Daversa Partners, has appointed Wendy Colvano, Head of Europe, as Managing Director. “I consistently define Wendy as someone who is biased towards action—she is fearless, she is intentional and she sets the bar high,” said Paul Daversa, CEO. “As the international team continues to grow, Wendy’s ability to step into this leadership role has been a natural fit. Additionally, we have built this firm around a global standard of recruitment, meaning we have unparalleled access and reach to material impact executives, and there is no one better suited than Wendy to deliver on this promise.”
As the founding member of Daversa’s international practice, Ms. Colvano moved from Manhattan to London five years ago and has gone on to work with start-ups across Europe. Her results include VP-C level placements for Deliveroo, Farfetch, Coupang, Zego, Bloom & Wild, and Trade Republic.
“I jumped at the opportunity to lead Daversa’s European practice five years ago as I saw significant tailwinds accelerating Europe’s technology ecosystem along with an opportunity to bring Daversa’s unprecedented global access and relentless process to a market in need of executive search innovation,” said Ms. Colvano. “That being said, I would like to thank Jamie, Paul and the rest of the senior leadership team for making this extraordinary journey possible.”
