Our Team

Gary D. Mosher

Co-Founder

Gary founded Talentzilla, after realizing how critical the gender diversity issue is in the United States and internationally. During his corporate career, as well as in the Army, Gary observed discriminatory practices toward women and decided to do something about it. He has an extensive network of over 7,000 technical professionals, more than half of these women. From pay inequity and unconscious bias to barriers within the workplace that female technical professionals encounter, Gary wanted to form a recruiting firm to help overcome these challenges for women. Gary is a passionate entrepreneur with proven leadership skills, who excels in relationship building and partnership collaboration to create win-win recruitment solutions. He is experienced in full cycle recruiting at all levels (individual contributor to executive) focusing on, through his formation of Talentzilla, bringing more women to technology roles within companies, both private and public.

Darren Adendorff

Recruiting Consultant

Darren joined Talentzilla as our Recruiting Consultant, after realizing as a recruiter at both domestic as well as international companies, how few women work in the technical areas of organizations he has engaged with. His experience ranges from startup companies such as Collabnet, where he helped them acquire top talent for engineering, product management, and marketing roles, to working in senior roles for several well-known staffing firms. Along with Darren’s passion for gender diversity, he is particularly skilled at finding passive candidates and individuals for those hard-to-fill technical roles. Darren takes special care in developing the relationship with the candidate, and works to find roles for them that will allow them to grow and advance within the client organization. Originally from South Africa, Darren majored in Politics and Philosophy at the University of Durban, and spends his free time volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.
