Daversa Partners Adds Two More Partners

Executive search firm Daversa Partners, which serves the technology sector, has appointed Alex Lebow and Paige Kuderka as the firm’s newest partners.

Ms. Kuderka, who has been with Daversa Partners for over 10 years, joins a long and growing roster of female leaders who are shaping the firm. She is focused on emerging trends and industries and has a knack for finding talent with analogous experiences who bring a diversity of thought to industries being disrupted or built. She splits her time between NYC, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and San Francisco and has industry experience in the convergence of AI, consumer and govtech. Throughout her tenure at Daversa, she has built out the executive teams for a number of start-ups and well-established technology focused companies in these categories. Her work includes C-level placements at Spotify, Eventbrite, Uber, Postmates, Planet Labs, Patreon, SoulCycle, Etsy, Honey, Compass, Matterport, Dollar Shave Club, IonQ, Epirus and others. She has built out teams for top venture capital firms such as NEA, Benchmark Capital, Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Khosla Ventures and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

Mr. Lebow, with over a decade of experience at Daversa, has been instrumental in helping grow both the New York City and Los Angeles practices. For the last 12 years he has worked closely with top-tier VC firms such as Bond, Bessemer, Benchmark, SoftBank, Upfront and Expa, among others. Mr. Lebow has a portfolio of platform and consumer projects, some of his most recent including senior placements at Brex, Hippo Insurance, C2FO, Dapper Labs, Calendly, Routable, 100Thieves, CURRENT, Sprout Social, Hipcamp, Wildlife Studios and Phantom Auto.

“It has been an absolute pleasure to watch Alex and Paige grow over the years, both professionally and personally,” said CEO Paul Daversa. “Their combined dedication to the firm has been apparent from day one as they have forged deep rooted relationships in industry, continuously delivered game-changing talent to their clients, and have always put an emphasis on learning and development across their teams. The impact that these two will have as partners is immeasurable as they will deepen our leadership team’s focus on product-led growth companies and the growing creator economy. I am excited to welcome them to this new chapter of their careers at Daversa.”
