CEO & Founder
Josh Stomel founded Neohire in 2007, and has been in the recruiting space for "too long," as he would say. He's worked his recruiting & business developer magic for top dogs (Yahoo, Oversee.net and LowerMyBills) and he's no stranger to the start-up scene, as his connections were the motivation behind starting Neohire. Josh is a proud father, husband and a hookah connoisseur. He is the master of madness, and conquers new challenges daily. He is currently advising multiple startups in the LA market.
VP, Operations & Finance
Vivian Stomel runs all Operations & Finance at Neohire. She received her MBA in 2007, and after working for Boeing for 7 years, she decided to marry Josh Stomel, the founder and work closely with him. She is a hard working mother of 3 (1 baby & 2 dogs) and spends her free time pumping iron and shopping at lululemon.
Employee of the Month
Not as obnoxious as this picture suggests (it was Halloween!), Ted helped Josh found NeoHire and ResumeBucket in 2007. After leading ResumeBucket to a successful acquisition, he's returned to bring his expertise not just as a recruiter but also as a business advisor to his clients. Working solely with internet startups since 1999, he's spent time as an Engineer, IT specialist, Account and Product Manager, Business Manager, Sales Executive, and CEO. While most recruiters are trained just to recruit, Ted has almost 20 years of hands on experience within virtually every aspect of the industries he now helps recruit for.
