Because we deliver better sales talent, faster.  Just listen to our clients.

A close friend introduced me to TheLions during our early sales growth, and I'm glad he did. The first we hired turned out to be a Top 5% performer, was promoted, and stuck through our acquisition and to this day. I recommend early startups use TheLions to complement their sales hiring.

Optimizely partnered with TheLions prior to our Series A, when our CEO Dan was still leading sales. Their hiring impact spans our company's AE, and SDR teams. In fact, 5 sales hires that came from TheLions were subsequently promoted as I scaled out our team. I recommend any fast-scaling startup VP Sales or CRO to partner with TheLions to deliver high performing sales hires.
Travis Bryant
VP Sales, Optimizely
By the numbers TheLions has been one of our best sales hiring partners, from our first 5 Account Executives through today with over 200 employees. Their ability to consistently bring top performing sales talent to us led me to discontinue our work with other firms and strengthen our partnership with them to work with our internal recruiting team. I highly recommend any startup VP Talent to hire TheLions to complement their internal team's hiring efforts.

I was at the beginning of building out Check�s distribution channels and was referred to Matt (CEO) through an industry contact. After consulting with the team about our program, TheLions helped me hire one of our first sales professionals. They repeated the success with a later addition to my team. I highly recommend TheLions if you�re looking to hire great sales talent.

COO, Check Inc. (acquired by Intuit)
When it comes to hiring sales talent, I've always thought of TheLions as the iPhone and every other recruiting shop as Android - from four years ago. Their thoughtfulness and data-driven approach brought us candidate quality leaps above every other firm we engaged, saving me tons of time and delivering reps that delivered critically greater sales performance. If you're a Founder in need of elite sales talent to drive in your first $10M in revenue, I strongly recommend TheLions.

I've hired TheLions as a sales leader twice. They have great people, a thoughtful process that makes a quick impact, and refer only strong candidates which saves me valuable time. It also so happens that Lions occupied the #1 inside AE spot on our big team at TRUSTe, for several quarters. Anyone looking to hire a high-powered sales team would be wise to partner with TheLions.
Ben Sardella
Co-Founder, Datanyze
We partnered with TheLions prior to our Series A, to help make a strategic early sales hire. The AE that we hired with them (quickly) turned out to be an immeasurable asset, not only closing a tremendous amount of business but also serving as a leader that shares ClearCare's mission and values. She earned her way to be our VP of Sales and subsequently led the growth of ClearCare to now be the world's largest platform for the home care industry. I recommend TheLions to any leader in need of world class talent.
Geoff Nudd
CEO & Founder, ClearCare
A classmate of mine from Stanford GSB recommended that we engage TheLions to launch our sales team, and I'm glad that he did. They helped us make our first sales hire, a strong-pedigreed AE with a history of top performance who led revenue growth for us for 2+ critical years in our company's history. I highly recommend TheLions for sales hiring help to any founder or CEO.

Our Services

TheLions exists exclusively to introduce elite sales talent to better job opportunities. In that mission, we have helped introduce VPs Sales, VPs Talent, and CEOs at 100s of prominent startups to their companies' best-performing sales producers and leaders.

Our founder Matt's last job was as head of sales at a prominent $30M-backed startup. He engaged countless recruiters and job boards to help grow his team, with shockingly disappointing results. Feeling someone should be as focused as he on identifying, qualifying, and meeting elite sales talent, TheLions was born.
