Our team

Jordan Stern

Director & Co-Founder

Passionate about working with the most cutting-edge technology businesses, (but don’t ask her to re-set your Wifi!) Being part of her clients’ journey is what she enjoys most. Nearly as much as she does her hybrid beloved, Cambozola! Loves a niche role. Can’t keep her away.



Roxie Hanlon


Roxie is a diehard Arsenal fan (for her sins) with an unhealthy penchant for classic trainers! With over 11 years’ experience under her belt, Roxie comes with a wealth of knowledge in discovering top talent in the FinTech space.



Lori Bavetta

Senior Consultant

Lori’s first job was at Disneyland……..as Mini Mouse! And no, we’re not taking the Mickey. At 4’11, she spent 3 years bossing it on the GB Weightlifting team & had a dabble in professional dancing. Lori is now focussed on post seed stage scaleups and will work with you to find top people talent.

Katy joins us as a Graduate and will focus on hiring Talent Acquisition & HR into early-stage scale-ups.
Katy sings and plays the guitar (we’re still yet to hear a tune!), only drinks tea out of a white mug, and is organisation obsessive.
