I just had to good fortune to interview Emily Azevedo.
She’s Vice President of Talent of the prominent growth capital firm Mainsail Partners.
Based in San Francisco, Mainsail leads majority control investments in EBITDA-positive software & tech-enabled services.
Emily joined the firm & works with Mainsail’s portfolio companies on their talent needs, including executive leadership, recruiting, compensation, and assessment.
Prior, she mastered her craft at (my alma mater) Heidrick & Struggles, the preeminent executive search firm.
In this 20-min conversation, Emily reveals the keys to scaling the people part of your growth business. Including the key pitfalls to avoid.
