San Francisco, CA, July 6, 2023 – Riviera Partners, the leading global executive search firm specializing in executive leadership placements in technology, product, and design talent, has welcomed back Jeff Campbell as a Partner in its Private Equity-backed practice.
Campbell originally joined the company in 2018 when his recruiting firm, Alpha Advisors, merged with Riviera Partners. Campbell was a Partner in the Private Equity-backed practice at Riviera before leaving in early 2023 for Bespoke Partners.

Before this, he led the Technology and Operations practice for The Fiderion Group, specializing in recruiting information technology professionals for financial services companies.

While at Heidrick & Struggles, he worked as an in-house technology recruiter at Citadel Investment Group in Chicago, IL. Additionally, he was the London-based Director of Strategic Sourcing for iXL. Jeff began his executive search career as a Senior Associate at Korn/Ferry International.
