Kommol has always delivered for us, that is we went back to them when we urgently needed a senior hire with very specific industry experience. I have always enjoyed working with them and more importantly they know how to reach the candidates that stretch us and help propel our business forward.

Eldar Tuvey

CEO

""
Kommol are the authority on SaaS search. They understand the business model, they have exceptional access to the best candidates and they have the commercial smarts to add meaningful value at every step of the process. We have successfully engaged them many times and will continue to do so.

Jennifer Sundberg

Co Chief Executive

""
It is critical for a fund like ours to help build up early stage teams and prepare them from large international rounds. We have worked in multiple assignments with Michelle and the Kommol team and they have always delivered high caliber candidates for our portfolio companies.

Stephan Morais

Managing General Partner

""
As Incopro has grown and raised Angel, and then Series A, investment, we have in turn invested significantly in people. In this process, we have secured fantastic support from Michelle and Gary at Kommol. In our most recent recruitment round with Kommol, we were particularly interested in recruiting talent to run discrete sections of the business (product, service delivery and customer success). Michelle and Gary both spent a great deal of time getting to know our business and our ideal candidate profile – ensuring that the hiring process was as efficient as possible. It is great to see that several of the people we hired using Kommol have been promoted and now sit in the senior management team – testament to the strength of candidates that they found for us.

Simon Baggs

CEO

Very impressed with the scouting process - structured, intensive and massive in terms of reach and calibre of the candidates. I've never worked with such a resilient agency until we get to the right candidate. Michelle and Gary worked as a team with me, aligned with what we were looking for.

I was very impressed with Michelle because she really knew the businesses for whom she was hiring. Most recruiters can't answer in-depth questions on product, differentiators etc but I found Michelle quite knowledgeable which gave me confidence in the recruitment process. The other thing she is excellent at is understanding personalities on both sides - the candidate and the company - enabling her to provide thoughtful advice when I was preparing for my interviews. I would highly recommend Michelle to any company looking to find the right hire - skills and culture-wise.

Anita Moorthy

VP of Marketing

""
Kommol’s ability to get under the skin of a role is outstanding. Add to that their experience in balancing the often competing demands of investors, boards and founders in building high-performing leadership teams (in fast-growth tech) and it’s a combination that’s extremely hard to beat.

Jeremy Langley

Chief Marketing Officer

""
I first met Michelle in 2012 when I was looking to leave a big corporate and find something new and exciting. From the outset Michelle set herself apart from the other conversations by really actively listening and playing back what she thought was best for my career - this resulted in five incredible years at NewVoicemedia, a journey I look back on with such fond nostalgia. In 2017 Gary then placed me at SAP and nearly three years later in my current role at Zencargo, both of which have been excellent moves managed with the utmost professionalism. In short, Kommel is, and will continue to be my first call when it comes to sound advice and guidance on both my career and securing market leading talent.

Mark Dando

Head of Sales

""
I've engaged with both Michelle and Gary in recent years, and had very positive experiences. Working with start ups and scale ups, it's so important to understand and match the founder culture with new hires - which is a real strong point for Kommol. They can offer a wealth of understanding about how founders think and work, which means that they present new opportunities not just with a view of the role, but the internal landscape as well - which sets them apart.

James Westlake

Chief Revenue Officer

""
Kommol has been successful in placing me for my last two positions. Michelle and Gary are extremely well connected within the UK SaaS community so they are able to filter through many varied opportunities to the find the right matches. They will provide extremely comprehensive job descriptions and spend as much time as required ensuring candidates have the necessary details both pre and post offer stage. I also recall Michelle helping with quite a few rounds of negotiations on my behalf. I worked with Gary for a few years at NewVoiceMedia when he was SVP People/HR. Gary has plenty of experience when dealing with many of the human aspects of running a company and was a strong promotor of employee career development.

Chris Haggis

Chief Customer Officer

""
I highly recommend Gary and the team at Kommol. I found securing my new position went very smoothly and Gary managed the process flawlessly. Gary ensured I was always well briefed for each stage of the interview process and helped me negotiate a competitive package.

Paul McCann

VP Sales

""
The key was the insights and research you put into the options presented was very thorough and a great match to my skill set and interests. The personal, non pushy service and advice offered was very supportive which in turn made it easier for me to both go through the long interview process and make the decision to change roles.

Stuart Whyte

Chief Revenue Officer

""
I had the pleasure of working with Michelle and her team who helped me secure a CPO role that fitted my skills, experience and career aspirations at the time. Michelle gets product and that transpired from my first meeting with her, and throughout the process. That fact was refreshing, different to other recruiters and critically important to ensure a good fit between role and candidate. I'd recommend Michelle to companies looking to fill executive positions, and to product folks looking for their next leadership position.
