Thrive Light Blue Background.jpg

With our industry background and extensive private equity experience, Thrive truly understands what it takes to excel in this competitive space. We are passionate about helping our clients to find and retain the highest caliber talent to achieve exceptional returns.

Human Capital is the most critical determinant of success. Gail, Susanna and Tad are our secret weapons to building out our organization correctly, quickly and extremely cost-effectively. Together they source incredible talent, ensure we select the right ones that fit together well and get off to a strong, and exceedingly aligned start. The
results are truly impressive and far exceed traditional hit-and-miss interviews and reference checks. It really pays to build the right team, the first time – not only does it save significant time and expense, but your bottom and top line, and personal success, is at stake.
— Andrew Thompson, CEO - Inhance Technologies
I have partnered with Thrive since early 2009 and have worked with Susanna and her team on more searches than I can count. Their professionalism, trustworthiness, and overall intuitive grasp of talent is unparalleled in my experience. Susanna’s background in investment banking uniquely positions her to understand our objectives firsthand; her extensive relationships with C-level and other executives from PE-backed companies, establishes their credibility in the business. As a result, the Thrive team attracts and recruits the highest caliber talent across our portfolio and ultimately helps us maintain a best-in-class retention rate. Thrive’s flexibility in creating solutions that fit each situation also sets them
apart; they have designed programs to address specific needs of our portfolio companies and our firm. The Thrive team has proven time and
again to be our rightful talent partner.
— Joelle Marquis, Partner - Arsenal Capital Partners
Thrive has recruited our CFO, as well as our Vice President of Operations, Marketing Director, Director of Sales and Business Development; and they are presently recruiting an Asian-focused International Manager of Technical Sales and Service. Having served as a CEO for multiple fast growing, private equity-backed companies, I know intimately how sourcing talent drives success.

Thrive’s manufacturing experience gives them a real-world understanding of our business. Their commitment to clearly defining the
position attributes, quickly working to source the position and insisting on continuing to work until they find the right fit, sets them apart from other recruiters. Every single one of their placements has been a home run.
— Mike Ivany, CEO - Polymer Solutions Group
We have worked with the Thrive team for the last couple of years and have placed multiple people, both senior and junior, through them. Their
team values and demonstrates speed, integrity and quality and intuitively understands the type of top talent who excels in this demanding
environment. Thrive listens and spends time getting to know our company as well as all of the nuances attached to each search. Thrive’s absolute commitment to effective processes and best practices makes working with them a seamless experience. They have been a great partner in finding the best talent and providing much needed support in the talent acquisition area.
— Meg Reno, Senior Director of HR - Solvaira Specialties
I worked with Susanna on a CHRO search for one of our portfolio companies and found her to be a trusted partner in the process. She is
insightful about each candidate presented and synthesizes her assessments in thoughtful candidate write-ups that bring the candidates
to life. She intuitively understands the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate and she and her team work tirelessly to find the perfect fit.
— MD, Talent Management at Confidential Private Equity Firm
I had the pleasure of partnering with Susanna Madden, and her exceptional team at Thrive Resources, as SVP Human Resources for a private equity-backed company. We engaged with Thrive Resources to assist us with our hard-to-fill, and executive roles, and they were a terrific compliment to our internal recruitment team.

Thrive Resources is different than the large firms, in that they are interested in first knowing the players, the culture, and the details of the position responsibilities. They are willing to customize their approach to meet their
client’s unique needs. They kept us informed step-by-step, and always presented us with well-qualified professional candidates.

I highly recommend Thrive Resources to any company who is serious about
hiring world-class leaders who can greatly impact the bottom line.
