News Brief

Jana Rich, a well-known tech recruiter at Russell Reynolds, is leaving the firm after 12 years as a partner to start her own outfit called the Rich Talent Group. Rich, who will co-locate her business in the same San Francisco-area offices as marketing and communications strategy exec Allison Johnson, will be focusing on recruiting for early-stage and high-growth companies in the tech sector. That is different fromĀ her work at Russell Reynolds, which was aimed at large companies. Rich’s initial client list includes Airbnb, Comcast Ventures and Twitter.
