What can I say about Hank??!! Besides the fact that Hank is a guru in the world of leading edge recruitment, he also stays true to his craft and takes on searches for companies. Hank helped us out at Apollo Group with a number of VP level positions that we were looking to fill. Hank's networks run deep and not only did we fill positions with Hank's candidates, he brought us other talent that we didn't know we needed but ended up hiring! Hank is a true business partner and I would work with him again in a heartbeat!
While the term "visionary" is handed out like candy at Halloween, there are actually very few visionaries in the Recruiting Industry. Hank Stringer, part time evangelist, full time innovator is one of the few who has consistently seen and invented the future. Mr. Stringer. Known broadly for his raw willingness to tell the truth, combines kindness with shrewdness. His friendship is warming, his business acumen sophisticated. If you ever get a chance to work with him, take it.

Hank Stringer has had a long and interesting career. He started recruiting with an executive search firm in Houston right out of college, fell in love with the profession and has never looked back. A search assignment in 1989 required he become an early adopter of the internet to recruit Unix kernel developers for Tandem Computers. He also traveled throughout the US and the world recruiting top sales and technical talent for Dell Computer from 1990 – 1996.
These experiences honed his search skills and led to creating an Internet recruitment solution that became Hire.com an early Internet software company that served enterprise clients around the world.
Along the way Hank wrote a book with Rusty Rueff, "Talent Force: A New Manifesto for the Human Side of Business" that many in the talent management space refer to when considering actions to take when creating talent management technology or process solutions.
Today Hank is back doing what he loves, executive search but try as he may he can't keep his hands off creating solutions and technology to help him in his work.
