About
Adam Gellert Headshot.jpg

Hey there, I'm Adam, and I'm absolutely obsessed with revolutionizing the world of recruitment for the future.

On a relentless mission, I aim to build the ultimate marketplace for pre-vetted, diverse, and high-potential candidates, seamlessly connecting them with companies. My goal is to transform the job application process, prioritizing candidate experience and facilitating companies in hiring their most dedicated team members, whether they're at 1 or 100 employees.

Recruitment isn't just a job for me; it's my lifestyle. I can engage in extensive conversations on every aspect of organizational growth, focusing on people – be it attraction, retention, culture fit, alignment, or best practices in the modern world.

Entrepreneurship is in my blood, and my current venture, HiredHippo, stands as a testament to my commitment to reshape recruitment and redefine the candidate experience.

As the Founder and CEO, I've pioneered a hiring marketplace that brings together candidates and companies, operating like a dating app but for professional connections, bidding farewell to traditional hiring.

My journey began with Linkus Group, a recruitment firm that I founded to support startups and SMBs in Canada and the US. I noticed a gap in the industry and set out to disrupt recruitment. With a focus on companies under 50 people, we're making waves in the recruitment landscape.

Known for fostering strong relationships with clients, I'm recognized as an honest, driven, and forward-thinking individual, actively engaged in the tech, startup, and small business community.

I'm the Co-Creator of The TalentHelp List, Co-Creator of DisruptHR Vaughan, and have previously chaired the HRPA PD Dinner Committee.

No matter what, my leading key performance indicator? Its recurring clients – a clear testament to the undeniable value my team and I bring to the table.

Linkus Group helped us find higher quality candidates without having to sift through the noise, and helped us manage the candidate experience."
