Corelight is the most powerful network visibility and monitoring solution for information security professionals, helping them understand network traffic and defend their organizations more effectively. Founded in 2013, Corelight is headquartered in San Francisco and has raised $160m from investors including Accel and Insight Partners.
Corelight has almost 250 employees and had announced a Series D of $75M just before the beginning of the search. The business wanted to scale effectively and intentionally through their next phase. This hire would be continuing the good work from a highly respected former VP People in the business who had helped the company grow to this point.
Corelight had built an experienced leadership team of people who had succeeded in corporate environments and had built start-up companies. We needed to find a People leader that would fit well with this calibre of leadership team, while being able to be a custodian of the culture of the business. Corelight mark themselves by distinct cultural values; tireless service, low-ego results, and applied curiosity. We also wanted to ensure the People leader could work well with structured, analytical thinkers.
Loree Farrar was hired as a strong fit culturally, philosophically, and with a breadth of experience across different contexts that demonstrate she can build while playing a role on a proven and serious executive team. Loree was the VP of HR at InsideView over an 8 year period and through an acquisition by Demandbase. She also held senior positions with SunPower, and with Yahoo, where she was responsible for Engagement and Total Rewards.
We had a great experience working with Chris and the team. They quickly understood the need to develop a novel pitch that clearly resonated with the candidates. They impressed us with their ability to screen correctly for a great cultural fit for our executive team. Our expectations of the time the search would take were exceeded and we’d have no hesitation in working with Erevena again.
