Albany Growth announces partnership with CTO Craft

We are proud to announce our new strategic partnership with CTO Craft – a learning and coaching network for Engineering Managers, CTOs, and Tech Leads. This partnership aligns with Albany Growth’s mission to support CTOs in scaling high-performing teams via specialized hiring solutions for technology and product roles.

Albany Growth’s Story.

Albany Growth was established 2 years ago with a clear objective – to create a recruitment business that builds talented product and engineering teams, reducing attrition and increasing retention for technology businesses.

Albany Growth was not our idea, I don’t mind sharing that. Initially hesitant, we questioned the need for another recruitment business in an already saturated market. However, we had a unique opportunity given Albany Partners’ heritage and network, and genuinely wanted to offer generational support to funds, PortCo’s, and executives alike.

So, at the request of our network, Albany Growth was formed.

We are a spin-off from Albany Partners, the CTO and CPO executive search firm. Their network often expressed the same desire— to find a recruitment partner that would help them grow high-performing teams equipped to execute their ambitious roadmaps after landing in a new leadership role, but with the functional specialism, executive search precision, and level of care that Albany Partners is known for.

It is our belief that hiring a CTO is as crucial as hiring an engineer.

The success of senior leaders is determined by the capabilities, motivations, and diversity of the teams that they build.

Albany Growth was created to address this pain point. We curate elite teams that drive innovation, and our process has been crafted to ensure you are provided with access to a deeply-vetted and relevant talent network, with complete context to the market you are hiring within, and an approach that is adaptable to your ways of working.

As a result of our origins, we know how tech and product leadership strategise, socialise and scale— and we adopt an agile process that caters to the needs of early-stage companies to match.
