Phil Wocken is an accomplished executive recruiter at Talentfoot Executive Search. He has capitalized on his deep digital marketing and media industry expertise to quickly become one of the firm’s top billers. He specializes in representing category-leading technology companies, brands and agencies. He has experience building top-tier teams at companies of all sizes, from Series A and Series B VC-backed start-ups to global Fortune 500 brands.

His record-setting ascension through the ranks at Talentfoot can be directly attributed to his passion for efficiently and effectively matching top-tier talent with the category-leading companies he represents. By approaching recruiting as a matchmaking business, Wocken and his team have built a reputation of making long-term and highly compatible matches, and consistently earning high marks from hiring teams and candidates for an unmatched level of service in the industry.

Prior to joining Talentfoot, Wocken spent eight years as a digital marketing practitioner, with experience working across the entire digital acquisition and retention spectrum. He leverages this experience to deeply understand hiring teams’ requirements and recruit only the most qualified candidates. After suffering through several poorly managed recruiting experiences himself, he realized there had to be a better way. After being represented as a candidate by Talentfoot, he was highly impressed by the level and quality of service provided and decided to join the team.

Wocken holds a B.S. in Marketing from G.R. Herberger College of Business. As hard as he works for his hiring teams and candidates, he fiercely protects his family time to spend with his wife and three young children. He is also an accomplished triathlete, and competes in a number events each year, including Ironman 70.3 races.
