From a young age, all Steve Potestio ever wanted to do was work in advertising. And he did, first on the creative side and then account services. Eventually his ad career took a turn (he lost his job) and he began working on the employment/recruiting side of the business. In the early 90’s in San Francisco he launched one of the industry’s first creative staffing practices.

He has built recruiting companies and brands ever since. Harvester Talent is a culmination of his success bringing talent-centric, industry-focused recruiting brands to life.

Steve has built and led teams recruiting talent for Apple, Nike, adidas, Netflix, Dell, Salesforce, YETI, Whole Foods, Under Armour, Kroger, Columbia Sportswear, and hundreds of agencies. His companies have been recognized by Inc. Magazine for growth and Outside Magazine for culture.

His career has taken him from copywriting, to design, to project and account management, HR, operations and business owner. He drives a 1977 International Harvester Scout, weather permitting.
