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.
Anna (pronounced On-uh) is a fun-loving bohemian who just happens to be very serious about recruiting sales and marketing talent. That is a good thing for WaveStaff because she unearths all sorts of great talent, candidate leads, and competitive intelligence for our clients. She comes into the office prepared and hustles all day long. Her inquisitive side likes solving puzzles, which makes solving problems for her clients so satisfying. Her active side is all about getting up early and heading to the barre. She’s smart, she’s fearless and has earned the trust of some of the tech industry’s brightest stars. Oh, and she likes lots and lots of black pepper on her food; so, If you like spicy, you’ll like Anna.
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 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.
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 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!

Is it ironic that someone who is so passionate about EdTech is still anxiously awaiting her Hogwarts acceptance letter? Not at all. Kelly is a highly skilled Sourcer-ess who works hard at her craft. When she is not casting talent acquisition spells she is updating her spreadsheets or researching the competitive environments of our clients. Speaking of magical environments, Kelly is a musician who spends her time singing her heart out when she’s not landing people their dream jobs. She keeps the rhythm and will woo you with her sweet voice. That perfectly sums up our Kelly. As a Recruiter she has the smarts, desire, drive and discipline that define the best professionals but it is her magical personality that makes her truly extraordinary.
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.
Most of us have not done search and rescue missions surrounded by fifty-foot swells on the Bering Sea. Most of us have not conducted massive drug busts in South America and most of us have not spent months at sea with 170 other people. Kinzley has done all that and more as a veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard. Speaking of more; she is all about less. She’s a process junkie who loves efficiency strategies and making the most out of every activity and interaction. Oh yeah, she’s from Atlanta where her family owns one of the oldest and best restaurants in the South. It is no surprise that as a professional recruiter she is fearless, has great taste in candidates, works smart and conducts herself with integrity. You’ll definitely hear her smile on the phone as she is a cheerful chatterbox with strong listening skills who digs deep in her interviews and who knows that solid preparation and a keen eye is the key to a proper search. Always ready, that’s Kinzley.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Jeremy and WaveStaff to help us hire an account executive for a new cloud application on-boarding and management product. Hiring strong, experienced cloud sales people for a small company in the Silicon valley is quite a challenge. Jeremy understood very quickly the profile of candidates I was looking for and was able to bring forward a couple very strong candidates in minimum time. We ended up hiring one of his candidates and are very happy with our choice. I will certainly work with Jeremy in future searches and would happily recommend him and WaveStaff to others.
Jeremy is a great business partner to work with. He understand fit on both sides and creates a great bond between the hiring manager and candidate. Jeremy is detail oriented and ensures speed and efficiency of communication so that everyone can make an informed and qualified decision. I’d definitely work with Jeremy again in the future.
I have had a great experience working with Katrina. She has the unique ability to listen to specifically what I need and implement my process with the type of candidates she sources for me. I consider myself extremely detail oriented and sometimes a bit picky when it comes to building my team, Katrina gets that and is able to adapt, be persistent, and get the right candidates. Katrina also was able to take some of the pre-qualifying I normally do and integrate that with her process making my job a lot easier. I have worked with many recruiters in the past and I must say Katrina is one of the best!
I have been working with Laura on a CSM search over the last few months and would certainly recommend her as a recruiting partner. Laura has been a strong client advocate and business partner in my search representing Leadspace’s brand and our CSM role effectively. She listens and responds quickly to feedback and has found and shared with me well qualified candidates. She is also resilient and despite a few hurdles we encountered with a candidate in late stages she did not give up and as a result I was able to recently offer and secure a top notch Enterprise CSM for my team.
