2019 Year in Review: Growing Companies and Advancing Careers

The Betts Team
December 18, 2019

Ah, the holidays. It’s a time for family, hot drinks, and giving. It’s also your last chance to close that last big deal and hit your annual quota, even though December is only halfway over – but let’s take a break from thinking about that. For now, we’re looking back on a year full of success stories for our recruitment firm and our partners, and calling out the new resources available to those looking to grow their companies or careers.


This is our 2019 year in review. Before you head home for the holidays, and spend the next week in your hometown semi-consciously avoiding people you went to high school with, join us for this look back on some of the highlights of a great year.

1. Betts Connect: Your favorite recruitment firm is now a platform, too

This year we brought our network of talented professionals online with Betts Connect, closing the gap between exciting companies and their perfect hire. Professionals can showcase their top accomplishments and other key info, and get their resume to the top of the pile. Hiring managers can get a much more holistic sense of a candidate’s viability, giving them a head start on the interview process.

We worked hard on Betts Connect throughout 2019, and are thrilled to see it already optimizing the hiring process.

2. A growing leadership team


We spent much of 2019 ramping up and diversifying our offerings to our partner companies and talent network. These efforts required a major expansion of our leadership team. In the last year, we’ve brought on:


  • Koka Sexton, Vice President of Marketing
  • Charisse Fontes, Vice President of People
  • Kendra Morales, Vice President of Sales Enablement
  • Drew Glover, Head of Betts Connect


These leaders are enhancing our ability to make career dreams come true and empower companies to reach their goals. And they’ve got exciting plans for next year.

3. Tech Crawl: Crawling from coast to coast

Connecting companies through a recruiter or an online platform is great. But we’ll admit that the most fun way is having professionals and companies connect in person at a pub crawl-style networking party. That’s why we hosted two Tech Crawl events – one in San Francisco and one in New York – this past summer and fall. Thousands of talented professionals toured the offices of exciting tech companies to mingle with leaders over food and drinks. Each event was a night to remember.


Wondering if there are any open roles at any of our exciting Tech Crawl host companies? Give us a shout.

4. Glowing feedback on G2

We were thrilled, this year, to be rated on the B2B user review site G2 as the top recruitment firm in our space. We always work hard not just to make our partners successful, but to give them a positive experience along the way. Our G2 rating tells us we’re right on track.


What about next year? As we look toward 2020, we see nothing but good things. Keep your eyes peeled for some new hiring success stories. And if you’ve got plans in 2020 to scale your team to new heights or take the next step in your career, you know where to find us. Happy holidays from all of us here at Betts Recruiting.
