Meet Our Team
With over 25 years of executive search and venture experience, Frank is old enough to remember running his punch cards on the IBM 4341 at 3am, yet young enough to stay curious about the latest technology advances and skunk work projects of our clients.
His favorite role is working with boards and CEOs to build leadership teams that win. Although a hole-in-one is pretty great too.
As both an angel and venture investor, he is a proud member of the Oregon Venture Fund (OVF). He serves on OVF's Advisory Board, Investment Committee, and loves helping entrepreneurial CEOs build successful companies.
Frank has two young adult daughters he’s very proud of and in awe of the amazing young women they’ve become. He loves the outdoors and is a bit geeky for molecular gastronomy, wine and microbrews.
Tom is in his 20th year at the firm and has completed dozens of VP and C-level searches for our retained clients, a testament to his steady persistence, determination and results-orientation.
Tom works out of our Bend, OR office after ten years in Idaho. He is an active participant in various high technology committees, events, and recruitment initiatives. His tall frame has been recruited to fill in on basketball teams and guide fly fishing/bird hunting trips for his “favorite” clients.
Tom earned a B.S. Engineering Arts degree from Michigan State University. When he’s not pounding the phones and evaluating talent for our client base, he is trying his best to keep up on the mountain with his ski racing wife and very active teenage son and daughter.
Successfully running an executive search office requires keeping a number of balls in the air at once. Emily has been with Brentwood for almost 20 years, each year honing her juggling skills. Her interests in technology, renewable energies, new media, research, and organizational strategies help keep the firm sharp and competitive.
When not herding cats at the office, Emily’s engaged at home with her energetic young son. She loves the beauty and creative environment of the Pacific Northwest, where she’s made her home since 1998. Emily earned her B.S. in Sociology from Portland State University and enjoys music, reading, learning about tech, and exploring the city.
