Europe & APAC Expansion
As North America’s leader in sales recruitment – we are excited to announce expansion into 2 highly complementary markets: Europe and Asia Pacific. With our technology clients becoming more globally focused, our ability to expand our candidate reach to these well-established technology hubs ensures our ability to further solve some of their most critical business challenges: finding top sales talent at every career level and in every customer-focused discipline, throughout their global operations.
Leading the way in these markets is long-time Sales Talent Agency leader, Dean Mitchell (Europe), and welcomed alumni Paul Dimond (APAC). These experts in sales recruitment strategy will ensure Sales Talent Agency’s unequalled reputation carries into and is further enhanced in these strategic posts for Europe and APAC respectively.
While this expansion will start small and highly measured, we are confident that our footprint will grow with each passing month and year. For the love of sales.
Dean Mitchell – Managing Director, Europe
Dean has 14 years in agency recruitment and 12 years in B2B sales and leadership. The majority of his recruitment experience is within the sales function ranging from junior SDRs, Account Executives, Sales Directors, and VP executive-level searches.
The primary vertical that he has worked within has always been within technology & software, with a particular focus on Fintech, Cybersecurity, and ICT. Client companies have ranged from early Series A stage $1M revenue companies, to major global enterprises with $12.5B – $77B in revenue.
Dean attributes part of his success to STA’s DNA/PRO™ framework. Keeping focused and resilient on the challenge at hand (Drive). Building trusted and mutually beneficial relationships with clients (Nature). And, being a subject matter expert in the field of recruiting and sales in general (Acumen).
“I’m excited by the challenge of opening up a new geographic market and returning to my homeland. For the first phase of this expansion, I am focusing on the United Kingdom and Ireland geography, and building out my local recruiting team. Phase two will include adding multi-lingual team members to cover other key European areas like France and Germany. For the love of sales!”
Paul Dimond – Managing Director, APAC
Paul has almost 20 years of experience uncovering and developing relationships with Commercial and Enterprise Account Execs, Pre Sales/Sales Engineers, and Sales Leaders in Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore, and North America.
Throughout this period, he has helped companies launch with “first on ground” hires then scaled out teams across APAC. Trusted by some of the world’s most highly regarded CRO’s, Country Managers and VP’s, most of these clients landed in the region as virtual unknowns but have gone on to achieve ongoing success with large-scale IPO’s and record-setting stock price growth.
Paul attributes his personal success to sincerity and developing a deep knowledge of each client’s business and value proposition.
“I’m excited about bringing STA to APAC as I genuinely believe in our value proposition and ability to find, engage, assess and secure the very best talent for our customers. The market is unequivocally the most competitive I’ve seen in 20 years so our partners are relying on us more than ever to grow. Working in North America, Europe, and APAC means we can be a truly global partner to companies who need to leverage trusted relationships when launching and scaling foreign markets. For the love of sales!”
