Case Studies

A Growing SaaS Firm
with Growing Pains

Oakwood Search was engaged by a fast-growing SaaS company that focuses on the talent management sector. The Firm had recently acquired two software companies in 2018, and shortly thereafter ran into attrition challenges. Combine that with their tremendous growth and the Firm needed help finding top talent, fast. From mid-October to February 2019, Oakwood search was able to fill 10 high level & high priority positions, enabling them to stabilize in record time, setting them up for years of continued growth and success without the headaches that acquisitions all
too often bring.


A Large Private Equity Firm
making an impact

Oakwood Search was engaged by a large Private Equity Firm that owned a substantial portfolio of SaaS companies and needed to top grade the talent across the companies. Little standardization had occurred across the portfolio and acquisitions had caused employee turnover with certain companies within the portfolio. The PE Firm had significant growth plans for all its holdings and required top talent to navigate the challenges ahead. Oakwood Search was able to adapt quickly to all of the different cultures and processes of each Company and discovered significant synergies by recruiting across the portfolio as a whole.
