About

Safire Partners is the leading technology executive search firm in Southern California with a rapidly expanding national footprint.

We work primarily with emerging growth companies and more than half of our clients continue to leverage our services on multiple searches, proving that the value Safire Partners provides is unmatched in the marketplace.

Our clients range from disruptive venture-backed companies to multi-billion dollar public enterprises. No matter the size of the organizations we support, our process remains the same — extreme attention to detail, complete transparency with regular status reports of all our activities, a thorough canvassing of the marketplace, and in-depth, data-driven analysis to unearth the best possible talent for our clients.

Safire Partners

Todd Gitlin founded Safire Partners in 2006 to realize a vision that relationships are the most important asset to an emerging growth company. By continuing to leverage this philosophy in all our interactions, we have become both the leading search firm in Southern California, and one of the fastest growing firms in the country.

Aaron Zeeb joined in 2014 after 6 years as the head of recruiting at SpaceX supporting growth from 100s to 1000s of employees. Safire is now a team of 20 recruiters and researchers taking on 100+ executive search assignments annually.

Safire Partners continually looks for opportunities to invest in their clients, and since 2006 has invested in over 40 clients by deferring search fees for equity.

Since the firm’s founding, Safire Partners has successfully recruited more than 700 executives.
