Founder of the Silicon Valley firm Cadigan Talent Ventures, Steve Cadigan is a sought-after business advisor and expert speaker on the future of work, leadership and recruiting.
Steve Cadigan has been at the forefront of global talent strategy and company culture for the past 30 years. Most famous for scaling Linkedin from 400 to 4000 in 3.5 years, Cadigan also led the development of LI’s legendary company culture and was at the helm of the Talent function for its period of highest growth and through their IPO.
Having worked in 5 different industries and 3 different countries while also leading dozens of acquisition integrations all over the world, Steve Cadigan has built an unparalleled expertise for the talent arena. He has been recognized by both the Wall Street Journal and by Fortune magazine for building world-class teams.
In 2013, Steve Cadigan formed his own firm taking the lessons learned during his corporate experiences and offering them to leaders and organizations around the world. Cadigan’s focus today is to help leaders and organizations build winning talent solutions to compete in an increasingly complex digital economy.
During his tenure at LinkedIn, Steve Cadigan drove the team that successfully hired world class talent in the shadows of Google, Facebook, Apple and Twitter, who were all seen as much sexier and all offered more money and “cooler” benefits. When he joined LinkedIn in 2009, they had no talent brand and were seen as a relatively “boring” professional network. Cadigan catalyzed the executive team and the entire company to join him in building what even today is considered one of the most dynamic and most sought-after organizations in the world.
As a thirty-year talent leader, Steve Cadigan has dedicated his life to understanding the future of work and its implications for professionals and organizations. He has concluded that the future of work is decidedly exciting, but it will require a significant reframe of the employer-employee relationship, and an entirely new understanding of what a “career” means and looks like.
