Our Team


Eric A. Thoreson, Co-founder

Eric began his recruiting career over 20 years ago at Source Engineering (Sunnyvale office), where he set performance benchmarks and became the nationwide top performer. Then he joined Innovative Technology performing higher level searches and narrowed his focus to start-ups in the networking industry. Eric co-founded Netsoft in the 90's. Since commencing his recruiting career, he has billed over $9 million with his clients. One distinction is to take equity positions in client companies, thus aligning the goals of Netsoft with the client company, the hiring manager, and the professional being placed.


Prior to his career in recruiting, Eric was an engineer in hardware design, system testing, field services, program management and account management with General Electric, and a founder in two entrepreneurial enterprises. Eric holds a BSEE cum laude from the University of Toledo.


When not connecting professionals with entrepreneurs, Eric may be found with his family, or playing volleyball, or traveling (44 countries so far) or working with one of several non-profits.
