effortless like she does is so very refreshing. Not surprisingly, clients and candidates like her because she is smart, resourceful, authentic AND she has that charming accent.

  • Laura Wilson

    Executive Recruiter

    Tall and stylish, cool and charming, and smoother than a pane of glass are not the normal descriptors for someone who loves and celebrates geeks. Just speaking with Laura makes you feel brighter. She genuinely enjoys working with hyper-talented startup executives who are building great teams and solving real problems. Those same startup executives know her to be an exceptional listener and that her thorough approach to executive search will weed out the pretenders from the performers. Talent acquisition is not the only area that Laura exhibits great taste; she also has serious culinary skills which her colleagues at Wavestaff relish. Get to know this happy foodie and you’ll be as sweet on her as we are.

  • Katrina Wagner

    Executive Recruiter

    Katrina traveled a long way to get to WaveStaff. She started in Philadelphia and then headed south, way south, all the way down to Kenya south. Eventually, she paddled her way to California where she is a SCUBA loving, rock climbing, beach volleyballin’ bundle of positive energy. She loves mac n’ cheese, tart IPAs, and correcting our word choices. We let her get away with being the grammar police because she keeps finding so many, many great candidates for our clients. Katrina is absolutely fearless and brings tremendous energy and ability to daily recruiting tasks. She is authentic, smart, fun, and we really don’t think there is ANYTHING she can’t accomplish. If she thinks you’ve got game then Game On!

  • Natalie Oliver

    Executive Recruiter

    Natalie values authentic connection and truly partnering with each candidate and client to find them the best match possible. Not only is she an excellent recruiter but she is also an exceptional member of her community. She has won multiple community service awards and cares deeply about people reaching their full potential. The way she mixes high spirits, intelligence and motivation is really inspiring. She speaks well. She writes well. She is just a tremendous communicator and advocate. Those are, of course, hallmarks of an exceptional recruiter. She’ll not only make you feel good short term, but she’ll deliver the long-term results that make a difference. Natalie is the change you need.

  • Zuheir Tleimat


    Zuheir knows all about the search for the perfect wave; whether it be at one of the many point breaks in Santa Cruz or finding leaders for a disruptive Big Data startup. Curiosity is his strength and he digs deep with candidates and clients alike to qualify the best match possible. And when he isn’t scouring the coast or LinkedIn, Zuheir may be off eating a burrito, playing jazz piano, designing clothes or daydreaming about his next international destination. He really does have unique talents and he is an excellent recruiter. Whatever your next perfect wave is, Zuheir will help you catch it.

  • Maud Duchac

    Sr. Recruiter

    Great athletes and performers unconsciously merge situational awareness into action. They make the hard look easy. We used to say that they were “in the zone,” now we say they have flow. Whether Maud in on a mountain bike or surfing or helping our clients and candidates she definitely has flow. For much of her life, she grew up exploring the rich cultural and educational diversity of Brooklyn. Now she is exploring the mountains, beaches, and startups of the west coast. She excels at understanding and communicating with all types of people and effortlessly connects the dots. She really does make the hard look easy. She has flow.
