“Tory and her team at Redfish helped me make the transition from a large Fortune 50 company to a technology startup. Tory instructed me through the interview process, and didn’t miss a beat. I felt incredibly prepared and excited throughout the process, and was confident Tory would find me a great fit. When the opportunity at Vivino presented itself, Tory was all over it, seeing the natural fit between my skillset and what Vivino desired, and quickly getting me interviews and ultimately, an offer. Without Tory, I would not have been so fortunate in landing with such a great company. Cheers to her and Redfish!” – Will Pearson
