Startups face a variety of challenges in their early stages of growth – it comes with the territory. Chasing milestones is part of the job and it’s usually an all uphill battle. More often than not, this leaves little time for securing the talent needed to scale. That’s where we come in.

Riviera built its name around helping companies secure A-level technical talent. We have a passion for this aspect of search, but we realize that there are additional pieces to solving the startup puzzle. While the need for tech talent is never ending, at some point, new facets of a growing organization need to be addressed. In response to this challenge, Riviera Partners has proudly enhanced the breadth of our business by introducing high-level Administrative and Human Resources search to our scope of services through the acquisition of California People Search, a boutique search firm specializing in just this.

California People Search was founded by Riviera team member, Becki Clague, and has been in operation since 1996. Becki brings over 25 years of experience serving the employment needs of Bay Area businesses. Her recruiting firm specializes in Retained and Contingency searches for high-level administrative and operational roles. Riviera’s recent acquisition of her firm brought Becki to the team, where her partnership plays a valuable role in helping us to provide our clientele with an all-inclusive search offering.

Through this acquisition, Rivera is one step closer to attaining its goal of building a world class “one-stop-shop” search firm where companies can fulfill each facet of their talent needs. Even though we don’t’ see the technical search demand letting up anytime soon, we are always challenging ourselves to add more services to lighten the load of our clients. It’s a tall order, but we’ve got the right group for the job.
