Eóin O’Toole

Co-Founder and Managing Partner

As Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Arete Partners, Eóin is responsible for building and managing the team’s success. With over a decade of experience in technology and search, his data driven and process focused search style has served multiple industries and roles with companies across the spectrum of size and maturity. His niche, reflected by that of Arete Partners, has been in mid-level search. Clients leverage Eóin first for mid-level executive search and then work together to help accelerate the success of those executives by helping them find and land the talent to build game-changing teams to drive their companies to greater heights. With a particularly strong foundation in technology roles, Eóin has successfully placed numerous leaders and teams in Engineering, IT Applications, TechOps, DevOps, Infrastructure & Operations, BI, Analytics and PMO.

Born in Ireland, Eóin moved to England to attend the University of Manchester. After graduating he worked providing software and wireless technology solutions for education. Eóin then followed his passion for people to embark on his recruiting career, working initially in Finance and Accounting recruitment in London serving MNC’s such as GSK, Heinz, Fujitsu, and Coca-Cola. In early 2007 he moved to the Bay Area to initiate what would become a multi-million dollar business in SaaS, CRM and BI/Analytics recruitment over 3 years. Most recently he has spent nearly five years in executive and mid-level contingent and contract search servicing emerging growth technology companies (seed-$500m predominantly) and large enterprises alike.

Eóin lives with his wife and young son in California where he keeps busy with his family, friends, rugby and travel.
