“I love helping companies grow, and that is the core of what I do, how I think, and how I work. Companies are the people who power them. I strive to find the best people and connect them with companies where they will add real value.”




CINDY CAPONE is a leader in strategic talent acquisition and development with a history of successfully supporting innovative investor-backed companies. Cindy specializes in recruiting senior executive talent and Board Directors with a focus on professional services, industrials (including specialty materials and oil/gas services), consumer products companies, and e-finance firms. She enjoys working with companies early in their life cycles, when an understanding of high growth/low resources is critical, as well as more established middle market firms poised to accelerate their growth. To that end, Cindy brings a new perspective to companies dealing with change – whether that involves the need for new leadership to scale revenue, a company emerging from restructuring, or a firm looking to create new growth opportunities. She is a data-driven professional who applies qualitative insights that help drive “right fit” recruitment decisions for a company, its culture, and its people.

Cindy ran the Office of the CEO at Vonage as a privately held, and then public, company. Leveraging her vast organizational experience, she led the search efforts for C-level executives and Board members, which led to her transition to executive search and talent acquisition, and the founding of CPC Talent.

After beginning her career at Bankers Trust, Cindy went on to structure some of the most innovative financial products of their time for Swiss Bank/UBS, Bear Stearns, and Morgan Stanley.

Cindy earned her B.A. in Mathematics and Philosophy from the University of Southern California and a Master of Public Policy from Harvard University.
