Chase Klein

Originally from New York, Chase took his talents to Los Angeles in 2014 and has since not looked back. With a passion for tech, startup culture, and building communities, headhunting and recruiting became a natural career path. “I pride myself in my ability to build teams and cultures, not just fill jobs. If you are looking for a high volume recruiter to submit resumes, I am NOT your guy.” Chase has filled various levels of roles across verticals for high profile startups with a specialization around Seed to Series A companies. In his free time, you can find Chase in Venice Beach bopping around with his little terrier pup.
