Brian Lamendola

VP Technology Operations

So many companies focus on using the right phrases and buzzwords when defining their goals, building new business relationships, and recruiting new employees. Modern is one of the few companies that follows up their words with actions, focusing on a unique positive client and candidate experience, doing what is inherently right, and making a difference beyond the balance sheet.

Brian has spent his entire professional career in executive recruiting, focused primarily on operations, strategy, research, and knowledge management.

He began his journey with Heidrick & Struggles, one of the top five global leadership advisory firms, and made a transition into research within the firm’s Consumer Markets Practice. He then moved from an industry focus to a functional one, leading practice and knowledge management for Heidrick’s Marketing, Sales & Strategy Officers Practice. In 2017, he was recruited to join Allegis Partners, an executive recruiting firm under the umbrella of the Allegis Group staffing conglomerate, where he rebuilt and led the research & knowledge management team and contributed to the company’s evolving strategy and operations. In 2021, Brian joined SwingSearch, an executive recruiting firm focused on placing primarily go-to-market executives at venture capital-backed startups and was tasked with taking operations and technology to the next level while leading and growing the research team.

Brian earned his B.S. from Quinnipiac University, majoring in International Business with a minor in Marketing. An avid New York sports fan who was never all that great playing any sports himself, Brian now resides in southern New Jersey with his wife, two sons, a couple of cats, and a dog. The pets like his wife and kids way more than they like him, and he is comfortable with that.
