AVT was born out of a vision for helping entrepreneurial leaders build great businesses. Devoting ourselves to the success of startups, emerging companies and turnarounds is more than our life’s work; it’s an obsession.

Hiring the right people is part science, part art. Our consistent success can certainly be traced back to rigor and tenacity, but what really sets us apart is a creative spark — keen insight that leads us to solutions that others miss. At AVT, we never run out of ideas.



We are relentless in the thoroughness of our process, our insistence on excellence and our never-say-die attitude. We are tireless. At AVT, we always succeed in finding the right hire for you because we never quit.
