As Ben notes: “I approach every search – contingent or retained – with as much care and urgency as hiring my own teammates. I know the marketing function deeply, and I assess how well my candidates have capitalized on their customer knowledge; their ability to drive the business; and their personal character.”

Mr. Foster has experience leading strategic recruitment amidst M&A ventures, business and product launches, enterprise software implementations, organic growth, COE formulations and unexpected attrition. International experience includes APAC, EMEA, Latin America and Canada. Ben holds active PHR (Professional of Human Resources) certification from HRCI, and active CSP (Certified Staffing Professional) accreditation from the American Staffing Association.
