Chief People OfficerEaston Bell Sports
Starting with the intake process, the Noto Group team helped us to develop clarity on the success profile which ultimately enabled us to select the best candidate with confidence. Noto Group expertly guided the interview process with multiple stakeholders in Italy, Amsterdam, and the US. A year later, we are thrilled with the fit, performance, and results of the US GM hire we made.

As a valued talent partner, we appreciate Noto Group’s shared values, high standards and passion for building community. They take a holistic approach to hiring, starting with a solid understanding of our strategic priorities and how we function as a business. Working with Sara Spirko is a delight! Her significant industry experience enables her to credibly engage top leaders while her thought-partnership to myself and the team ensures an effective selection process. Every time we work with Noto Group, I’m genuinely appreciative of their support in landing another great hire for our team.
Head of People - Stumptown Coffee Roasters
We have a very progressive and unique culture. The Noto Group team dug deep to understand the leadership, values, and competencies essential for success at EILEEN FISHER. In turn, they represented our brand authentically and brought us remarkable candidates. We quickly became repeat clients!
Noto Group has been a key partner in building a world-class team. As a result, we recruited several proven performers who had the experience, drive, and culture mindset to collaborate, drive change, and thrive. It’s no surprise these important people choices are driving record sales and profit.
We have had three engagements with Noto Group in less than eighteen months as we continue to grow and build out our leadership team. Noto Group proved themselves by working closely with us, understanding our culture and delivering outstanding, talented executives.
Finding authentic and capable leaders for a purpose-driven organization is critical. The Noto Group team is exceptionally talented in listening and advising on building a high-performing organization. They take the time to develop a precise competency framework for each role and bring the patience and determination to find the perfect match. With that attitude, Noto Group takes an active part in the success of our brand journey.
CEO and Chairman
Right out of the gates, Noto Group became an integrated part of our team. They take their time to get to know us, the team dynamics, our business, the category, and even our hopes and dreams. As a result of our ongoing relationship, they’ve pushed us to think differently about how we structure the company and what type of talent we need. They are a trusted partner that we’ve worked with for years.

Noto Case Studies
ICONIC OUTDOOR BRAND, WEST COAST
A leader in the area of sustainability and purpose-driven businesses, our B Corporation client is best known for their outdoor consumer products but engaged us on this search for their growing natural food and beverage brand.
SUSTAINABLE WOMEN’S FASHION BRAND, EAST COAST
With their long-standing Chief Financial Officer planning his retirement, our client engaged Notogroup to search for his successor. Our challenge was to find a CFO for an iconic fashion brand who would appreciate and champion the sustainability and people-focused values of the company from the financial side of the business.
MISSION-DRIVEN NATURAL GROCER, WEST COAST
With a new CEO and an aggressive growth strategy in place, the company engaged Notogroup to round out their management team with exceptionally talented and mission-minded leaders. Working with both the CEO and the majority investor, Notogroup helped the company build out their leadership team with a Chief People Officer, Head of Marketing and Head of Store Development. Subsequent placements included a Chief Financial Officer and Head of Brand.
We work with notable consumer brands in the athletic, outdoor, fashion, food, beverage, natural products, retail and CPG sectors.
