Lee Schweichler, SPMB (Schweichler Price Mullarkey & Barry) Founder/Partner has been engaged in senior level executive search and selection for over 35 years. He has recently been engaged in the recruitment and selection at the President/CEO and Vice President levels for companies in software, security, storage, mobile, data center technology, networking, e-commerce, digital media, renewable energy and semiconductors.

Lee has completed some of the most successful CEO searches in the Bay Area technology community, including John Morgridge at Cisco (and then identified John Chambers as #2 executive at Cisco), Dan Warmenhoven at Network Appliance, Frank slootman at Data Domain, Dennis Barsema at Redback Networks, and Steve DeWitt at Cobalt. These executives built their companies from early stage to industry leaders, IPO’d them, and grew market value measured at nearly $200 billion. Lee is very adept at identifying talent that goes beyond the resume. He focuses on character and passion in his candidate selection process, and it has paid off over the years.

In 1977, Lee founded the firm, defined the core operating philosophy which sets the firm apart from others, and has built the core team. SPMB has become the largest independent search firm serving the technology community.

Lee has an MBA in Organizational Behavior and Industrial Relations from the University of California at Berkeley, and a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Sterne School in San Francisco, a school for children with learning differences.
