Gene Zaccor brings to the Vantage team over 18 years of success in high-tech executive recruiting for companies in the Enterprise Software, Media, Internet Security and Financial Services Industries. He excels at proactively managing and leading time-sensitive searches, developing targeted search plans, and identifying and sourcing exceptional candidates.

Prior to Vantage Partners, Gene served as Director of Recruiting for Audiobase, where he was instrumental in building the foundation of the marketing, sales, professional services, and technology teams by recruiting executives and high-quality talent to the company. His direct candor and timely responsiveness has been widely accepted as nothing less than the best.

Gene graduated Magna Cum Laude from St. Johns University with a Bachelors Degree in Economics.

We retained Vantage Partners for a critical vice president search that had a very high bar and, heretofore, had been extremely difficult to find. In record time and with incredible attention to detail regarding our needs for the right executive, Audrey Shuster and Gene Zaccor brought us the talent, quality and experience that we were looking for in our VP of Media Consulting. I highly recommend Audrey and Gene—The Vantage Partners Team—for key executive hires, particularly those with a high bar and critical time needs.

Former EVP, COO, MarkLogic

One of our clients refers to Gene as “Genius,” a word that amply describes both the man and his search execution.

A Vantage colleague

Gene has been an amazing executive recruiter over the last few years. He is very good at interviewing the client very carefully, calibrating and then doing the hard work of getting candidates with the right profile. He is very good at creating a sourcing report each week which is very structured and thorough. Gene also has deep expertise in product marketing and management.

CEO, Findly

We greatly appreciate the passion that went in to finding the right candidate for our services leadership. Audrey and Gene have adopted Intapp as their own and we are fortunate to have this dynamic team looking out for us. We truly value our relationship with them and the fantastic talent they help us find.
