Founder
Armstrong Joiner
Alameda, California

When Renee Hardy started her own executive search firm Armstrong Joiner in 1999, the timing was less than perfect. The dot-com bust in 2000 caused recruiting budgets to shrink. Instead of closing down her business, Hardy invested in technology infrastructure that not only allows her to manage talent more efficiently, but also gives her the mobility to work with clients across the US and worldwide. This innovative use of technology expanded her customer base and allowed her company to prosper.
