brightwheel, the rapidly growing, all-in-one software platform for preschools and childcare providers, knew pretty early on that they wanted to hire a strategic Head of People. The profile was someone who could help to amplify the culture and build scalable solutions—especially around recruiting and culture. CEO Dave Vasen was less interested in adhering to the traditional profile requirements and more interested in builders with strategic acumen.
Allegis Partners embraced Dave's vision and presented a strategy that resulted in a slate of candidates who fit the go-to-market profile and a passion for people. The successful candidate, Leah Fine, has a cross-functional background with both talent and consulting experience. In her short time at brightwheel, she has already made a big impact.
