They take the time to understand your requirements and have a high signal-to-noise ratio when it comes to selecting candidates. We look forward to having them as a partner as we continue to grow.

Fanduel, the leading daily fantasy sports company, is continuing its partnership with Millennium Search LLC, a top executive search firm focused on recruiting for companies in the high tech industry. The continued growth and increasing popularity of Fanduel’s unique fantasy gaming platform has led the company to begin expanding its team.

Based out of New York City, Fanduel established a fantasy sports game that allows players to create fantasy leagues to be played in a single day, rather than throughout an entire season. With options for Football, Baseball, Basketball, and more, Fanduel provides both free and paid fantasy league games. After a successful round of funding in April of this year, the gaming company continues to grow and gain traction among fans.

“It's been incredibly exciting to see the usage of our site explode since our launch in 2009.” says Tom Griffiths, cofounder of Fanduel. “Every new season brings in a new crop of players who are pumped to try our new style of fantasy sports. With site growth comes headcount growth and it's been great working with Millennium Search on that.”

“This account is a very interesting one for me”, says Sandy Bleich, Senior Partner and Executive Recruiter at Millennium Search, who heads the Fanduel account. “Fanduel is looking for game changers who are bright, skilled, and have a passion for fantasy sports and experience in the sector. We have an excellent working relationship with their team, all of whom are highly engaged, responsive, and flexible. The relationship is paying off, and we are seeing the acquisition of top performers at Fanduel!”

“We've been impressed with the approach taken by Sandy and Millennium.” says Griffiths. “They take the time to understand your requirements and have a high signal-to-noise ratio when it comes to selecting candidates. We look forward to having them as a partner as we continue to grow.”

“Fanduel represents everything that we love about the tech world. We love the passion, innovation, and hard work that comes with an organization like this, and we live to create value for those companies,” says Amish Shah, CEO of Millennium Search and fantasy sports enthusiast. “I get excited about these guys, and can’t wait to see what’s in store for them in the future. We are proud to be working with them.”
