Wade W. Pierson is the Founder and Managing Partner of Impact Talent Ventures. Mr. Pierson identified a clear market void within the talent supply chain and legacy established best practices of many companies he has worked with over his career. Per that backdrop, he set out to create a disruptive company that was focused on making an “Impact” within the enormous addressable market of corporate talent acquisition and talent management. Impact Talent focuses on three key areas; Impact Project Staffing, Impact Executive Search and Impact On-Demand Recruitment.

Prior to starting Impact Talent, Mr. Pierson served as the Chief Operating Officer of a global technology company in the social helping vertical. This firm was able to help over 120,000 individuals, non-profits, and corporations achieve and exceed their philanthropic and fundraising goals.

Previous to his tenure with the technology firm, Mr. Pierson spent 13 years at Lee & Pierson Associates, a globally reaching Talent Management and Consulting Services firm, which he Co-Founded and was a Managing Partner. While with Lee & Pierson, Mr. Pierson led the firm in the areas of business development, client relationships, revenue management, and client engagement management. Mr. Pierson’s firm was acquired in early 2013 by a European based HRO.  

Mr. Pierson started his career with a nationally recognized Staffing firm that was based in Philadelphia. While there, he was promoted 3 times in 4 years and ended as a Senior Director for the Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) practice.

He received an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Rutgers University, and a Master’s of Science Degree in Group Process & Group Dynamics from Drexel University in Philadelphia.
