Zintro, Inc. - Hiring a Management Team
Zintro, Stuart Lewtan’s second start-up, just completed a round of financing that was intended to fund a rebuild of the site’s user interface and provide Lewtan the cash needed to hire a first-rate senior management team. But the hiring process had not been easy, reminding Lewtan that recruiting quality employees was hard work. Nonetheless, he found two candidates he was excited about, but each came with their own issues. His choice for CTO received more than one disappointing reference, and the person he had hoped to hire for vice president of marketing may have misled Lewtan on his work history. Would Lewtan have to start from square one in the hiring process, or could he make these two candidates work with a high level of confidence?
