Our Story

Allison Tam and Ivana Cvejic met in 2000 while working together at a financial recruiting firm. Unbeknownst to them, the vastly different paths they would follow after would one day result in the creation of the newest and most advanced HR software systems money could buy. Ivana continued within the recruiting field, working both internally and externally as a Recruiting Manager. While gaining invaluable experience in the corporate world, Ivana became so frustrated with the recruiting software her firm used that she often reverted back to her spread-sheets just to get by. During the same time Allison was gaining vast knowledge in technology, building out very complex online financial trading systems and learning the ins and outs of building technology companies from scratch. A conversation was sparked in 2012 and they both recognized the value of their two backgrounds, their passion for HR, coupled with an extreme gap in the HR sector for newer technologies, and the seed for Renhead was planted. After exhaustive research this need was confirmed by multiple HR professionals who have also been very frustrated by their antiquated and very expensive systems. When the system was ready for demos in 2014 the consistent response was………”OMG!”

Allison and Ivana both come from hard-working immigrant parents who have instilled the American Dream values in them from birth. They share a passion for building new companies, helping existing companies grow and creating efficiencies within companies both small and large. They are both problem solvers who thrive in fast-growing environments and always approach each client with a fresh perspective. These personality traits have translated into a fresh, new solution to professionals in need of hiring tools in all industries. The thoughtfulness, integrity, industry knowledge and careful budgeting has all translated into an outstanding and cost-efficient product for Renhead clients. Allison and Ivana embody the American dream and want to help others do the same by helping them grow their businesses. Thank you for taking the time to read about Renhead, we sincerely hope you will give us the chance to give you a demo of our product to see if it might be the right solution for you.

  • Ivana Cvejic, Co-founder

    Head of Sales and Marketing

    Ivana fell into recruiting by accident and was hooked immediately. As a Headhunter Ivana uncovered her entrepreneurial spirit early on by building her own client base from scratch and finding new solutions to their recruiting problems through a consultative approach. Learning to dissect different types of businesses from a talent perspective and finding ways to implement new strategies has always inspired Ivana to go the extra step for her clients. A whole new world opened up for Ivana when she was hired by a client to go in-house, where she built recruiting teams and strategies for Wachovia and Morgan Stanley from scratch, increasing Wachovia’s recruiting efforts by 928% regionally and cutting Morgan Stanley’s investment banking recruiting costs by $10.5MM within her first 9 months on the job. She utilized her natural client relationship skills to convince one of the most conservative and established Investment Banks in the world to implement new strategies, providing a new approach to very old issues, which led to Ivana being chosen by senior management to oversee the build-out of Morgan Stanley’s new Private Bank, hiring over 1,000 professionals in what was deemed “an impossible time to fill” by many, all under the allotted budget. In 2011 Ivana went back to her entrepreneurial roots and started Paul Andrews International, a search firm specializing in the finance sector. Although Ivana has stepped out of an active management role to focus on Renhead, Paul Andrews still thrives today and continues to partner with clients by building new teams for boutique and Fortune 500 companies alike. Ivana’s background in recruiting, employee training and development, client development, marketing and sales, and managing large team build-outs has brought Ivana a unique understanding of the internal and external search process, the frustrations Recruiters face every day and finding solutions to alleviate the administrative burdens attached to a successful Recruiter.
