Our Team

Ron Laneve Headshot Cartoon

Ron Laneve

Founder and Managing Partner

Ron has nearly 20 years of proven recruiting experience, and has built and managed high performing talent acquisition teams and processes. Ron’s key differentiator is that he has been an operator of multi-million dollar business units owning P/L management responsibility.  He approaches all talent acquisition demands from the viewpoint of the business owner and is not afraid to ask tough questions, often challenging his clients to rethink many conventional wisdoms of recruiting.

Ron enjoys the outdoors, especially his new found affinity for Steelhead fishing in the Chagrin River. To relax, he likes to work on his yard or take on a new construction project. His kids new treehouse has been in the planning phase since 2017, with hopes of actually completing it soon.

Ron’s favorite biography is a tie between Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, by Ron Chernow and Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson.
