Here is what our clients are saying about us.


We used Genero Search Group to fill our VP Engineering and CRO searches. We did both on a contingency basis so Genero had to compete against other recruiting firms on this. On both searches *all* of our finalists came from Genero. Genero sent the fewest resumes and had the closest matches to our needs. We have since regularly used Genero for other searches and they consistently send us extremely high-quality candidates.

— Brettina Hein, CEO at Pixability

Genero Search Group helped with our VP Engineering and CRO searches. Paul and Bob take the time to understand our company culture and our personnel needs. Most importantly, they represent our brand well in their communication with candidates.  With their help, we were able to complete both searches with fewer than 10 outstanding candidates for each search.  Genero is my “go to” recruiting firm, we don’t work with anyone else.

— Nick Francis, CEO at Help Scout

Paul was instrumental building the core team at Acme Packet. He helped me find two key engineering leads both of which ultimately became VP’s in Engineering. Paul found us many talented managers and individual contributors. He understood the technical and important cultural fit.

— Patrick MeLampy, CTO-Cofounder-Director, Acme Packet, Inc.

Paul was very helpful to me when I was assembling my team at Reflectent and even more so here at Exoprise. He knows what startups need and has the flexibility to structure relationships that will work for a seed round stage deal.

— Jason Lieblich, President and CEO, Exoprise Systems Inc.

Paul is the first person we called when we needed a CTO for Wimba. Paul had worked with us in the past and understood the spec and our culture. He quickly sourced a small pool of candidates who represented different “flavors” of our spec, which helped us clarify our goals. He also included another candidate that he felt would be the perfect match based on his own ideas. He was right. it was an efficient and effective process that resulted in a great hire.

— Carol Vallone, Chairman and CEO, Wimba, Inc.

Paul has been working with TripAdvisor since we were a small startup. Our filter is pretty tight. Paul really understands what will work here. He has probably placed more people, with fewer resumes than any recruiter we have worked with.

— Andy Gelfond / Vice President Engineering, TripAdvisor

I have known Bob both professionally and personally for over twenty years. We both started out in the early days of Wellfleet and were part of its success in becoming a public company. Bob has been a trusted source for many of our portfolio companies at both the executive and individual contributor levels. Bob has consistently delivered quality people and he stands behind his work.

— Jeff McCarthy, Partner, North Bridge Venture Partners

Bob and Paul did a great job in finding my Vice President, Product Marketing and Product Management. We had a very unique specification that is not easily found. They were able to present me with qualified candidates that fully understood our space and business proposition. Their process helped us hire the perfect candidate.

— Michael Campbell, President, SensorLogic

I have been working with Bob for over 15 years. He has been vital to me since my days at Prominet, Arrowpoint, Acopia, and Vertica. Bob has consistently introduced me to highly qualified sales and marketing candidates that have reliably contributed to our success.

— Chris Lynch, Co-founder and General Partner at Accomplice Ventures

Paul and Bob were valuable partners in helping Boston Rising make two critical hires during the launch of our operating foundation. We are ending the cycle of poverty in Boston by clearing the way for the next Rising Class. With such a serious mission, we need top talent. Bob and Paul understood that, and took the time to understand what “top” means to us. They showed us that the right people don’t necessarily conform to a spec or a job description. They guided us in determining what makes a great candidate and a great hire. Paul and Bob were integral members of my team during the process. We are also very grateful to them in deciding to donate half of their recruiting fees back into our fund.

— Tiziana C. Dearing, Chief Executive Ifficer, Boston Rising
