Padraig joins Arete Partners with over five years’ experience in full life cycle recruitment with a specific focus on executive and retained search.
A native of Ireland, Padraig relocated to the Bay Area in early 2011 with the goal of immersing himself in the technology landscape, and he began his first recruiting role thereafter. He has supported a wide variety of roles for both start-ups and established companies placing C-level, VP and director-level talent across multiple disciplines including IT, engineering, marketing and sales.
Key to Padraig’s success has been his passion for technology and dedication to building strong relationships with clients and candidates alike. He feels connecting with candidates and understanding what truly makes them passionate about why they do their job should be top of every good recruiter’s agenda.
When away from the office, Padraig enjoys playing his homeland sport of Gaelic football. A big sports fan, he follows the New York Jets and Golden State Warriors fanatically. He also enjoys travelling and contributing his time to various charitable causes.
