Neon River is an executive search firm that specialises in partnering with internet, games, software and technology companies to build world-class management teams

Our business is built on three key principles:


We aim to provide the highest level of service to our candidates and clients.


We leverage our specialism in working with internet, software and games businesses to provide a best in class service.


We provide honest and consultative advice and believe in Partner-led project execution.

We recently partnered with Peter on a Chief Product Officer role within our portfolio. Peter was always professional, well prepared, and knowledgeable on the market and the candidates he presented. He had clearly taken the time to assess each profile in detail against the brief and continued to present options right up until we had secured our preferred candidate. I have recommended Peter to our wider portfolio since, and I am sure we will work with him again in the future.

We work with many of the leading technology industry venture capital and private equity firms in the world

At Miniclip, we’ve worked with Peter and Neon River on several important hires over the years, and we’ve always been very happy with the experience. I’d recommend Neon River as one of the very best executive search firms in the market.
