Case Study

Strategic Talent Acquisition: Bolstering Swipeclock’s Leadership with a VP of Sales and Head of Marketing



Inverness Graham Investments, a private investment firm, acquired Swipeclock and embarked on a mission to redefine its leadership team. As Swipeclock prepared to launch new products, the need to bolster its top-tier leadership in Sales and Marketing was evident. The company faced a key challenge – their desire to recruit leadership from the HRIS B2B SaaS space who possessed a profound understanding of the industry.


In partnership with CEO Coleman Barney, Chameleon Collective spearheaded a meticulous executive search for a VP of Sales and a Head of Marketing, particularly emphasizing candidates with a strong B2B HR SaaS background from strong competitors. We leveraged our extensive network and deep industry knowledge to identify and attract candidates who met Swipeclock’s specific criteria.


Our concerted efforts resulted in the successful placement of experienced leaders in the roles of VP of Sales and Head of Marketing at Swipeclock. This strategic talent acquisition proved instrumental in preparing Swipeclock for their product launches, shaping the brand, and driving client acquisition. With a robust leadership team in place, Swipeclock was well-equipped to navigate its growth journey in the HRIS space.

“We worked directly with Sherry and her group to find executive senior level positions. Sherry was attentive, prompt, available and most importantly she had a network that produced quality candidates in a very short period of time. We will definitely use her services again when the need arises.”
