Meet Jeff Hopkins

I'm the integral part in helping my clients accelerate their valuation thru high performing candidates coupled with finding an enhanced career, and future, for my candidates.

Jeff launched his recruiting career in 1999 and has built Arrowhead Partners, Inc. (AP, Inc.) as a premier executive recruiting firm for hundreds of early to mid-staged Venture Funded companies in the Disruptive and Emerging IT sector. Since inception, AP, Inc has solidified a superior reputation due to the ability to bring their candidates select opportunities that are the most ideal for their experience, career fit, company culture, and future growth for what the candidate is seeking. AP, Inc. also focus on bringing their client's premiere candidates that are best of breed in their respective roles.  Jeff's commitment to do what's right for all parties (his employees, clients, and investors), leading with an "other's interest first" approach, along with his persistence and exceptional attention to detail has earned him the opportunity to work with many high performing executives, venture capital firms, investors, and with companies that have experienced stratospheric growth.

AP, Inc's recruiting efforts are focused on all GTM (Go-to-Market) C-Suite to Individual Contributor roles which include Sales, Marketing, Engineering, Operations, and Customer Success. They also will craft search efforts around their client's needs, as often times unique roles are needed to help with the scale and build-out with early to mid-stage startups, so there's not a role or position that is beyond their ability, and reach, to successfully complete.

Jeff graduated from Oregon State University, is a devoted (borderline fanatical) Beaver Fan and lives in Southern California. He is deeply committed and actively involved with his family (wife, 3 children,  the family's "lazy bones Jones" White Lab - Charlie and recent addition Black Lab - Stella) He is an avid golfer, devout student of self-development, and seeks to keep raising the bar and exceeding candidate and client's expectations.
