As a founding partner of Cowen Partners, Ash Wendt has drawn on his career experience in sales and executive recruiting to build a vibrant, dynamic firm. His results-driven approach is rooted in discipline and strength of purpose and the belief that Cowen Partners fulfills a need across industries. He excels in developing strategic processes to hire top-level talent for a variety of clients. Ash is frequently quoted in The Wall Street Journal.
After graduating from Portland State University, Ash developed a robust and successful career as a B2B sales professional, selling technology solutions to businesses of all sizes across a range of industries. He made the transition to agency recruiting, growing a reputation for acquiring quality talent in sales, marketing, operations, and finance.
After several years in agency recruiting, Ash realized that most recruiting firms had a narrow focus, servicing either a small regional area or a single industry. Agencies were also often out of synch with modern practices and technology. Developing Cowen Partners Executive Search filled that gap, and the firm has grown to be one of the nation’s fastest-growing executive recruiting firms.
As a founding partner and practice leader for Cowen Partners Sales and Marketing division, Ash has successfully placed high-quality executives in positions such as Chief Revenue Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Vice President of Sales, and Vice President of Marketing, among others.
