I first hired Jeff in 2002 to help build out my management team. Jeff works at strategic level and spent the time to understand my business before surfacing any candidates. Since he leads the searches himself, he spent the time to become well educated in the computer security industry. Within a short period of time he surfaced a targeted list of outstanding candidates for the multiple searches he worked on. Jeff has an uncanny ability to connect with just about any executive and get them interested in your company. He is a true “meat eater” that delivers outstanding results.

I have worked with Jeff in strengthening the Management team in Arbor over the past 5 years. He is tenacious, incredibly detailed and has the ability to reach in and source security management talent across the breadth of the market. He is a great partner and hands down the best recruiter I have ever worked with – our Company is stronger today because of Jeff’s work.
Jeff is a straight-shooting, hard working and highly personable professional. He knows the security space cold and has built up a huge number of real relationships with strong candidates throughout the cybersecurity industry. We worked with Jeff to find our VP of Product Management in early 2017 and he did a phenomenal job. In addition to coming up with a strong list of candidates in a very short period of time, Jeff was very helpful in managing the whole process and then, equally importantly, he was key to closing the candidate we were after. Great guy – thumbs up!
Jeff is a rare and exceptional recruiter – in fact I hesitate to use the word “recruiter” as he was a true partner and business ally. I viewed (and still do as our relationship persists) Jeff as the ideal executive recruiter – experienced, great interpersonal skills, always looking out for you and trying to understand your needs at a very deep level and never forcing anything but taking the time to make sure every hiring decision is a thought out, well researched, analyzed and specific fit to your needs. The candidates he brings forward are absolutely top notch as is his work throughout the process. I recommend him strongly and will absolutely work with him again – one of the best in the industry.
Managing Director | Warburg Pincus
As a CrowdStrike investor and board member, I began working with McIntyre Associates in 2014, when Jeff recruited two key executives (CMO and Vice President of Engineering). Jeff was hired due to his cyber security domain expertise and long-standing relationship with CrowdStrike’s CEO. He quickly leveraged his network, delivering a seasoned, highly sought after security industry CMO. Shortly after that, Jeff thought out of the box–moving beyond the security domain to deliver a SaaS industry VP of Engineering who brought just what the company needed in terms of aptitude and attitude.
Jeff has been retained again to deliver two more key executives, who will help the company capitalize on the hyper-growth opportunity currently available given the unique products and services that CrowdStrike offers.
