Case Study


Our client, a leading mobile ad platform with a first-rate geobehavioral targeting technology was looking to continue their speedy growth since launching in 2010. They were looking to hire Director of Sales roles in numerous major cities across the US. Strong applicants to increase revenue and help build out the North American teams was a critical search for them, and they turned to AC Lion to help. 


AC Lion secured them top candidates in three major cities thus far. The sales director for Detroit has been with them for 9 months so far to glowing reviews, and our New York and Dallas candidates have been going strong at 6 months. We are still working on multiple roles with the company, and are looking forward to securing further successes.

What People Say About AC Lion

“If you are looking for new career opportunities in digital media/tech, Dave Carona won't waste your time. Apart from being well-connected, he gets recruiting in the space and knows how to match the right opportunities to one’s skillset, core values, and professional goals. Unlike many recruiters I have worked with in the past, Dave focuses on building the longer-term relationship rather than closing the immediate deal—he is extremely thorough (provides feedback on all opportunities), checks in regularly, and gives honest advice on how best to increase ‘curb-side’ appeal to potential employers. What more you can ask for.”

“Josh's vivacious and genuine personality is a breath of fresh air in the fast-paced world of recruiting. His work ethic is simply incredible and he sets the standard for everyone else in the office. What makes Josh so unique is that, despite his wild success at AC Lion, he is constantly trying to find ways to better himself; both as a recruiter as well as an individual. If you're working with Josh, it's like working with Allstate Insurance - ``you're in good hands.``

“Stacey is an absolute pleasure to work with and she's an expert in the field of digital media. She guided me towards my current position and I couldn't be happier with the results. I was looking for a specific type of opportunity and to relocate to a different city and Stacey was able to dig deep and find opportunities that fit my profile and qualifications. On top of that, she's reliable, responsive, and always makes you feel like she's on your side. I would recommend communicating with Stacey to navigate and gain an understanding of the opportunities available in digital media in your city. I'll always refer back to her and I've made a new friend in the process!”

“Meredith is the best recruiter that I have ever worked with! She helped me get a job within 2 months of my initial inquiry. She provided me with resources that helped gain a greater insight into the area I wanted to go into, which in turn made the interview easier as I knew more about the job I was applying for. When you work with Meredith, she truly cares and does not just throw things against the wall and hope they stick. She takes her time and ensures the job she is putting in front of you is a good fit, prior to even setting up the interview (which is what all recruiters should do). I would recommend Meredith in a heartbeat.”

“Andrew was great to work with while I was looking to make a career transition. It was clear that he also cared about my goals and future, which is all too rare when working with most recruiters. I would highly recommend Andrew to any peers looking to making a move!”

``Alex is the rare sort of recruiter who actually cares about the people he's placing in new positions. Since helping me find a new job almost a year ago, he has been very good about keeping in touch, periodically checking in to see how I'm doing. He took me out for coffee shortly after I got the job, and he remembered my one month anniversary with the company. I've since referred a number of people to him, and they've all told me how much they appreciate Alex's warm personality, dedication and follow-through. He is the best recruiter I've had the pleasure of working with, and I can't recommend him enough.”

“I would like to recommend Michael Adler as a valuable recruiter who delivers with impact and is highly effective within his field. I became acquainted with Michael in September 2009. He found me a position that was perfectly matched with my skill set, career aspirations, and goals. He was very thorough with the process, and was patient with my questions every step of the way. Michael is very knowledgeable and engages well in a personal and professional level.”

“Saying someone has a good work ethic is almost cliche these days, but Mike Giunta is the hardest working sales professional I know. As a recruiter he only brings me candidates he knows will fit my needs. He vets them thoroughly, and as a result I have hired my last three sales reps from him. I strongly recommend Mike as a recruiter or in any capacity that requires an indefatigable sales professional.”
