MELISSA GAVIN

VP, Talent

Melissa is Vice President of Talent at OpenView where she focuses on identifying and recruiting outstanding individuals for OV’s investment team.

 

Providing hands-on and specialized support for each of our portfolio companies is how OpenView proves their dedication to the mission of improving people’s working lives. Innovating on the investment model to prioritize people above all else is why I chose OpenView.

 

Prior to OV, Melissa was a Principal at True Search, a globally retained executive search firm, where she focused on placing investors across levels at the world’s top Venture Capital, Growth Equity, and Private Equity firms. She also spent time at Ratio Advisors, a boutique recruiting firm, where she also focused on investment professional hiring across the private equity landscape. She began her career in sales and trading, as a member of the Equity Derivatives team at Nomura.


People

Our people, here to help yours.

In March, to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we temporarily closed our office in Boston and became a fully remote team overnight. We all miss being in the same place together, but we’ve adapted to the current environment and have fully embraced Zoom and Slack so we can stay as connected as possible.
