Welcome to 1% Better and the interview with Venesa Klein.
Since 2007, Venesa Klein has helped some of the world's most successful companies build out the critical leadership teams that drive their success
As Partner at Calibre One, she successfully places C-suite and functional VP level leaders across a range of consumer internet, e-commerce, CPG, and category-defining technology companies. Klein also founded the company's Purpose-Driven Practice, which focuses on placing executives in growing organizations seeking to create innovation with meaningful impact.
Prior to joining Calibre One, Klein was the senior recruiter at MarketTools, a market research, and technology company, where she was responsible for full-cycle, international, executive recruiting across the company.
Klein was first introduced to corporate recruiting as a consultant at Google where she was recruited to build out their internal executive search function. She began her executive search career at The Pacific Firm, a premier Bay Area boutique firm.
Her practice concentrated on the recruitment of executives for venture capital funded start-ups and established high-growth companies.
Outside of work, Klein holds leadership roles within a number of animal welfare, environmental and educational charities. Her commitment to philanthropy and her two young children keep her quite busy.
