Crunchbase’s leadership hire data will help you easily identify when companies have added a new executive (VP and above) to their leadership team, indicating that a company is expanding and that a new decision-maker is on board. This will help you better identify companies that have the capacity, and resources, to buy a product or service.

Leadership hire data reflects any hire that is VP level or above, including CXO titles. If a company has had a leadership hire mentioned in the news recently, it will show on the company profile page and appear in search using the new Leadership Hire filter.
