Our team. Our story.

Our team combines experienced recruiters with startup veterans who have founded, scaled, and exited companies at every stage.

Our Story

Jennifer Loftus founded Swing in 2005 with the goal of dismantling the recruiting industry status quo. A mentor at a VC firm told her there were only two services to choose from: resume-spamming contingency or “exec-only” firms with big company networks – not the networks startups need.

In 2012, Mandy Edmund joined SwingSearch as a partner to take the firm to the next level. Together, Jennifer and Mandy forged relationships with leading VCs, startup founders, and key influencers. More importantly, they built something with heart.
